Commercial Video

CAR Video Unit can offer professional video services, at competitive commercial rates, to local businesses and other statutory organisations. Ten years ago, an organisation with a website was a novelty. Five years ago, when websites had established themselves as the ‘shop window’ of the 21st Century, it became impossible to imagine any kind of serious organisation without one. Now, it is those websites utilising video which stand out from the crowd – and we feel that the provision of such video content will become a huge market, in Rossendale, Lancashire and beyond over the next few years.

Previous clients include Bacup Consortium, Groundwork Pennine Lancashire, Lancashire County Council, Mid Pennine Arts and Rossendale Leisure Trust.

Video Products

CAR Video Unit provides clients from Rossendale and beyond with a comprehensive professional package of video planning/origination, production, editing and delivery in the format(s) required by clients – from three minute promotional content aimed at the web, through DVD presentations for conference / trade fair purposes, to large educational / training projects for clients’ internal or external use. Delivered content includes recorded sound, voice overs and / or copyright free music as required.

Where projects for community and voluntary groups are concerned, in line with the Video Unit’s social enterprise role these will be charged at cost – merely providing some contribution regarding equipment hire etc. Projects of this nature undertaken when the Video Unit operated as an arm of Community Action in Rossendale include short promotional films for Rossendale’s Credit Unions, Haslingden Bowling Club, Rossendale Lions and Haslingden Kickboxing Club.

Commercial projects are costed on a time basis in respect of personnel and equipment hire, plus materials costs and expenses.

Previous large institutional projects successfully completed whilst operating as an arm of Community Action in Rossendale include a 45’ documentary entitled Memories of the Mills (commissioned by Heritage Lottery and now sold at the museum shops of the Helmshore and Burnley textile museums at the museums’ request) and a series of twelve short films produced as part of Pennine Groundwork’s Valley of Stone project.
