Looking Glass has been trading since 2000 and is based in Bedford - we specialise in video production of corporate technology videos for engineering, industrial, technical service sectors and product manufacturers. Our videos have been used for many applications including: technical sales promos, product demonstration & training, factory tours, corporate videos & exhibitions.
As well as working for companies in Bedford, Cambridge and Milton Keynes - we also welcome video filming enquiries from Northampton, Wellingborough, Kettering, Corby, Peterborough, Luton, Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard. We do work for firms outside these areas, especially on our combined 3D Animation & Video Projects, so contact us for further information if needed.

First of all get in touch - contact details are at the bottom of the page - we can then arrange a visit to discuss and have a look at your factory or facility. During the visit we'll be able to demo appropriate examples of our video production work and we can explore what you'd like to do and show.
Video filming usually takes a day; a script is then written and the video footage is edited. You'll get to see draft copies throughout the production process and make script or shot alterations if needed. The video production process usually takes around three weeks from beginning to end.
The video production process...
We usually work with a two man crew - project director and professional cameraman. We'll visit in advance to go over things, but it's good idea to let staff know when we'll be filming and to have a good tidy up! We'll obviously try to keep disruption to a minimum, but it's worth allocating specific time for each department that will appear in the video.
Getting your message across...
It's said that a picture paints a thousand words, but sometimes visuals alone can't get across the complete picture - that's where spoken commentary and onscreen captions can help enormously. A voice-over can both enforce the video's message and get across key features that may not be immediately obvious to the viewer and title captioning can help consolidate key points raised in the video.
The video edit...
Once the footage has been captured it's edited - in effect this is where we distil down the best clips of video footage, add commentary, captions and music (if required) to create your finished video.
Using your video...
Once complete, your video copies are supplied as files that can be played on computers, added into presentations (PowerPoint, etc) or used online - DVD or Blu-ray can be supplied if required. There are no restrictions on video usage and any music used is officially licensed.
