Working with SmartFilms was a fun experience and we found them to be enthusiastic about our work and what we wanted to achieve. We felt it was a collaborative effort and that our brief was listened to, particularly as it changed along the way.
The Action Group
Smart Film Productions created an animated video for University Technology to help describe who we are and what we do. From the project outset Ondrej and Marcin showed a great understanding of University Technology and how best to show this through video. We are very pleased with the outcome and the video has already generated positive reaction at events we have exhibited at.
SEEL (Social Enterprise in East Lothian) commissioned Smart Film Production to make our new promotional film with the aim of promoting the diversity of social enterprises across East Lothian and also to promote the work of SEEL. Ondrej and Marcin are both very professional in their approach and delivery. It was quite a difficult task as they were to film 5 different businesses at different times of the day and one early evening which was so flexible of them. They both planned out places to film, timings and places of interest in the particular areas with precision and they were incredibly organised with up to date equipment. The whole experience was positive and it was great fun to work with the guys. I would highly recommend Smart Film Production for all your film needs.
I have had the fantastic opportunity to witness Ondrej's work quite intensively in the last year and have truly enjoyed collaborating with him. He has always shown a high degree of professionalism, great empathy and capacity to listen to the customer. I have been inspired by his commitment to the work and his ability to consider the customers' perspective and ideas, and willing to include them in his work. Ondrej is a very sensitive video-maker, very attentive to details and completely respectful of the circumstances he finds himself in during filming, however challenging. His service is quick, genuinely caring and absolutely stunning.
I approached Smartfilm on behalf of StreetSMART Scotland to create a promotional video for our up and coming fundraising season. I now realise that I had no idea of all the different elements that needed to be concidederd to bring it all together, but Ondrej and Marcin were always able to give us the benefit of their experience and enthusiasm.
The video that was produced has since been of huge benefit to our organisation. It has allowed us to build better relationships with several of our key stakeholders because of the collaborative marketing opportunity that the video offered. It has also meant that we are able to spread the word about what we do in a much more effective way than other online resources would have allowed.
From discussing the first ideas through to launching the video it was a great project and resulted in a video that is just what we were looking for. I would highly recommend using video to promote your organisation and Smart Film to do so.

Ondrej and Marcin from Smart Film Production are slick operators. They produced a fun, inspiring, visually captivating film which included all the right messaging for our target audience. They understood the brief perfectly, interpreting it beautifully. Ondrej and Marcin were efficient and produced our film extremely quickly. We were absolutely delighted with the final results. We would be happy to use this talented young team in the future and to recommend Smart Film Production to others.
We were delighted when Smart Film Production offered to film our stakeholder event. They were organised and helpful from the very start, listened to what we needed and involved us in the process throughout. The event explored promoting more openness about death, dying bereavement, and the day’s filming included responding sensitively to personal reflections on these issues. We’re very happy with the resulting short film which captures nicely the mood of the event.
I would like to thank Smart Film Production for their help and support on my latest film Avaritia. They were very reliable and professional making a strong contribution to this project. I recommend them to all my friends and colleagues.
I engaged Smart Film Production for a European funded programme on entrepreneurship and enterprise (www.100mirrors.eu) and found their commitment, support and technical expertise so good that we reengaged them for another filming project for another programme. The team are efficient and effective. They propose scenarios based on basic information and we very flexible. We were extremely happy with the results and will definitely use them again.

ICE Store is a new business and it was essential to get our message across to potential customers about who we are and what we do. Without doubt the best way to do this is through video as it not only allows you to display your product but also to promote your personality, branding and values. Needless to say, putting this emphasis on a promotional film means that you have to get it right, if you don’t capture the person’s attention in the right way they won’t come back to you.
Smart Film Production were fantastic in this regard. They worked with us to understand who we were and our message before we embarked on the filming. They led on the technical aspects and were very collaborative when it came to the final edit, working with us and offering helpful advice at each stage of the process.
I see this type of brand communication as essential to our business and would strongly recommend their services.
