Simply Thrilled

Okay okay, we know what you’re thinking, but, it’s our blog! We’re allowed to put ourselves first, right?!

Simply Thrilled is a video production company, armed with fresh ideas and always shooting to thrill.

We work with people like Universal, Island Records, Bose, Boots, Download Festival, The Guardian and many, many more.

We do all the usual stuff you’d expect from a leading video production agency, using Hollywood-grade kit operated by a roster of exceptional creative talent and we offer a full-service approach from the germ of an idea right on through to delivery, marketing, advertising and more.

What’s truly unique about us though, is we felt something was missing in the mix.

It felt like many people were just making content to fit what they wanted, or what the client wanted but not, necessarily, what the audience wanted to actually watch. These 3 things can sometimes be the same thing, but often aren't.

That’s why we came up with our own unique, proprietary ViralPixel technology which, like a detective, takes the analytics from what the audience in your niche are watching on Youtube, commenting on, liking, sharing and otherwise engaging with and then breaks it down across over 500 elements.

Then, cos ideas and creativity is at the core of what we do, we  use this comprehensive info to make a film which is fresh as a daisy but also fits like a glove to the audience you’re targeting. If you’d like to know more about this do go and check it out over here

This can lead to fantastic results, we’ve racked up over 50 million views on Youtube alone with hundreds of thousands of comments, likes and shares. The types of video production services we provide are too numerous to list out here, but as a general rule if you can draw it or point a camera at it we can probably do it :-)
