a LITTLE BIT ABOUT US...

  Our first job together in the spectacular Falkland Islands

Mark loves to tell the origin story of how Second Draft was first dreamed up, 8000 miles away from home, down in the windswept Falkland Islands, in the South Atlantic ocean.

If you buy him a coffee he'll regale you with the "director's cut" of that particular adventure! But for now...

The Short Version

He was researching a documentary and needed a collaborator and a guide. Glen was a cameraman and editor at the country’s TV station. He knew the locals, and knew where they kept the imported beer.

Six months later they were filming together again, back in the UK, as part of a team producing factual TV. But as exciting as it was seeing their work on screen, both Glen and Mark had a vision for bringing that cinematic style and premium standards to businesses and organisations who had their own equally fascinating stories to tell.

Disrupting Corporate Video

They wanted to help these companies talk to their customers and audiences in a fresh and appealing way.

They wanted to shake up the world of corporate video and make films with heart and passion, films that reflected the wonder and obsession business owners, artisans and professionals have with their work.

They wanted to make films that people want to watch again and again.

Second Draft are a lean and flexible production company with a prodigious work ethic, and what makes them unique is how they combine their respective training - Glen in TV and Film production, Mark in Journalism and Economics - to create projects that look spectacular whilst delivering intelligence and depth.

Putting the Plan Into Action

We received widespread acclaim when we produced the official film for Sunderland’s 2021 City of Culture bid, a video which quickly racked up 100k views in its first two weeks and helped show the ambition and potential in the north east city.

Other recent highlights have included creating a series of videos for Generator’s spectacular brand revamp, a ‘hero’ film for multinational engineering consultancy firm Patrick Parsons, a long promotional piece on successful alumni for the University of Sunderland and a very special, soon-to-launch podcast project for one of the UK's leading brands.

 

But even as Second Draft keeps growing our mission to give each and every client that premium, bespoke service will still remain. We're always excited about what is coming next!
