Real People. Real Stories. Real Impact.
Every film that we make is designed to do something. To inspire. To educate. To be shared. And most importantly of all, to move people to action.
We specialise in making videos for charities, health organisations and brands. We work with agencies or directly with clients.
Our films often feature real people’s stories. They create authentic emotional connections and communicate brand values in a deeply personal way. At the heart of what we do is the audience: connect with your viewers and they’ll respond in wonderful ways.
Our skills go beyond simply making a film. We help our clients to identify their audience and to design a film that engages them. We then promote via digital and traditional channels to reach the best possible audience.
CASE STUDY VIDEO
Dementia UK wanted a film to show the need for specialist nurses to help carers.
We worked with them to recruit a young family and then to shape their story into an intimate film that movingly demonstrates the need for donations to the scheme.
Gaby and Jeremy made the process of producing this film so easy. They just understood what we needed from the brief and executed it. The result was a film that we couldn’t be prouder of.
Tommy’s wanted a visually arresting, modern film, with clearly expressed key-messages to raise awareness of the seriousness of early miscarriage.
We collaborated with Rosie to develop her story into a script and on the day of filming we gently worked with her to deliver her story directly to camera.
Magneto demonstrated that they really understand our brand, what we want to say and the way we want to say it. We didn’t want another charity film, we wanted something that stood out and that’s what we got!
LIVING WITH CANCER
Beating Bowel Cancer commissioned us to make a campaigning video that shows the impact of cancer on the whole family. We worked with Ben and Louise and their young family to script and shoot a highly visual film that became a key part of the Hidden Heartache campaign.
Magneto Films took our brief and brought it to life. Our film was a difficult subject matter and the team sensitively handled our case studies. The film has helped amplify our campaign and bring in a different dimension.
FIT FOR THE FUTURE
These charity impact videos were commissioned to raise funding for Age UK’s fit for the future programme.
The charity had some impressive statistics and outcomes so we suggested bringing the data to life by featuring people who’d successfully taken part in fit for the future.
Gaby and Jeremy understood the aim and objective of the project and were extremely good at making film participants comfortable in front of the camera. I will definitely recommend Magneto to other projects and organisations.
Engaging stories. Expertly told.
Video is a wonderful way to capture people’s stories and the amazing things that they say. But it takes skill and experience to help people come across in a natural way on camera and to speak in their true voices. Magneto’s founding partners, Gaby and Jeremy, are both BBC trained film makers and everyone in the team is a broadcast professional, with credits that range from X-Factor to Compare the Meerkat adverts. They bring skills of high quality film production to everything we do. It makes our films creative, engaging and above all watchable.

The video Magneto Films made helped us raise money, get petition sign-ups and increase awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation and how The Children’s Society works to prevent it from happening.
