Truly professional video content for your business, on a tight budget?

Let us solve that mystery for you!

You probably wouldn't represent yourself or your business with a cardboard sign written in ink-marker and tied to a railing - no matter how tight the purse-strings! - It's a serious professional business you're running after all, not a jumble sale!

And yet so many people seem to imagine that's the level at which they might harness online video channels such as YouTube or Vimeo... Bawling into cheap webcams, drooling into iPhones... That, or cobbling together some wobbly home movie that may well see them sued because they don't understand the intricacies of Intellectual Property rights. - None of this reflects well on those who persist in it! Frankly - It's kid's stuff!

If you're really serious about your business, and serious about harnessing the power of video, you need something other than a half-baked amateur home movie representing it! - It's just THAT simple!

TFGtv provide you with access to properly equipped, properly qualified, broadcast professionals at an affordable price. We offer complete production packages that yield programmes of a sensible length from just £499* The short sampler reel above is designed to give you a rough idea of the sort of programmes we make for small businesses. No library footage or bought-in animations pad this showreel out! We've no need for such tricks! Everything you see here really is original footage from genuine low-cost programmes TFGtv have made...

We've been producing business videos since 1986. That experience tells us that one of the first things you probably need to know is how much it all costs. That's why we're happy to provide a rough guide to pricing supported by a few real-life examples. We don't do smoke-and-mirrors pricing - and even our £499* headline price is for a programme of up to ten minutes in length, finished and ready to go with stock music and basic titles.

* Please note that our lowest-cost 'Webcast' package has been reduced to £499 by way of a special offer for winter 2014-15

TFGtv provide a complete video production service, based right here in Scotland. One that is specifically geared to meet the needs of Micro, Small and Medium sized enterprises as well as cost-conscious corporate, third sector and public sector clients. No matter how modest the budget, your programme is project-managed to broadcast standards and is fully audited to protect your legal rights to the finished product.

TFGtv is owned and operated by a former ITV News Cameraman who rose through the ranks to lecture in TV production at one of Scotland's most respected colleges and sit on SQA qualification design teams. Our operating procedures are based on 35+ years of broadcast, commercial and educational expertise... All our crew are trained and qualified to a minimum of HNC/D level specifically in a television-related discipline.

TFGtv are business video specialists... We are NOT Wedding Videographers and don't pretend to be 'Jack of All Trades'. Rather than try to undermine or desperately poach business from them, we work with Web Designers, Graphics Artists, Musicians, Advertising Agents, PR companies and other creatives to ensure that each particular job is done by the people best-suited to doing it.

TFGtv regularly collaborate with other creative professionals and agencies. Please contact us for agency rates if yours is a creative agency commissioning work for third parties; we'd be delighted to discuss working with you.
