“Paula and Gary work hard to turn around work on tight deadlines and have a real understanding of the media landscape.

Jenni Fryer – St Giles Hospice
“They are SO professional, intentionally unobtrusive”
“Oh my goodness! If you need any event videoed PLEASE use Gary and Paula Young. They are SO professional, intentionally unobtrusive, empathetic to situations and their turnaround for the work was very quick.
“Paula came to film my video and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her as I will definitely use her again.”
Gill M – Psychotherapist and life coach
“All parties involved were delighted with the heartwarming video”
“Paula has filmed and edited countless videos over the years in her role as part-time media relations officer for Cancer Research UK. In 2015 she was commissioned to produce the official video for our Kids and Teens Awards Party sponsored by TK Maxx.
“All parties involved were delighted with the heartwarming video, which featured children meeting celebrities and promoted the charity’s work.”
Martin M – Cancer Research UK
“Helped to articulate our message with sensitivity and understanding”
“Paula and Gary filmed and edited a video for our website, which was instrumental in helping us secure ‘charity of the year’ status with a local business and to raise our profile with the public.
“We were really nervous about being filmed, especially as the subject matter was so personal but Paula and Gary helped us articulate our message with sensitivity and understanding.
“We were thrilled with the end result, which beautifully captured our daughter’s personality while explaining what our memorial garden appeal was all about.”
Kerry and Ivan M – Violets in Bloom
“In one day I created a simple video, learned how to edit”
“I attended the video-making course with zero experience and feeling quite nervous. I hate seeing myself on videos and pictures and my IT skills are limited, to say the least.
“I was greeted by Magic Lantern and immediately put at my ease. I learned some things that are simple and effective that I could use straight away with no hassle.
“In one day I created a simple video, learned how to edit and make it my own. I wanted to do the course so that I could interview some of my clients and market myself via them on social media, which I now feel equipped to do. I never imagined that anyone could do this with my limited skillset in one day. I am going to begin this process with my clients this week and Magic Lantern are already on hand to help me make the best job of this. Thank you so much, Paula and Gary!"
Laura G – True Potential Life Management
“The quality of the finished videos has been excellent”
“I would highly recommend using the services of Paula and Gary from Magic Lantern Media.
“In total, they have produced five promotional videos for Sport Birmingham, requiring two or three briefing meetings in our offices; a number of site visits for filming in different parts of the city and a set of rather vague and varied briefs!
“Paula and Gary were very consultative, adaptable, patient and good humoured about confirming the scope of the work with us and the length of time it took to prepare, film and edit the videos.
“Their work was even more remarkable as they were required to interview a number of individuals with varying impairments - including intellectual disabilities - which required lots of patience, the rephrasing of questions and a creative approach a lot of the time.
“The quality of the finished videos has been excellent with Paula and Gary’s attention to detail and overall customer service second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend Magic Lantern Media for any filming requirements and cannot thank them enough.”
Amy B – Sport Birmingham
“Really helped to boost our business”
“I have employed Paula as a PR consultant and she has written several press releases and advertorials for me. I have always found her to be enthusiastic, dedicated, and highly professional.
“She then commissioned a promotional video showcasing our landscape gardening services. This was put together with much care and attention and has really helped bring our business to life.
“Gary has also written and designed a half-page advertorial feature for a magazine, which was turned around in super-fast time and really helped boost the business.”
Simon R – Beautiful Gardens
“Can’t recommend your services enough”
“I just want to say a huge thank you for my video - you’ve done a great job. On the day, you both totally put me at ease and the final cut is brilliant. I can’t wait to show it everyone!! I can’t recommend your services enough.”
Suzanna S – Forever Living
“Their help with presentation techniques proved invaluable”
“Magic Lantern Media produced seven short films for members of my sales team.
“Paula and Gary were great to work with and their friendly manner really helped put the team at ease. Their help with presentation techniques proved invaluable and we were delighted with the end results. The videos all looked really professional and I’d thoroughly recommend Magic Lantern Media to others.”
Helen B – Business coach and nutritional therapist
“A joy to watch and something we will treasure forever”
“Magic Lantern Media edited together a collection of our existing pictures and videos for our baby’s first birthday. This was an absolute joy to watch and it’s something we will treasure forever.
“I’d recommend this service because we would never have found the time to figure out how to do this ourselves and the end result would not have been anywhere near as professional.”
Jo R – Mum
“The quality... and attention to customer needs was impressive”
“I recently requested some video editing work from Paula, I supplied some photos and a short video all of which were not great quality.
“Paula managed to turn these into a very impressive promotional video that I have no hesitation in using on my website. The quality, quick turnaround and attention to customer needs was very impressive.”
Steve M – Hansai Technology
