About Nimble Films
To impact people’s thinking, show them a new idea that makes the existing ideas obsolete.About Nimble FilmsWe make films that promote remarkable Australians who produce, serve, grow or generate ideas and believe in a fair and inclusive society. Together we can create a community where all people and the environment can thrive.
We work hard to be the best we can be because we are passionate about making quality films and providing excellent service, without bullshit and ego.
We measure our success in three ways;
The way we operate our business and the projects we work on have a minimal impact on the environment. – The technology we use to create our films is entirely digital, so our environmental footprint is tiny. When on location, we stick to the old adage, “Take on photos, leave only footprints.”
Socially. As people, we act with integrity and respect for all, and we expect the people we work with and the projects we work on to have the same ethos. We look to be remarkable, working at the point where excellence and the unexpected collide. We are intentional, making decisions with purpose and consideration. We are curious; we engage by listening to develop a deeper understanding.
Financial. To run a financially secure and profitable business. When we plan a project to bring a measurable financial reward to a client, it is successful. Where ever possible, we stick to the agreed budget. Above all, to be clear and upfront in our communication about our business expectations.
Nimble films grew out of two years of periodic lockdowns. It was a time to reevaluate and reset.
Globally the video production industry pretty much ground to a halt. I joined forces with a group of producers from different time zones to discuss how we could better serve our clients when we were able to.
We identified three key areas of evolution.
- The cost of video production has always been a perceived barrier for many clients.
- Video production was too time-consuming.
- Clients were finding that the competition for the attention of their clients was increasingly difficult.
The first two points are the same. We determined that working as a one or two-person crew would become the norm. We acknowledged that there would be times when big budgets and big crews are needed.
The third point is a little more complex. However, it boils down to people becoming bored of constantly being served logical reasons to change. We had to find a way of bringing emotions into our films.
And this is where stories come into the equation. All good stories involve people and their experiences, and the brain processes stories on an emotional level, not a logical level.
