We’re the leading video production company in Birmingham and the West Midlands. So we are ideally positioned to cater to your creative content needs. We’ve written elsewhere about why you generally might choose us for your video. But we wanted to explain why you might choose us if you’re looking for someone local. Our experience and scalable pricing means we’re able to work with small local businesses as well as global brands. From simple one day corporate video shoots to large scale international commercials our portfolio proves our range. We provide corporate communications, branded content or TV commercials. And we’ve got the knowledge, experience and creativity you need.

Why choose a local company?

Why choose us if you’re looking for a local video production company? For us, there are two good answers to this question.

1. We know Birmingham, its people, crew, locations and its bureaucracy. We know how and where to get things done here.

2. We support Birmingham. And by working with us you will too.

These are broken these down in a lot more detail below.

Video Production Birmingham


We are evangelists for Birmingham and the region.  Our base has been in Birmingham since we started in 2011. And we’re now part of the furniture in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery QuarterWe know the city very well. From the people to the crew, from the locations to the bureaucracy.  We’re the local company who know how to find things, where to go to get things and who to ask to get things done. And if we don’t know it, we know the people who do.
The main reason we know the city well is because we’ve shot so many films for Birmingham-based companies. Our local clients have included all these organisations and many more.

We know the city like the back of our hands. As a video production company we’ve shot all over Birmingham. As a result our local knowledge is so useful it’s been drafted in for feature films and BBC Dramas. Often when the usual options haven’t returned satisfactory results.

In addition to all of this we know that the work we do for companies here is good. The film we made for Business Birmingham has survived the organisation rebranding itself 3 times, with the film being sent back to us each time to get rebranded. And the film we made for Javelin Block won the Regional Royal Television Society Award for Best Promotional Programme.

Vermillion started in Birmingham and although we’ve worked all over the world now, our heart is here.

And in a huge number of ways, as well as supporting the wider region.  For example, we provided pro bono work for Birmingham City Ladies Football Club as part of our sport portfolio and we created a pro bono film for Birmingham Hippodrome for the £1M new stage appeal. Birmingham City Council have pitched for major international festivals with our help.

We’re invested in the local economy. The last time we asked our local equipment hire company, we were their biggest non-TV client. We use local freelancers and we support Birmingham organisations. Members of our team are involved in all kinds of things including chairing the West Midlands Screen Bureau. And we’ve chaired Screen Central to support grass roots filmmakers. Also, we’ve been a trustee and financial supporter of Flatpack Film Festival. Finally, we’ve spoken at TEDx Brum, LoveBrum, Pekachuka in Birmingham and Coventry and a number of local schools.
