325 Productions UK




Video production for Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and beyond…

Welcome to 325 Productions UK. 

After an extensive career in care and education, working predominantly with young people with behavioural issues, I pursued a career change and returned to full time education.

After graduating from the University of Brighton I began working in factual television (Cowboy Builders, Food Unwrapped, Mr Drew’s School for Boys) before settling on a career in video production.

The name 325 Productions UK is derived from my university email login and seemed an appropriate name for the company I have founded since changing my career path.

Here you’ll find examples of my video production work, ranging from business and corporate promos, to charity videos, to e-Learning and training content, to music videos and photography.

I take great pleasure in providing a highly personable service for all my clients and on this site you will find testimonials to that effect.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Live + online event videos

It has been a turbulent time for the live event industry since the pandemic, but this has also provided opportunity to explore new ways of creating live event videos and creating content.

During the pandemic I found myself being asked to create online event videos using screen capture and motion graphics, as well as coordinating video shoots all over the world – Chicago, New York, Dublin, Brisbane – to create pre recorded content to be streamed during online events.

Now, with live events back up and running we have seen the return of more traditional event capture and it has been fantastic to be out filming face-to-face with people again and continuing to make engaging video content for events.

See my Live event playlist for examples.

Cats Protection & charity videos

After volunteering as a PR volunteer for Cats Protection in 2014 I was lucky enough to be given an opportunity to produce a video for one of their campaigns.  They have been a client of mine ever since.

In that time I have produced every type of video for the charity, including social media campaign videos, ‘How to’ guides, ‘Challenge event’ promos and a wide range of training and internal  content as well.

My work with CP have also given me the opportunity to work with several celebrities, including the legendary Bob Mortimer, which you can see evidence of in the video example above, as well as other animal charities. Causes that are very close to my heart.

For examples of my work for animal charities please visit my ‘Animal charity playlist’.

Business profile & explainer videos

Over the years I have had the privilege of working with a wide variety of businesses andhave created a wide range of video content.

From business explainers, to recruitment videos to product specific promos and animations, I’ve done it all.  

My approach to showcasing a business is to always show authenticity, even in scripted pieces, as I believe this is the most effective way to engage with a target audience. 

In the example above, Roots Research wanted exactly this, a warts and all showcase of their business (with bloopers) to illustrate their fun and friendly workplace.

Having worked for Roots Research for several years I have heard first hand that new recruits replied to work for Roots based on watching this video.

Social media video content

Online video has changed dramatically in recent years, with platforms like Instagram and Tik Tok growing in popularity, and this has changed how businesses should think about their video content and online marketing.

I pride myself on keeping up to date with video trends in order to advise my clients, not just on what type of video to produce, but how to publish this online to get maximum reach, and most importantly, return on their investment.

As such, I always try to maximise filming days to create as much content as possible each time, potentially generating months of content from just one shoot.

E-Learning and training videos

Whether on a simple white backdrop or green screen, talking heads piece-to-camera or detailed narrative, E-learning videos are an essential tool for training purposes and internal content.

Unfortunately I can only show a very short, muted sample of our most recent training video production as often content is confidential and we respect our client’s privacy.

If you would like to know more about how I approach E-learning, training and pre recorded event content please get in touch.

Music videos

As a musician myself, creating music videos is a true passion of mine. On these projects I get the opportunity to work with experimental lighting and creative editing techniques to showcase artists and performers in the best possible way.

One of my favourite projects was producing the music video for Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts – Unavailable (remix) release (pictured above), which was premiered on Planet Rock Radio’s website.

Empathy is the Key

I have taken a long time to hone the technical skills, to the standard I demand of myself, in order to produce high quality and engaging video content and photography for my clients. But I am very aware that technical skills alone aren’t enough.

I pride myself on being highly organised, an excellent communicator and above all empathetic. I emphasise the importance of empathy because I am often thrown into scenarios, industries, situations where I have no prior knowledge of the subject matter or people I am filming or photographing.  It is my job to quickly understand the messages my clients want to portray and who they are trying to reach,  in order for me to communicate that vision through my work.

Furthermore, not everyone likes to be filmed or photographed! It is therefore my role to communicate well with my subjects or talent and make them feel relaxed so they can give their best performance on camera and present themselves in the most engaging way. Clients often offer testimonials to this effect, which gives me an enormous amount of satisfaction whenever I hear this.

Although I am are based in Mid Sussex my work has taken me into surrounding counties,such as Surrey, Kent and Hampshire, as well as further afield to Exeter, Manchester and internationally to Paris and Munich as well.

I love my job. The variety it brings, the challenges it brings and all the different types of people I meet.

Our Testimonials

“I work with Russ Stedman regularly on a number of projects and have done for a number of years now. I couldn’t recommend him enough. He’s great at shooting, he’s very good at editing. He listens when we have an editorial question that we’d like to discuss and take a project forward. He’s very good at understanding what our requirements are, what we would like as an end product, and helping us to visualise how to get there and working with us to produce content that works for us. I can’t recommend him enough.”

Our Testimonials

“….I happily recommend Russ. Firstly he has many talents. He’s a great sounding board and mentor when it comes to scripting videos, so at the day of filming you know you’ve got the script right. He then prepares you well and puts you at ease on the day of filming… He is very patient and has a great attention to detail when dealing with edits and the end result was amazing, and to the highest standards…”

Our Testimonials

“It was a real joy working on two videos with 325productionsUK. Not only was Russ extremely attentive and wanted to be certain that the output met with our expectations, but it was also a fun process too. It’s great to come across a practitioner who has a creative approach but is also very practical too; mindful of budget, logistics, team resource and timeframes. In all, we got great results”

Our Testimonials

“I would not hesitate in recommending Russ and his team at 325 productions UK – I found Russ so easy to work with and importantly spoke a language I could understand, always on time and prompt, an absolute pleasure.

Russ took the time to really understand our project and worked with us to bring this to life, bringing a wealth of expertise and creative ideas to the table, which was invaluable. His demeanour is very professional but relaxed which really helped on the day. The result was we received an incredible video that captured the spirit of our Fairways to Horsham event perfectly. I will use Russ and 325 productions UK again without a shadow of a doubt.”

Our Testimonials

“325 productions UK made my video marketing dreams come true. Russell made the process of translating my ideas into the finished product so simple. As we were talking about what I wanted he was actually visualising the video in his head, which I hadn’t realised at the time. I am overjoyed by his complete view of my business from just one meeting. Many business contacts now tell me frequently that they know what I do as a result of watching the video – for a marketer like myself that is priceless. I highly recommend 325 productions UK.”

Eny Osung

Founder, Small Business e-Marketing

Our Testimonials

“Russell took the time to listen to a whole heap of muddled ideas and created a short animation that flowed seamlessly. I was always kept involved in the process and would call on Russell again should the need arise!”

Phil Milton

Our Testimonials

“I wanted a professional-looking video short for my website homepage at www.EasyProbate.biz. I was impressed by the other work Matt and Russell had shown me and I am very pleased with our collaboration. The amount of preparation work prior to the filming was very detailed and inclusive of all kinds of things I would not have thought of. It took all day to set up the lighting, sound and get the rather feeble actor (ME) to deliver lines effectively and to the various camera angles that I wanted. Russell was a firm but demanding producer and then spent several hours in the edit to deliver a highly professional product that has given me a return on investment. Matt’s assiduous attention to the light and shadow makes all the difference between a video and a ‘top quality video’. Highly recommended.”
