Red Cape Productions

About

Our Philosophy

We are RedCape. A visual production company that aspires to produce creative and engaging videos, we believe that we do. 

Everyone has a story to tell, whether it's about success, a great service from a business or just to entertain, our minds are engineered to engage with a story. When it is visualised on screen, the engagement is increased tenfold. 

We all have storytelling embedded deep inside us, whether you're telling someone about a situation that happened to  you or describing something you've seen, you are telling a story. We believe that the core of a good video is it's story. If it isn't interesting or engaging, the video won't be either. You may be thinking, 'my business is boring, people nod off when I talk about it', well we know how to make any subject interesting, it's all about the angle you look at it. We specialise in creating a concept that defines what you do whilst entertaining viewers, making your video memorable, which in turn makes your brand memorable. 

Our History

Back in 2008, in the seaside town of Weymouth, Sean and Ralph began as colleagues at Bournemouth University. Whilst working on various projects together, they soon discovered they had a great working relationship, each with their own individual skills that complemented the other, and, most importantly, a shared vision when it came to video. 

Once they had graduated, the logical decision was to continue working together. They began by collaborating with a music producer who had his own professional recording facilities, they became Infinite Possibilities Recording Studios, offering the whole package; music production, recording and the production of a music video to be released with the track. With a focus on the industry, they noticed the rapid increase in online video marketing. More and more businesses were seizing the opportunity to get ahead of the competition by having a video on their website. Whilst businesses competed for better SEO, video became one of the best ways to push a website up the Google search results, partly due to Google owning YouTube. It was in this market that Sean and Ralph found their niche. It allowed them to create videos that would compete on the global market. With this, RedCape Productions was born.
