Motion Videos UK — Our definition is simple:
Be innovative in our MOTION design (animation and visual effects) and create motivating VIDEOS (content and experiences) that help brands to stand out in the UK (and worldwide).
Okay. Maybe it’s not that straightforward.
But we’re a diverse, independent video production, motion design and animation studio with big ideas. We operate out of a small studio located in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. Where we love —
CRAFTING VISUAL EXPERIENCES THAT GENUINELY MOVE PEOPLE.
Behind everything we create is the ultimate goal of moving customers in the direction our clients crave.
BRINGING PLEASURE, MEANING AND BEAUTY TO OUR SMALL WORLD USING THE ART OF MOVEMENT.
Everything we do is made to move — Move brands towards achieving objectives, move audiences, engage and connect people. Ultimately, move customers towards making important buying decisions.
MAKING VISUAL EXPERIENCES THAT ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND BUT DIFFICULT TO FORGET.
Essentially, we’re movement artists who love to make stories move in magnificent and unforgettable ways.
So if you’re looking for a creative video studio with the skills and resources to take any video idea from scribble to screen, look no further than Motion Videos UK.
Our founder and Creative Director Scott Green (aka Motion-Man) and his coalition of trusty allies serve and empower brands with uber-creative and indestructible visual experiences. Capable of overpowering the most formidable adversaries.
We guide them towards victory in a complex digital universe (without the Hollywood price tag!) using our advanced (and somewhat radioactive) weapons of mass creation. With Scott’s super-sonic eye, we have the power to move mere mortals and get their senses tingling.
So, no matter how many hits you take or how many you want to make. Rest assured that your video creation sidekick will always be there for you. The only thing that stands between your brand and total oblivion is Motion-Man!

We’ve perfected a 10-step video production process that truly works.
STEP 1: OBJECTIVE
Move forwards by working backwards — Knowing what you want to achieve is the first step in creating successful video content.
STEP 2: STRATEGY
Knowing your target audience, what they like, and how they think is the essence of developing a mindful strategy for them.
STEP 3: CONCEPT
The ‘big idea’ behind your video — We develop a creative approach that will connect your audience with your objective.
STEP 4: VISUALISE
We write scripts, make storyboards, and design style-frames to help visualise how the video will look and feel.
STEP 5: CREATE
Everything it’s made of is captured, created and designed. Ensuring that it doesn’t just look good, but delivers the goods too.
STEP 6: MOTION
This is where the real magic happens; all of the moving parts are put into motion. Bring your idea to life.
STEP 7: DISTRIBUTE
Once your video content is delivered and hosted, you can begin to distribute and promote it according to your video strategy.
STEP 8: ENGAGE
Watch the views, likes, shares and sales roll in, connect with your viewers and show them some love.
STEP 9: ANALYSE
We shouldn’t stop there — Get to know how your audience interacts with your video using analytics and use it to your advantage.
STEP 10: REPEAT
Review the data, adjust your video strategy and continue to feed your audiences’ content-hungry appetite until your goal is achieved.
We’ve also been recognised as an innovative video production business by the 2020 Greater Manchester Business Awards.
They say it’s not the winning but the taking part that matters. Well, winning would have been nice, but I was highly honoured to be a finalist of the Greater Manchester Business Awards 2020.
Unlike other business awards, all finalists had to produce a short video saying what they do and why they should win. Considering we’re called Motion Videos UK, you’d think this would be right up our street. Well, yes and no. Like hairdressers hair and cobblers shoes, we’re great at producing other companies marketing, but our own? So the tables had officially turned.
Challenge accepted. I had to step out from behind the camera, practice what I preach, and make the best presentation possible.
With that in mind, I wasn’t going to submit your average, run-of-mill, vlog-style video and wax lyrical to the camera about my achievements.
A) That would be too easy. B) I know that style of naval-gazing video bores the audience. C) It certainly wouldn’t help us stand out as an innovative video business.
I wanted to create a video that would be meaningful, communicate purpose, had an element of visual storytelling that would ultimately stick in the minds of the audience. After all, that’s what I do for my clients.
As is my usual process (regardless of the client or product), I produce films by working backwards from ‘what do we want the audience to remember?’ Or, in this case, what’s the lasting thought I wanted to create on how I help businesses present the best version of themselves through video.
Brainstorming with long-term collaborator and creative marketing expert Baz Richardson, we talked about a psychological study involving three chocolate brownies. In particular, how the different ways they were presented affected their value. It was the perfect analogy for what we do for our clients.
A video shoot involving eating chocolate brownies? How could I resist?
