This time 7 years ago today I was sat at my laptop in London, sworn to secrecy as I edited the backstage footage from XFactor. Working my first month as a freelancer, little did I know that 7 years later I would be sat in a very different office in Peterborough working completely for myself, having survived 7 years as Ellen Jackson Videography!
It is 2018 and video is everywhere! YouTube is the second most popular search engine. 78% of people are watching online videos every week and 55% of people are watching videos online every day, according to HubSpot.
That is a lot of people!!
Cisco have predicted that by 2020 online videos will make up more than 80% of all consumers’ Internet traffic. Have I got your attention yet?

There comes a time in everyone’s life when we have to say goodbye to something we love.
For some it might be your first car, others it could be your family home…. but for me, it’s my first commercial camera!!
Now you might think this is a bit irrational, but this camera has been my rock. It has taught me new things, taken me to amazing places, and above all it has NEVER LET ME DOWN. There has never been so much as a corrupt file and it has always looked the part.
Yes it’s snowing, and some of you love it and some of you hate it, but I’m just one of those people that wants to be out there in it.

Is Vimeo all you need?
We all know how videos are becoming increasingly more popular. It’s all anyone talks about. Our timelines are full of social media videos, whether it’s videos of cats going viral or your favourite brand’s newest advert. Over 500 million people are watching video on Facebook every day (via Forbes). EVERDAY!! That is a huge audience just waiting to see your videos.
Here at Ellen Jackson Videography we love nothing better than a video which tells a compelling story, tugs on the heart strings and provokes a reaction in the viewer. In essence, one which successfully engages with its target audience. Guess what kind of video ticks all three boxes? Christmas TV adverts, that’s what!
