View Some of our School Promotionals

At MCN Productions we are always looking for new, exciting ways to help promote your school. We can produce a ‘standalone’ school promotional video to sit on the home page of your website; we can produce bite-sized ‘focus’ videos which highlight a particular department or a specific aspect of school life such as Sport, the Creative Arts or Pastoral Care; we can film a school events such as a Musical Production or Sports Day.

Home Page Video

Here’s an example of a school promotional video. The film, which includes drone footage, is underpinned with a number of talking head interviews.  Everything was shot in just one day.

Focus Video

This is an example of one of our bite-sized ‘focus’ videos. In addition to the main promotional video for MatNatSci, we shot 12 short subject videos for the school. Everything was filmed in 2 days.

Open Day & School Tour Video

Not all parents are able to visit your school to experience it in person. While nothing can replace that, video is the next best thing. Here’s an example of a ‘tour’ video.

Event Video

We were commissioned to film Hurst Prep’s production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ which we did with 5 separate cameras.  Here’s a ‘behind the scenes’ video which gives a flavour of the production.


Years of Educational Experience


Videos made with Educational Establishments


Years making School Promotional Films

We combine a unique blend of

knowledge of the education system

with feature film quality cinematography.

We believe we’re different. Our director, Mike Carter, has a vast background in Education as well as in Film and Theatre. He was a teacher of English and Drama for over 20 years before becoming a freelance Producer, Writer and Director. He has been responsible for over 2,000 individual Professional Theatrical Productions and has written and directed 2 major feature films.

Mike brings with him a crew of highly skilled award-winning, feature film individuals. Our combined knowledge of education and narrative film making puts us in a unique position; we understand the messages you want to portray and the stories you want to tell, and we know how to tell them. A promotional video must have a purpose — it must take its audience on a journey and it must excite them.


Unlike most promotional companies, we come from a feature film background. We use the same state of the art RED Komodo Camera as we would do if we where making a feature film. This produces incredible 6K footage (that’s more than 9x the pixels of HD). We use a highly experienced production team to complete your video and treat all promotional films as we would a feature film.

Ready for Change

We’re here for the long run. As your school grows and develops, so can your video. We secure and save all the footage we shoot (unless you ask us to delete it). If you want to change your video, or add to it, or replace a clip with a new event, then we can do that for you without having to re-shoot the entire thing – so your video stays up-to-date and your costs are kept to a minimum.


At MCN Productions we have the experience to deliver videos and films for use in Cinema, on BluRay and for web, so we’ll make sure that your video looks great wherever you decide to show it. We’ll ensure that you’re provided with everything you need to upload the film to your website or display it in your school.

Efficient & Competitive

Our team is built on experience and we are able to maximise our efficiency whilst retaining an incredible level of quality. This means that we are able to be highly competitive when it comes to price. But we never compromise on quality. Tell us what you want to achieve within your budget; you’ll find us significantly cheaper than the vast majority of corporate video companies.

Don't just take our word for it.

Truly inspirational!
