Animal Friends Insurance

Chris Newham
Marketing Manager, Animal Friends Insurance

Each time we've commissioned Happy Hour to produce a new TV advert, even at the last minute, they've gone that one step further to deliver some truly stunning creative. As our brand has evolved, so has the identity through their animation and design."

Enercon Industries

Daniel Hughes
Marketing Manager, Enercon Industries

We decided to work with Happy Hour predominantly because of the quality of their work. After meeting with the team we felt they clearly understand what we were trying to achieve and that they would be able to deliver it in an exciting and innovative way. From the start the Happy Hour team looked at the project with completely fresh eyes and helped transform what could have been a dull, technical corporate video into an absolutely stunning piece of promotional film. We'd have no hesitation in recommending Happy Hour to other companies looking for corporate videos or other promotional videos. Working with them has been a great experience. The final film was beyond anything we had envisioned and the reaction we've had from customers has been even better.

You approached our commercial with a fresh eye, and production quality was of a very high standard. You provided a stress free experience, and a great atmosphere throughout the production. Itís great to see people who are so enthusiastic about their work and we look forward to working with you again!

The Happy Hour team excels at developing ads that drive response. From brand strategy, to creative concepting, to post-production execution, the team constantly asks, "what will create the most volume for the business?" As a result, we've seen a 48% increase in direct response website visits since launching our campaign! This improvement is despite a high frequency media buying strategy, which could easily lead to creative tire. Thanks to Happy Hour's experience, we have maximized our TV spend and created an effective campaign to drive our business forward.

Not only does the team at Happy Hour excel at driving quality direct response adverts, they're wizards at navigating new campaigns through tough regulatory marketplaces. Concepts and scripts are crafted with much care, ensuring all interpretations are within UK regulation and risk of complaint is minimized. The team have also developed a great working relationship with Clearcast - a must when getting all the hard work through to production!

Anana

Siobhan Doherty
Marketing Manager, Anana Ltd

We came across Happy Hour Productions when we were searching for a film production company online. We thought that the Happy Hour website was quite impressive so gave them a call, as we did a few other companies. As soon as we spoke to Tom at Happy Hour we had a good feeling. It seemed like a flexible, innovative and helpful team.

We were on a tight deadline and upon engaging Happy Hour and made recommendations in order to save us time and money. We were in constant communication and dealt with the same few people from the HH team all the way through which we really appreciated; we know that we werenít the easiest of customers! It felt like Tiggy and Tom really took ownership of our project and genuinely wanted it to be a success as much as we did.

The final product is absolutely perfect for its purpose (we are entering it in to a product led competition at a conference we are attending.) Itís more creative and funny than any promotional film we have had made in the past. Despite the fact that itís a promotional video for a technical product itís really engaging, light hearted and funny!

Deputy Head, Lawdale School, Tower Hamlets

Happy Hour did an amazing job! I wouldn't think twice about using them again. They were great at talking us through the whole process and answering any questions on the production of our education video. The video was just what we needed, delivered by a really nice bunch of people!

California Shutters

Murray Clark
Director, California Shutters

From the get go, we knew we'd made the right choice by selecting Happy Hour to handle the creative for our first foray into TV. The entire team have been supportive and patient throughout and nothing has been a problem when we've looked to gain better understanding or changed direction with our creative desires. Weíre thrilled with the end result which has surpassed our expectations at the start of the project.

Claire Hoffman
Marketing Associate, QuickQuid

The team at HappyHour could not have been more helpful throughout the development of QuickQuid's new TV campaign. Every piece of the process - from the branding and strategy work to creative design and media production - was extremely well-managed, conceptually unique and of the highest quality. The success of this campaign would not have been possible without Happy Hour's contributions.

Howard Kimberley
Chief Executive, Shimtech Industries Ltd

We have used Tom and the team at Happy Hour on many occasions. Whilst there are doubtless many fine creative production companies around, we have found Happy Hour's combination of responsiveness, all-round professionalism, technical wizardry and unerring ability to deliver a highly polished, yet cost effective product, on time, every time, unbeatable. That is why we will look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

Alasdair Glen
Direct Marketing Project Manager, Macmillan Cancer Support

Working with Happy Hour was a great experience. They understood that working on Charity DRTV meant trying to be cost effective, not just keeping costs down.

Tom and his team went the extra mile to make sure that we got the end result we were looking for.

I hadn't had a great deal of experience with DRTV at the time, but Happy Hour made sure that I was involved throughout pre-production, shooting and editing and could make the important decisions to get the most out of the campaign.

Gita Luz
Fundraising Manager, British Red Cross

Happy Hour are great to work with, very professional and proactive in their approach to working, offering up good ideas and solutions on how to achieve our project goals.

Alice Lee
Senior Marketing Manager, Pounds to Pocket

Tom and his team have helped us on a number of different projects and have been fantastic every step of the way! Their seamless management of everything from initial creative concept discussions all the way through to shooting and putting our ads on air has been instrumental in the success of our DRTV campaign!

Mark Lucius
Marketing Director, Park Group Plc

Weíve worked with Happy Hour for many years, to deliver our DRTV creative and production. Happy Hour works closely with us to fully understand our proposition and requirements, which has helped them to produce some of our best performing DRTV ads.

Happy Hour is a great team to work with. They continue to impress us with their creativity and production expertise, as well as their flexibility and dedication to meet our (sometimes tight) deadlines. They have a wealth of experience across animation and film production, which allows them to easily switch techniques and provide fresh approaches for each of our campaigns.

We look forward to working with Happy Hour into the future and would recommend them to anyone looking for effective and professional DRTV production services.
