Everyone says they’re good at what they do
That’s marketing 101. So don’t just take our word for it.
Here’s what our clients have to say about us:
We recently worked with Mark on our first video case study and are very pleased we decided to go with Sparky Films. Mark is very professional, responsive, creative and conscientious, as well as approachable and friendly, and we plan to film more studies with him for our business!
Karen Lang – ICI Connect Ltd – May 2021
In a world of fake news, mis-information and paid endorsement, my invitation to anyone reading this is to absorb the recommendations surrounding my own. Every word sincere, experience based and earned. I can vouch for that, having seen Sparky sprinkle his creative flair over shared client work for over 10yrs. Give him a call. I suspect you’ll be penning your own testimonial some time soon.
Andy Sutherden – International Head of Brand Consulting, Creative Artists Agency – March 2020
I manage our company’s corporate events and have worked with several videographers and production crews and Mark really blew me away! He is definitely a master of his art. He captured some amazing highlights of our conference and was everywhere at all times working in the background. He was great with our customers and captured some amazing interviews and testimonials. He conducted customer interviews and some of our executives and created some excellent highlight reels for our event. Our customers felt incredibly at ease with Mark. He came to the table with great ideas and was quick and proficient. Mark quickly became part of our team and I look forward to working with him on many more projects. He is a true joy to work with!
Sharon Summers – Director, Global Events, CPA GLOBAL LTD – March 2020
I have worked with Sparky Film to produce a variety of videos for HSBC’s social media channels and PR work. Trends in social video change rapidly but Sparky Film is able to master new styles, delivering top quality work in a variety of formats from 30 second compilation clips to long form interviews that have gone on to receive millions of views and drive PR coverage in global publications. Sparky Film receive briefs well and are quick to contribute with builds or considerations that can help improve the content, editing with speed to turn the content around rapidly. I would highly recommend Sparky Film to brands creating content that grabs the attention of their customers.
Paul James – Campaign Director, Hill + Knowlton Strategies
The All England Club has worked with Sparky Film on the Road to Wimbledon India programme for the past 2 years. We can always trust Sparky Film to create films that are of a high quality, innovative, fun, and completely fit our brief. Sparky’s energy onsite is contagious and they are a key part of our team.
I look forward to working with them again in the near future.
Emma Lerwill – Marketing Executive – All England Tennis Club
Mark and team at Sparky Film are flexible and efficient, a pleasure to work with and the final product is always excellent. It’s been a real pleasure working with Sparky in recent months and I look forward to many more projects in the future.
Gill Lindsay Donnelly – Global Digital and Marketing Operations Director, CPA Global – May 2019
Working with Sparky Film is a complete pleasure. Their founder Mark McCarthy is incredibly talented and is able to digest the required outcomes from any commission and deliver them with speed and creativity. We are so lucky to have found them. They also has real empathy with our vision and the work we seeking to do for vulnerable young people.
Richard Garrett – CEO BECSLink and The Tim Henman Foundation
This was the Wimbledon Foundation’s first experience of working with SPARKY FILM and we were delighted with the results. They not only understood our brief but offered their own creative ideas and within a short space of time produced a series of high-quality films that perfectly captured the essence of what we do. It was a pleasure working with SPARKY FILM and we look forward to working with them again.
Rachel Swithinbank – Wimbledon Foundation
HSBC has worked with SPARKY FILM for over a decade to provide videographic services for our global sponsorship portfolio. Quite simply, they are considered a vital part of our sponsorship team. Their, quality of footage, creative editing and montage development and sheer work output is simply outstanding.
Giles Morgan – Group Head of Sponsorship, HSBC Holdings plc
Ricoh started to work with SPARKY FILM back in 2007, when it was commissioned to produce a dedicated sponsor film for the 2007 Ricoh Women’s British Open. Since then we have continued to and increased our work with SPARKY FILM, on not only the above mentioned tournaments but also on a range of other corporate filming requirements, which included corporate HR filming, case studies, tradeshows and other sponsored events.
Not only have we found that SPARKY FILM delivers a product/service of a very high quality, but also during those years they have demonstrated quick turn around and a flexible approach to meet our expectations. I would therefore have no reservations in recommending SPARKY FILM.
Bart Somsen – Brand Strategy Manager, Ricoh Europe PLC
I have worked with Mark McCarthy and SparkyFilm for over 20 years. His skills, experience of working with people, filming, editing and producing are outstanding. Personally, I have used Mark on many occasions including for work with my Charity Foundation and he has always delivered excellent work. I would be very happy recommending Mark McCarthy and SparkyFilm
Tim Henman, OBE – March 2020
IMG have appointed SPARKY FILM to work with us on a number of projects over the past 4-5 years and on every occasion they have delivered on time and exceeded our expectations. SPARKY FILM are able to understand and interpret a clients brief, offer creative ideas to enhance the final project and deliver to the very highest quality.
I have no hesitation in recommending SPARKY FILM Ltd.
Ross Hallett – Vice President, IMG Golf Division
Mark McCarthy, head SPARKY FILM Ltd is a talented, creative and professional master of his craft – in four years working together at HSBC golf tournaments all over the world he has consistently produced high quality work, on brief, on brand and on time. He’s a proper team player and does everything with a smile on his face. One day I’ll beat him at table tennis!
Steve Bradley – Director, Hill+Knowlton Strategies
The most useful extra support to us has been the short promotional video made by the Wimbledon Foundation with SPARKY FILM about our project. We were thrilled with the result, and it is something we would have found extremely difficult to do on our own. So difficult in fact that we may not have made such a video and almost certainly not one of this quality. The Wimbledon Foundation team managed to communicate a great deal about our work in a very short time with this video, and the impact of that for our profile with other stakeholders is very valuable indeed.
We’re all about relationships. Most of our clients have been with us for years and keep coming back for more.
