Some questions & answers about Toast
What sort of video production work can you handle?
Toast can handle a variety of video productions including large corporate films, talking heads, company or product promotional videos and explainer videos. We have specialist knowledge in the healthcare and financial services sectors.
Why choose Toast?
Toast prides ourselves on efficient and top quality client services, much of our work is repeat business. We work hard to make sure our clients are happy and would recommend us to others.
What sets Toast apart from other video production companies?
As Toast are both a video production agency and a TV commercials company we have good working relationships with many of the top TV commercials directors in the UK. We use these commercials directors on our video production projects. Often involving someone with a commercials sensibility adds an extra flair to a production. Obviously some jobs don’t require a top-flight director, we always tailor our response to our clients needs and we don’t use waxed moustached, bobble hat wearing prima-donna directors, they’re generally hard work to deal with.
Who have you worked with previously?
Toast have worked with all sorts of companies from well known names such as Morgan Stanley, Cancer Research UK, Ancestry, Innocent Drinks, The Bank of England but we’ve also done some great projects for lesser known companies like Algomi a specialist bond trading platform, CyberArk a security software company, KEF Audio a specialist HiFi company and Orocobre a lithium mining company. We’re always very willing to get on the phone and talk through a project.
How long does it take to make a video?
Like naming a price, deciding how long a project will take to deliver is always based on the content involved. A simple one day shoot and basic edit can be turned around in a couple of weeks, a one minute animated explainer might take about 3 weeks as work in progress and feedback need to be factored in. If you have a project in mind send over an email, we can usually give you a rough estimate on production timelines the same day.
Can Toast write a script for me?
Yes we have access to script writers who specialise in writing for screen. We always make sure our writers are correct for the project, there’s no point asking a comedy writer to describe the sell side bond market conversely financial writers aren’t always the best at gags.
How much will the video cost?
See the how long does it take answer. If you have a rough idea of your production needs send them over in an email we’ll be able to give you a ballpark budget.
Does Toast only work in the UK?
Toast has many clients around the world from an entrepreneur in Singapore with a medical burns reduction business to the Economic Development Board of The Kingdom of Bahrain.
How do you work with clients?
We’re always very transparent with clients both in terms of pricing and timeline. At the beginning of a project one of our producers will put together a production schedule listing all the major milestones involved in a production and a detailed budget which breaks down how much each area of the production will cost. We stick to these timelines and budgets and will only ever ask for more time or money if anything major has changed with the production requirements. We involve clients in any video shoots to make sure we’re capturing what’s needed. During any animation or editing we show work in progress to our clients and make changes based on feedback received.
What size of companies does Toast deal with?
We deal with all sizes of company, many of our clients are startup’s so we have experience of dealing with small but fast growing companies.
Is Toast expensive?
We’re not cheap and there is a quality level we don’t work below but because we have no parent company or cost centre structures to deal with we always go the extra mile for our clients. Getting repeat business saves us a fortune in sales and marketing so we invest in doing the best job we can.
Who will I deal with at Toast?
Each project has a dedicated producer who you’ll deal with throughout the project. It’s the producers job to communicate clearly at every stage of the project so everything runs smoothly.
“Toast produced very high quality films and managed the production process in Bahrain extremely efficiently. Their contribution to the creative process, the editing process and the development of cut down films was of the highest quality.”
Michael Baulk, Consultant – Bahrain Economic Development Board & Chairman, The Mill.

Product Videos & Branded Content
What video does best is tell a story, video can bring any product film to life. We can produce stand-out films to showcase any product and bring it to market in a big way. First impressions count in any online content.
