Bondholders build the Future together

Bondholder, video production and video marketing agency Future Proof Films has launched its brand new website, courtesy of fellow Bondholder creatives Frogspark
The new visually-led website will help boost Future Proof Films’ online presence, as well as showcase the video specialist’s growing client list, latest work and new Visual Marketing Subscription service.

The two Bondholders have teamed up several times over the years, supporting one another’s growth and progression within the city.

With video being at the centre of Future Proof Films’ business, it was essential for its new website to focus on video, whilst not compromising on loading times and keeping the design simple to navigate. Frogspark picked up the challenge and designed, developed and delivered a clean, crisp website that doesn’t just focus on video, it puts video first. The shiny new site is now the perfect online shop window for generating more leads for Future Proof Films as it continues to grow.

The website also sees the launch of a new service; the Visual Marketing Subscription service which arms companies with a wealth of visual content to strengthen or form their next marketing campaign. 

Drew Taylour-Davis, Director at Future Proof Films said: “Our new Visual Marketing Subscription service will help more and more companies take advantage of the power of visual content marketing, whilst negating unexpected marketing costs and the need for costly in-house production solutions.
"Frogspark have done an exceptional job in creating a website that will push our company even further and be pivotal in the growth of our business. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Frogspark for anyone looking for a bespoke website.”

Scott Clarke, Operations Manager at Frogspark Ltd also commented on the project: “Our key ambition whilst designing and developing this website was to ensure that it showcased the fantastic video work Future Proof Films have already created.
"It's always nice to work with other businesses locally to be able to develop and design a website that is very unique and specific to their brand; we hope this website delivers exactly that.”

Bondholders on the Road


Bondholders Driven Media and Future Proof Films have teamed up to put an end to that age old question; how many people will see a truck advert during a normal day? And how long do people really spend looking at the rear?

Armed with several truck-mounted cameras and a shiny new truck advertising campaign, designed by Bondholder graphic design agency Black Apricot, Driven Media and Future Proof Films will be filming thousands of drivers and passengers to calculate the advert’s impressions and driver dwell time of the rear panel.

After filming on the M1 and M25 over a single day, the Bondholder duo will be counting each and every commuter they’ve captured to form a comprehensive and informative vlog on their findings.

The unique use of multiple mounted cameras, specifically designed to capture every passing driver and passenger, will provide invaluable data to Driven Media for their future marketing campaigns.
