A video production agency based in Manchester

We’re Eight Engines. An innovative video production company in the heart of Manchester that lives to tell stories.

Originally founded as a TV production company producing award-winning TV dramas for the BBC, from 2017 we began expanding into the marketing world, producing content for clients ranging from huge household names through to SMEs, always bringing the same commitment to quality and world-class storytelling.

Today Eight Engines is a multi-disciplinary agency, creating attention-grabbing TV adverts, jaw-dropping digital campaigns, world-class live streams, award-winning broadcast television, and show-stopping event films.

We like to think we’re Manchester’s leading video production company and our growing client list agrees. We’d love you to join them.

What makes us different?

Making world-class video production affordable

Our background is in producing award-winning TV and films and we have an impressive track record. Our broadcast projects have won three Royal Television Society Awards, been nominated for Broadcast Awards and seen our films open festivals around the world.

Our reputation within the world of TV is for producing world class content for a fraction of traditional TV budgets. We keep this ethos of producing top quality, affordable filmmaking for every project we’re involved in.  

We use the same team as our broadcast projects on everything we produce, so you’re guaranteed the same degree of vision and level of expertise as is featured in our flagship work.

Maximising the impact of your investment

It's all well and good producing a beautiful film, but if it sits on YouTube and only gets 200 views it isn’t functioning as a great tool for your organisation.

For every project we produce we work with you to outline how to maximise the investment you have made. We can work with you to analyse your online presence and create a video strategy to ensure your film gets seen by as many people as possible. Visibility and accessibility are a key part of the Eight Engines approach.

A strong focus on value for money

We don’t look at our work as simply producing a video, we look at it as producing a complete video campaign. We want to come away from a project with a main video and several smaller pieces of video content that can be used as part of a campaign to drive traffic to your film and further maximise its impact. The best part about this is we can do it alongside filming a core video so there are no steep cost increases.
