Green screen training videos with the UK’s top pharmacy trainer.

One of the big advantage’s of an SME is that it is smaller, with more personal service, and as such potentially more trustworthy for a customer.

Using real people in a corporate video means it will be more personal and different from your competition, and that’s one of the keys to making a better video. It’s not difficult! Doing so isn’t difficult.  While…
