Our clients include:
JayEmm on Cars
James Martin is one of the most well-known automotive YouTubers in the UK, with a fast-growing audience of dedicated fans. His no-nonsense approach and the depth of information in his videos has proven popular, having recently surpassed the 300,000 subscriber mark.
Zany Media is currently editing interviews and car reviews for the channel, and there are plans for filming his personal cars at some point in the near future.
All About Annette
Annette Joseph is a photo stylist and author of ‘At the Table of La Fortezza’. As part of the launch of her cookbook, we were commissioned to film and edit a series of recipe videos from the book, combining the interesting cuisine of the Lunigiana region of Tuscany with her unscripted and hilarious presenting style.
Since working with Annette on the recipe videos, the channel has expanded to a wider range of topics, with particularly successful videos on Italian real estate building the channel audience.
Julie Montagu presented ‘An American Aristocrat’s Guide to Great Estates’ on Smithsonian Channel. After the untimely cancellation of the TV series, we decided to recreate the format for YouTube, ending up with an incredibly high production value documentary series.
Zany Media helped with research, filmed, edited and promoted every episode of the first two seasons on YouTube, and even directed some too.
We flew a drone for spectacular aerial footage. We sourced uplifting and moving music scores from a wide variety of stock music websites. We pulled out promotional materials from the footage, and provided sponsors with tailored content for use on their social media platforms.
Series 1 & 2 have now been licensed by Little Dot Studios for broadcast on the Real Royalty channel (part of the History Hit network) and is reaching a large new audience via their subscription service and 1m+ subscriber YouTube Channel.
Following the COVID-19 lockdowns of 2020 and 2021, running an historic house as a tourist attraction became incredibly challenging. In April 2020, Mapperton Estate began live-streaming tours of the house with the Earl and Countess of Sandwich. Zany Media provided invaluable expertise to ensure the smooth running of these live-streams with minimal resources and appalling rural internet connections!
The following year, a strategy was developed to build upon the success of these live streams, and Mapperton Live was born. Within 3 episodes, the investment paid off, and a video documenting the draining and cleaning of the 18th Century swimming pool went viral, hitting 1.6million views to date.
Zany Media played the integral part of the development of the channel, filming and editing all content, and suggesting content streams. Advertising revenue from the YouTube channel, as well as a popular Patreon account, means that a new income stream for the estate makes it easier to pay for the upkeep of the manor house.
Immersed in the world of YouTube, Zany Media has its own YouTube Channel – ‘Stephen and Claire – 2 Zany Brits’
We started filming our adventures on a road trip to Scotland in March 2022 and never looked back. Since then, we’ve documented alternative things to do in Pisa, the crazy Tar Barrels event at Ottery St Mary, Devon, and how to cook a traditional British roast dinner.
Our presenting style combines a passion for photography and videography, showcasing local sights and interests, as well as a zany onscreen banter.
