Jim Coulson - Yorkshire Content Writer, Radio Presenter and Video Maker

Video is the future of content and your business needs to embrace it to stay ahead of the game. I can create a fun and engaging bespoke one-off video or series of vlogs that you can share with your fans and followers on social media.

By 2019, it is predicted that 80 percent of online content will be video-based and it is the perfect way to talk directly to your potential customers. As the old adage goes, don’t tell people what to do; show them.

Here are some examples of my video work:

Dubai Parks and Resorts 2018

I was very excited to be asked to film a collection of vlogs showing off the theme parks and hotel at Dubai Parks and Resorts. There are also films of the city itself and an amazing desert safari I went on too. Take a look and some of the clips from that trip:

IGTV Videos

IGTV is Instagram’s video app. I have a channel under my own name and one for my Bewildered Dad blog. These videos are shot in portrait mode, unusually, which adds extra challenges that I really enjoy trying to overcome. Take a look at my blog about IGTV, which will become a valuable way to talk to your customers. Contact me to talk about creating your own IGTV channel.

Festival of Vintage 2018

I was asked to present and produce three videos during the first day of the Festival of Vintage at York Racecourse. The idea was to show different aspects of the event and entice people to come on the second day. Here are the finished products.

Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire

I created a series of videos detailing exactly why Yorkshire is the perfect place for days out with the kids. This was a passion project and the ideal way to express my love of the county, whilst also getting to spend quality time with my daughter.

The series led to a collaboration with the I’m From Yorkshire Facebook group, who now sponsor the videos and fund the creation of new episodes.

Tot Gear

This was a fun spoof of Top Gear, imagining what it would be like if they reviewed the cars that families really drove, including my Skoda Octavia, which was on the verge of ticking over 200,000 miles at the time of recording.

Dad Network TV

I am a proud member of a dad vlogging group attached to The Dad Network website. Featuring fathers from across the country, the Dad Network TV creates original content and works with national brands to deliver effective social media campaigns.

This involves showcasing the often under-represented point of view of dads on all things parenting-related.
