  2. Bathgate BID

    As one of the first BIDs Bathgate is an excellent example of what can be achieved. This film shows the physical and economic transformation of the town and was used to communicate with key stake-holders and businesses.

    "A great production and triumphant end to what has been an exciting and rewarding filming process. You have certainly helped to show what is great about Bathgate and the BID."
    Nairn Pearson, BID & Town Centre Manager

  3. Linlithgow BID

    "I had not considered producing a film as part of my marketing plan, then I was made aware of Alan's work through my colleagues at Enterprising Bathgate. I am impressed by how he managed to explain the concept of a BID and how extremely professional looking the finished product was. From the moment I first contacted Alan, I have found that he is prepared to go above and beyond in order to make sure we get the film we need. The price we agreed was very fair for the quality of his work and I will certainly be working with him on our future marketing projects."

    Linlithgow BID co-ordinator & Town Centre Officer Economic Development
