Chichester filmmaker relaunches business after 'massive' success thanks to community
A Chichester filmmaker has expanded and relaunched his business after seeing 'impressive' growth.
Ranald Lloyd-Williams, from Chichester, has gone from a one-man band to now having a team of six working with him through his filmmaking business.
The 27-year-old, who started making videos at ten years old, launched his solo business, RLW Film six years ago.
Since then, he has grown the firm enough to build an extended team of young, local creatives.
Ranald is taking the business to the next level and has relaunched and rebranded to create Feel Good Films.
Since starting out, he has taken his work around the world with him, having worked in Bangladesh, Germany, France and more countries around Europe.
He also works a lot with summer camps in America.
Last year, he gave up his time to produce a film for 20 local businesses, highlighting the work they were doing throughout the pandemic.
also, we gained quite a few clients off the back of the project.
"While that definitely wasn’t why we made the film, it was a great win and just goes to show how collaborative the Chichester community is and how much everyone is willing to support
each other – it’s really impressive.
"When the first lockdown hit, all of our work stopped, and we had around six weeks to decide what the future looked like for us. I had been thinking about a rebrand and levelling-up the business for a while, but always delayed it. If Covid has taught me anything, it’s that there is no time like the present.
"I’m really glad to be able to work with young creatives from the local area too, it’s amazing to be able to provide work for people of a similar age to me, with such amazing talent."
The company specialises in film production for businesses, organisations and individuals through emotional storytelling within the outdoor adventure, luxury lifestyle, experiential and education spaces.
Ranald said: "We align ourselves with organisations who see themselves within our business values. With a business called Feel Good Films, we like to align with organisations and businesses who are doing the same thing. I think what we all need in this world off the back of Covid is a lot of feel-good content."
It has recently partnered with a New York-based marketing agency, Craze Management, as part of its work with summer camps in America.
