Company History

Next Scene Films is a film production company that was created in Sheffield in November 2009. I am Matt Crofts, the Managing Director of Next Scene Films. I graduated Sheffield Hallam University in 2008, after this I started the company with help from the Hatchery (Sheffield Hallam University centre for supporting new business). In 2012 I moved to Edinburgh and since then I have used both Sheffield & Edinburgh as bases for the company. In 2015 we expanded from only corporate films to enter the wedding film industry with great success including two top five best videographer in Scotland nominations in the Confetti Awards (2016 & 2017). We also create short films & write scripts via the production side of our company, we have had films on SKY TV short film channel, on BBC Big Screens, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and several scripts in festival finals.


Over the years we have specialised in creating informative, inspirational & entertaining promotional films for organisations such as Standard Life, Sheffield International Venues & The English Institute of Sport just to name a few. We have also filmed for Asda & Yorkshire Water. We also have strong experience in the education sector working with Sheffield Hallam University & Sheffield University, as well as many schools across the country. As well as working with major corporations we also enjoy creating films for many local companies such as Kingsknowe Golf Club, Nanyang Restaurant & Broomhouse Health Strategy Group in Edinburgh & several small businesses in the Yorkshire & Lothian Area’s. We also filmed high level entertainment acts such as One Direction & Def Leppard, as well as sport stars such as David Hirst (ex Sheffield Wednesday), Rhona Martin (Olympic Gold medalist) & many more.

In April 2016 we chose The Born Free Foundation as our charity partner, we donate 5% of our profits to them each year and also run campaigns throughout the year to raise a little extra money for the great work they do. Please feel free to browse their website at to find about what they do and support them. Since April 2017 for every project we are hired to create a film for (corporate or wedding) we will plant a tree somewhere in the world. We have a strong environmental theme here at Next Scene Films, we think differently, we believe that whilst creating films we should help protect the planet. Business has an important part to play in the world. Click here to read more.

As well as the corporate side of Next Scene Films, we also offer a wedding film service & we create our own short films and scripts on our productions website.

We love to create films, we share our passion of film making & story telling to create a promotional film that you will be proud of. To start a project with us contact us
