Slanted Media Group all set for Action
A TALENTED and highly experienced videographer is gearing up to take his business to the next level – after just 12 months of launching.
In May 2022, Tom Ratcliffe set off on his own business journey with Tom Ratcliffe Media following three years of working within the industry elsewhere.
With an aim to develop a high-end video production company, the business has now completely gone through a whole rebrand, welcomed a new production assistant and set up a new studio at the Carlton House base in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
The exciting – and now called – Slanted Media Group – are producing inspirational video production for commercial corporate promotional content, social media and are soon to deliver online educational training sessions.
An eye on producing content for large conferences and promotional content for sports stars is also set in plans for the near future.
“I have always wanted to work in the media production industry and after previously working for another firm elsewhere, I decided to go on my own and follow a dream I had always had, said Tom.
“We have been working with local businesses for some time now producing a wide range of video content and now I am really excited to be moving forward with the newly rebranded Slanted – which was done following working with another local business – Dumb Agency, of Keele.
“The brand really encapsulates our ethos, drive and commitment to providing real high-quality video content and also creating content which really tells others stories in the most creative of ways.”
Production Assistant Eduard Caklais joined Tom’s budding empire during the summer of 2023. The two had first met at Staffordshire University and had remained in touch ever since.
Tom said: “I had come to a point in the business where I knew I needed more help and it was a natural step to welcome Eduard.
“We got to know each other at University where I completed my Media Film Production degree in 2020, and now we are working together at Slanted – which is great.”
To celebrate the next phase of the 25-year-olds business aims, an evening event is taking place on Thursday 28 September, at The Carlton, which sits adjacent to Tom’s office and studio.
More than 100 local businesses have already registered along with members of the community. Several local dignitaries have also confirmed their attendance and will not only be the first to see the rebranded ‘Slanted’ website, but will also be privy to an in-depth insight into professional video production services.
Tom adds: “We are really looking forward to the launch event and we cannot believe the response we have had so far – it’s going to be a really fun night of networking and helping to create collaborations for all those who attend – and what better place than The Carlton, which is lovely venue and cafe bar.”
