Ensuring your TV or cinema advert is cleared for broadcast
To get your advert cleared for TV or cinema you need to ensure that you’re working within the guidelines as set by the UK Code of Broadcast Advertising, so it’s vital that you choose a commercial video production company with the right experience and ‘know-how’.
We work closely with Clearcast and the Cinema Advertising Agency throughout all stages of production; beginning with your draft script, right through to your final output. It’s imperative that no stone is left unturned, as even the pixel height of your onscreen text is enough to set a delay in a scheduled broadcast date.
At Slate and Mortar, we’ve cleared adverts for ITV, Channel 4, Sky and many more satellite channels, so we understand each and every potential concern that needs to be considered. Our clearance and compliance specialists will ensure that your creativity and hard work can be seen by the biggest possible audience across the UK’s TV and cinema screens.

If your video content is for a multi-national audience, Slate and Mortar offer a full translation voice-over and subtitling service, meaning your project can reach its widest possible audience. Included within this is a full transcription of the original audio, which can then be utilised for any further translations.
All copy is proof-read and signed off by a native speaker before it is recorded, to ensure there is no mis-interpretation of the original text.
If you would like to discuss how your project can be adapted to reach a wider audience get in touch.
If you’re looking for a voice-over to introduce your product to a wider multi-national audience, Slate and Mortar provide a range of voice over artists who will ensure you get broadcast quality results every time.
We’ll work with you to choose the right artist to suit your needs; including unique accents and multilingual artists… or if you want to roll your sleeves up and get involved yourself, Slate and Mortar can even provide on-site mobile voice-over recording, meaning that we can record you or your team member at a location of your choosing.
If you would like to speak to us about our voice-over services, please get in touch.
Slate and Mortar produce scripts for a huge range of creative products, from promotional films, corporate videos, sport’s documentaries, live-events, animations and even full podcast series.
We have in-house copywriters and scriptwriters as well as a network of talented specialist journalists to cover every subject. We understand how tricky it can be to create a script, so our writer will be with you from the very start; they’ll do preliminary research, conduct telephone interviews to dig deeper into the subject area and develop an outline that they’ll then use to develop a script tailored specifically to your target audience… meaning that your messages hit home every time.
So if you need a script that’s light on technical jargon, or just want a script that will inject a bit of humour into your explainer video, get in touch today.
Telling a story that will capture your audience's attention is key to any successful video project, and at Slate and Mortar we understand how important it is to do this in a unique, engaging and contemporary manner.
The edit process is where the story takes shape; where the audience is hooked and where powerful messages can be shared.
And we think it’s also the most fun part of the production process! Slate and Mortar has Apple accredited in-house editors on staff who have vast experience of producing dynamic, engaging edits for TV, cinema and online commercials.
From talking head commercial videos, through to award-winning documentaries; Slate and Mortar’s editors can work independently or with you, on-site to cater to all your editorial needs. We’ve even been known to turn around fully realised edits within 24hours! We utilise the latest editing software and pride ourselves on keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in editing practise.
All our edits are professionally mastered with full colour-correction, colour grade and audio dubbing, and as part of our package, we always include up to six short social media edits suitable for publishing on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter or TikTok. So if you need an onsite or offsite editor, we’d love to hear from you.
