Plato Video, based in Bournemouth provides professional and audio services for individual and business needs
Plato Video is a family run business, founded in 1960 by Lionel Fynn of Bournemouth under the original title of Action Films, which specialised in capturing weddings, sports events and indeed, anything full of action!
By 1970 Action Films changed its name to Plato Tapes and won a number of major contracts for the supply of educational cassette tapes on legal and commercial subjects. When video became more commonplace with the widely accessible VHS and VCR, Plato Tapes became Plato Video.
Today in 2015, Plato Video is still run by Lionel and now with his two sons, Charles and Harry.
Charles graduated from Bournemouth University in 2008 with a degree in Marketing and then worked until 2012 at national tenpin bowling company, Bowlplex Ltd, as their Marketing Executive. Harry meanwhile studied film production at Winchester University, graduating in 2011 when he then joined Plato Video.
By combining their knowledge and experience, the brothers have diversified the business with fresh ideas and creative thinking. As a result Plato Video now offer a professional film production service and over the last year have produced promotional videos for local businesses looking to join the ever-growing popularity of YouTube.
Over the course of 2015 the company looks forward to a variety of upcoming projects including further corporate and event productions, as well as a number of wedding films, some of which will be captured on classic Super 8 film – a unique method of filmmaking only offered by a handfull of wedding videographers in the UK.
