So who are we?

and why are we so passionate

We are AVRA

AVRA comes from the Greek word meaning ‘aura,’ the atmosphere or quality that surrounds a person. No, we’re not a Greek company but we are inspired by the definition of the word. AVRA is defined by that quality and atmosphere of professionalism when we carry out our work.

You can come to expect it and we make sure our clients always benefit from it. Whether it is our communication, ideas, or presentation; it all stems from that quality and atmosphere that we always strive to offer.

I’m Paul, I lead the company and come from a filming background that always took a backseat until redundancy came calling in 2017.

Over the last two decades, I and my team have furnished ourselves with competence garnered from a passion for filmmaking and storytelling. Undertaking training in Adobe Creative Cloud as well as AVID’s Media Composer, we have invested time and funds to build a creative environment that takes advantage of the latest tech and software.

Working with marketing departments to provide training on creative tools for their teams, we have first-hand experience of how investment in video production can amplify any marketing strategy and we strive to both understand and deliver films that tell our client’s stories and push their marketing resources to the next level.

  • Getting Paul involved in our project was by far the best decision made by our company. The communication between us and AVRA during the project has been super easy and the quality of work produced by their team was definitely worth every penny. As a start up business we were on a tight budget to get things moving and Paul and his team were able to accomadate this and even save us money with their competitive pricing! I would greatly recommend AVRA to anyone! (via Google Reviews)

  • Working with Paul and the AVRA team was a truly seamless and very positive experience. Paul is thoroughly professional, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of his art and made the entire band (Dapper) feel perfectly at ease at every stage of the process. Paul explained what would be happening, outlined the expectations for each of us and then did exactly what he said he'd do. This meant that his presence at our love sessions and in the studio was completely non-intrusive and allowed the band to focus on what we do - playing the music and enjoying ourselves in a completely natural environment. Paul had great ideas of what he wanted to see, but he made sure that he sought the input and opinions of all of the band before hand, and built these into his own vision for our productions. The result is that now we have a portfolio of really professional live and studio videos that truly capture the essence of Dapper. We would recommend AVRA very highly to anyone looking for video promotion or production and they will be Dapper's first phone call for out next production. Thank you to Paul and the team for being the 6th member of the band for this! (via Google Reviews)

  • We were looking for a company that could market our products through video. Once we started dealing with Paul at AVRA we realised we had made the correct decision. Everything we asked for was done to the highest level. A very professionally run business with a massive difference to other companies in that their aftercare is second to none. If you're looking for a company that really cares then AVRA Communications is definitely one to contact. Thanks again Paul Phil Mint Eyewear (via Google Reviews)
