Minidipity is a strand of Mini Productions that was formed after the team were repeatedly approached by producers who felt the burden of having to source online marketing and social media management, yet knew how vital it was in selling their film or show. After being brought on to assist various projects, and realising they had a natural flare for this work, they officially launched Minidipity in 2015 and now regularly work one-to-one with other producers to offer support in the creation of their project and help it fulfil its maximum commercial and brand potential.

They expanded into corporate collaborations in early 2016, bringing creativity into business and producing content with a narrative and cinematic feel. Think of them as your ‘Mini Producers’ – there to help in all aspects of marketing and digital content including: graphics, photography, videography, social media management, production management, press launches and event coverage.

In 2016 they partnered with Jungle Creations to produce two online viral videos. Showcasing high-end production, tailored specifically for social media platforms. Jungle Creations boast a following of over 15 million on Facebook and receive over 1 billion views per month on their channels. The two virals received over 35 million views and led to The Mini’s developing as experts in this type of production as their viral credits grew and grew.

Most recently they have produced a viral for the alcoholic sweet brand Smith & Sinclair, which received over 1.7 million views in the first week and made over £7,000 for the International Planning Parenthood Federation selling Donald Trump shaped lollies as a protest to Donald Trump and the US withdrawing funding to the family planning charity. This lead to the company getting a huge amount of PR around the lolly production and donations soaring.

They have also provided production support to companies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and Academy Films. During this work they have helped produce online videos for brands such as ASDA, plus music videos for bands such as The Amazons and Fangclub. Plus they have assisted in social media management for BFI, LFF and Imperial College.

Previous Minidipity work also includes: company brand videos for Vogue UK, the leading suppliers of bathroom accessories and heated towel rails in the the UK and Matki, the UKs leading shower enclosure company. They also produced online content for the Moneybox App and DoubleClick by Google. A music video and BTS for emerging talent Mimsi, featuring well-known rappers Twissman and Starboi, to support her newly released song “24 (I’m Yours)” which hit number 12 in the urban music week chart during October 2016.  Social media for Scoop Films’ The Beat Beneath My Feet starring Luke Perry, Nicholas Galitzine and Lisa Dillon; Short Film Distribution for Queen’s Mile by Martin Delaney (Zero Dark Thirty, Now You See Me 2, Amar, Akbar & Tony) starring Emerald O’Hanrahan (The Archers) and Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones, Genesis); Social media management for Late Shift by Tobias Weber (Late Shift was the first feature-length production in the interactive movie format CtrlMovie); BTS interviews and a ‘How To’ recipe video for baker to the Royals, Fiona Cairns.

Mini Productions also implements all Minidipity work into it’s own projects for all behind-the-scenes and social media coverage.
