My Bio

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.

In 2012 Lionel's sons Charles and Harry Fynn joined Plato Video and collaborated to develop the business and bring a new range of offerings including promotional video content for businesses & events. Wedding films are also part of the consumer offering with a range of packages and styles available.

In 2013 Charles & Harry became the event videographers for the hugely successful annual Bournemouth Air Festival and have covered many Tourism related projects and events for their home town since then.

The business looks forward to its continued growth in 2018 with a number of happy clients and achievements already under its belt.

My Business Tips

Don't go to networking events thinking that if you don't come away with business then it's a waste of time. We tend to find that networking is a long haul project, building relationships with regulars that attend. Be nice to people! Don't give them the hard sell.
