A HEARTWARMING video which tells the story of JF Hornby & Co has had its official premiere.

Hundreds of people tuned in to social media channels as the 90-second short film was shown for the first time.

It charts the dreams of a young man – and a familiar face to the team at JF Hornby – who wants to be an accountant when he leaves school.

Film crews spent a number of days capturing footage at various locations – including a classroom and a farmhouse kitchen – as part of the exciting project.

Managing Director for JF Hornby & Co, Paul Hornby, said: “I see so many promotional videos for businesses that sadly lack imagination. The brief to the company we engaged for this project was to tell the JF Hornby story in an imaginative and engaging way.

“I am so pleased with the results. Everything the business represents has been captured in 90 seconds and told in a way that really resonates.”

Familiar faces in the video include Joseph Hornby, Paul’s son, who is surrounded by classmates when he declares he wants to be an accountant when he grows up. Paul also features in the video alongside some of the firm’s long-standing clients.”
