ebay has long been a pioneer in online sales. It may have begun selling second-hand items, but now it helps grow a wealth of businesses. We unearthed some of these stories to commit to case study films.

ebay approached London-based Lambda Films to create a video case study series that explored small businesses and their stories of growth. We were given the opportunity to select the businesses ourselves. Therefore, we chose from a number of interesting, and niche, industries.

We selected Thorne Beekeeping because of their long history, and growing importance in the world today. Thankfully, we were lucky enough to work with Rebecca Coleman, the Great Grand-Daughter of Thorne Founder, Edgar Henry Thorne. Combined with our footage of Thorne’s bee-keeping and hive building expertise, Rebecca told us how the company had grown – thanks to ebay.

The resulting case study video is a small, intimate snapshot of the family business.
