Video production and creative content:
Our video production and videography filming services are easy to commission, whether you’re a seasoned pro or if you’re trying to produce video for the first time. We take the time to understand your requirements: looking first at what your video needs to achieve and how it’s going to be used.
We’ll advise how to spend the budget that’s available to you and do our best to squeeze every pixel of value out of it.
It’s all about partnership and collaboration, you see 🙂
As a team, we’re adept at video for promoting brands, producing content for social media, hero videos for crowdfunding campaigns, event coverage, internal communications and for social advertising. Our flexibility and experience means that we can adapt ourselves to any challenge.
We film in 4k as standard for great detail and quality.
We’ve tried to make the commissioning process as easy and digestible as possible. We’ll discuss your brief in detail prior to filming which will allow us to understand the full scope of what you’re trying to achieve. We can either quote from the ground-up or work to a pre-set budget – we know everyone will have different spending requirements and limitations, and we do our best to accommodate.
Once we know what we need to deliver, we’ll finalise the creative approach with you, organise the dates and capture your footage. The edit process almost always takes longer than production, so we’ll allow for multiple days of work to include time for review and changes. We’ll deliver digital online viewing copies in the run-up to sign-off, but you’re also welcome to join us if you’d rather edit in person.
The beauty of working with video is the options available, and we can usually scale up or down to find the best quality and budget fit.
In case you wanted to know, we shoot using the latest Sony cameras, from the A7s series. They use some of the latest imaging technology, meaning that they produce exceptional images and respond better than most in challenging lighting conditions. We couple these up with our range of fast lenses to make the best of the full frame sensor.
In addition, this year, we have upgraded clients to work with RED, Blackmagic, Canon C Series and Mavo cameras. These have enabled capture up to 6K with greater detail and higher impact slow motion capabilities.
As standard, we come with sound and lighting, and a number of creative options such as slider movements, gimbals, GoPros and more can be added on.
In 2020 we have now added the new Panasonic S1H to our shooting arsenal.
We have the vast majority of what we need in house, right from pre-production, planning, scripting, talent and location sourcing – through production, edit, QC and delivery.
We use strategic partners to support us, from talent directories, to specialist equipment hire, studios and more.
