Services

In addition to the usual stuff like cameras, tripods lights and mics, we offer a range of services to help you deliver your message

Project Management

We can step in to the process at whatever stage you like, it may just be a back of an envelope idea at the moment or a fully realised script. We help develop the concept and drive it forward to actuality.

Script Writing

Turning an initial idea into a usable and effective piece can be a daunting process. However - developing the ideas, creating a structure and developing a comprehensive script and storyboard will pay huge dividends once shooting commences. Not least because unnecessary footage won’t be shot, thereby saving time and expense. But you will also be assured of meeting the objective of producing an effective and impactful piece, in the most creative manner possible in order to connect with your desired audience.

Clear direction and good performances will stem from a good script but simple factual pieces will also benefit from being produced from a clear and comprehensive brief.

We can take your concept and then develop and expand the idea so that the message is finally delivered succinctly. Corporate messages or sales pitches are honed and polished. Informative and educational pieces are presented in the most appealing and exciting style. In short your message will look and sound professional.

We can help develop a two line ‘back of the envelope’ idea or expand a more detailed brief into a full script, so that before the lights are turned on and the cameras roll, you are totally confident that the piece will work.

Editing

Post production is based around our Avid® editing platform, the most proven video editing software in the industry, trusted by professional editors in every segment of movie making, television, broadcast, and streaming media.

Designed to handle high volumes of disparate file-based media, Avid Media Composer® delivers accelerated high-res, HD and 4K workflows with powerful media management, eliminating time-consuming tasks so we can focus on telling a great story — Super fast, with plenty of terabytes of storage and complimented by the excellent Sorenson Squeeze compression plug in, we are confident we can handle any format and output to anything!

We also run a laptop based system for those on location edits when time is at a premium.

Auto cue

Through lens auto cueing makes on camera delivery simple and stress free and so makes any on presenter look confident and professional. All you or your colleague has to do is read the words as they appear.

Online delivery solutions

Online events allow people to communicate to a worldwide remote audience who view via their PC, tablet or smartphone.

Post event the videos can be stored online on a custom built website that enables viewers to watch back 'On Demand' at their own convenience.

Thus conferences can be shown to interested parties in a different country, seminars and training material can be distributed to a wider audience than could physically attend and live sporting or entertainment made available on demand.

The system we utilise allows us to bespoke the solution to your requirements so the results will integrate with your existing IT infrastructure seamlessly, privacy settings can be set up allowing access to only those who have pre registered or who have been given prior access instructions.

DVD authoring

CD or DVD/Blu-ray duplication is ideal for short runs from as little as one copy to 1000 units, CD or DVD Replication is ideal for larger runs. Presentation of the final product is vital, so we offer a wide range of bespoke packaging options from full colour on disc print delivered in a simple plastic wallet to discs printed with a stunning high quality, high gloss, on body print, protected by a UV disc coating. Library cases with inlays and booklets can also be printed with the same high gloss finish for the ultimate high impact, professional look.

Presenters / voiceovers

We work with a wide range of professional voice over artists and on screen presenters so can ensure your message is delivered clearly and effectively. All accents, dialects, styles, tones and inflections can be catered for, no matter how bizarre.

Subtitling / sign language

Need your programme to be more accessible? We work with accredited BSL signers and can subtitle pieces simply and quickly.

Translation

Foreign language versions can be dubbed and added as a separate version to a DVD or produced as web compatible files for inclusion on websites.

VHS to DVD Transfer

Obsolete tape formats such as VHS tape, mini DV or cine films hold many precious memories that you have no way of playing. We are able to make all of this ‘old’ media accessible again by transferring, and editing where necessary, the footage to DVD or web compliant files (MP4’s).

Our transfer services are available for a wide range of video formats, including:

  • VHS - both standard and long play recordings
  • VHS-C
  • SVHS
  • Betamax
  • Video 8
  • Hi 8
  • Digital 8
  • Umatic
  • Mini DV
  • Beta SP
  • DV Cam
  • DVC Pro

In addition we convert old 8 and 16 mm films, transfer 35 mm slides, photos and can preserve audio recordings from cassette or 1/4 inch spools to CD.

Once we have moved your old footage to a digital format, copies can be quickly run off for family and friends.

Whatever your requirements or if you don’t see your media type listed, call for advice on how we can help, we haven’t been beaten by an old tape yet!

Case Studies

MHAG

We worked with Derby Mental Health Action Group and Mind to produce a training piece to be used in the bus industry highlighting the problems those suffering from mental health conditions have when accessing public transport.

Involved from day one, we helped with the development of the script prior to arranging the logistics of the shoot .The final piece was rolled out to great acclaim both within the industry but also within the field of mental health awareness.

Graphics Direct

Graphics Direct needed a couple pieces producing for a presentation to a key supplier. We had to work quickly to meet a tight deadline, the final pieces where thus planned, shot edited, and placed online within 5 days.

IST + JF

As both businesses rely greatly on the personalities and approachability of Andy and Julie, these pieces were planned and implemented as simple green screen shoots, enabling us to place these key 'human faces of the businesses' in the foreground while delivering subtle messages around their performance.

Lorien

As well as delivering the nomination videos for their annual awards we provided live coverage of the actual awards which was fed to the stage and ancillary screens.
