Bespoke creative film production, helping brands tell compelling stories that build value with excellent film and video content.
Producing all sorts of engaging films from my studio in Cornwall. Including but certainly not limited to: short form documentaries, music videos, brand films, product lead content, festival after-movies and Instagram Reels.
Taking your film brief and making it the story a reality within the bounds of your budget.
In this crucial organisational stage we take and develop your project brief together, ensuring the creative works, scouting locations and finding the most suitable talent to star in your film project.
It’s time for all the hard work organising the shoot to pay off. The cast are assembled, scripts and creative are finalised and we begin to film the production.
We are ready and able for any kind of shoot, using high end cameras able to shoot 4k and optional beautiful slow-motion. We have gimbles for those smooth camera movements, drones for stunning aerial footage and water housings for in & under water filming.
Once the video shoot has wrapped the next part of this creative journey begins. We take all the footage shot on the day and meticulously review it to find the very best shots and start the edit of the final film(s) based upon your original brief and our pre-production storyboards. We use the latest Adobe Premier Pro on high spec Macs.
Once the first draft of the video(s) have been delivered it is time for your input, perhaps you like the edit just as it is or perhaps you feel it needs a few tweaks, this is your opportunity to get it just right.
With the final revisions done its time for the colour correction, and stylising to be done. This with some eloquent sound design really gives the production its final flare!
Once all the other parts are complete your edit(s) are delivered, whether that is an Instagram Reel, business overview video for your website, documentary or lifestyle edit showing your product being used in the real world, the final edit will be tailored to the platform(s) you wish to use it on. Vertical video or cinema style wide all in glorious 4K/ HD quality! Ready to take your marketing to the next level.

Exciting and engaging music videos are a great way to increase the reach of your music. We work with musicians all the way from initial concepts through the film production process to final delivery. We can also produce cuts formatted for Spotify to really make your music stand out.
With experience creating YouTube content I am aware of the distinct aspects that make up a YouTube video. Audiences on Youtube expect value and I am able to help you plan design and ultimately film and produce content specifically for your target audience.
We know that having stunning video content on your website not only drives engagement but also supports their customer journey and understanding of your brand story. Working with you we create high quality compelling story driven film productions that resonate with your audience.
