Our showreel gives a pretty good overview of the breadth of work we have undertaken over the last couple of years as well as showing the diversity of our skills base within the film and video production world. Our work has taken us all over the U.K but our geographical base remains in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Over the last year we have provided shooting and editing services in many cities including Leeds, London, Birmingham, Bristol, Manchester, Sheffield and produced projects from concept to final output as well as providing freelancers for film/ video productions.
We have provided promotional, training, live event and music video production services such as filming, editing and video encoding to companies operating throughout the United Kingdom (as well as abroad) and have a strong focus on creating original, high quality video concepts.
We are based in Leeds, West Yorkshire but regularly dispatch crews all over the country for location and studio shoots. The last couple of years have seen us travel as far as London, Birmingham, Manchester, Bristol, Middlesbrough, Essex and Surrey for productions but we regularly work with companies closer to home in Leeds, Wakefield, Bradford, Barnsley, Sheffield, Huddersfield, Harrogate and York.
We cater for all three stages of video production which are commonly known as pre-production, production and post-production.
After having initial meetings with a client to assess their wants and needs a video treatment will be developed along with a suggested budget. Once this has been a approved a script will be developed in industry standard format.
In addition storyboards will often be created in order to illustrate shot composition and camera movements before starting principal photography. This allows clients to get more of a feel for the proposed look of a project as well as helping production to run quicker and smoother.
Production will usually consist of studio or location filming with a camera crew and director. This will sometimes include other elements, such as actors and presenters.
Finally, post-production is where the filmed (live action) footage is edited together. This may also include recording an audio voice-over, adding graphics, composing a music score or soundtrack, and incorporation of 2D/3D animation sequences.
The time and scale of a video production can vary greatly. Some videos may use only minimal crew and basic equipment, whilst some large scale videos may have similar budgets and level of production to a broadcast television programme or TV commercial.
