Say hello to a dedicated team of creative individuals busy producing all kinds of rich media and video content for a wide range of clients both directly and in partnership with agencies.
We deliver beautifully crafted films and online content – from original ideas, concepts and treatments, through the production process, filming and post production. We also compose original music and handle cross platform digital delivery – so wherever your film ends up it will work.
Our philosophy is simple – everything starts with a good idea. So we listen carefully to clearly identify your message and then we go about getting it out there in the most effective and engaging way. Whatever your budget we deliver only the highest production values.
As the digital universe continues to expand we’ll continue to embrace it – so keep checking us out, there will be regular postings and general excited musings on all things digital!
We have a whole bunch of very exciting toys that we like to bring to projects – we’re currently shooting a lot on our Canon 5d MkII’s and Canon 7d. Our cameras come fully supported with rig, follow focus, matte box and monitor and a whole host of prime and zoom lenses. Perfect for shooting HD projects. We also have a steadicam, wally dolly tracks, a quadra-jib, lighting, audio gear – so lot’s of toys to make your project look and sound fantastic!
We also have two Sony DVCAM DSR camera kits which provide a high quality SD solution when the need arises. Right tool for the right job!!
