We are also experienced at distributing and optimising content for YouTube, Vimeo and other social platforms.

Project timescales vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the project and client timelines. We do however pride ourselves on being efficient and always deliver projects within agreed deadlines without compromising on quality.

What should I wear on camera?

We typically recommend wearing plain clothing as it translates well on camera. Avoiding busy patterns like checks and stripes helps prevent interference with the camera and ensures a clean, professional look.

You do! Once we have handed over the final video, you have full ownership of the footage. Additionally, we can provide the RAW footage at an additional cost if you require it for future edits or archival purposes.

We can accommodate your preferences, whether you prefer a small or large crew. Typically, we send a production team of 2-3 people, but this can be reduced or expanded if necessary to meet the specific requirements of your project.

How much input will the client need to provide?

Client involvement can vary based on your preferences. We offer flexible collaboration options, ranging from taking full ownership of the project to working closely with you in a collaborative manner.

What’s the ‘score’ with audio?

We source and use copyright-free audio to complement your video content. Depending on your preferences and project requirements, this may incur additional charges. Using copyright-free audio ensures that you can use your footage freely across various platforms to reach your audience without any legal concerns.

Do you travel for video projects?

We are based in Sudbury, Suffolk, but will happily travel nationally and internationally to meet your needs.
