Briefing, Listening, Planning

Video has three important parts

Pre-productionProduction and Post-Production

The pre-production needs to be a collaborative effort because obviously we can’t write your story for you, but what we can do is gently prod and tease the best stories out of you, and string them together coherently.

Discretion and confidentiality

This is your film. And though we will bring the experience and power of professional video production to create a super impressive video for you, this will be a guaranteed one-off, highly confidential film for you to hand down to the generations-to-come of your family.

Whatever your passion

Whatever your passion, we can cover it. A video needs to be as rich and interesting as possible – not just a talking head. So while you talk about your life and your passion, let’s show you enjoying the food and wine, driving the cars and planes. Cooking or singing, or whatever you love to do.

Whatever you choose to say

Welcome too would be old family photographs and artifacts with a story behind them.
