Production Services

Most companies I work with go for the mini-doc package you see below, however I’ve recently added a number of services more suited to businesses wanting to engage with social media and get high quality result out more urgently than the typical fully crewed up production. I offer a range of production services which also work well with some of the animation services I provide, such as motion graphics and ident creation.

I’ve also worked on the teams of a lot of other productions as a director, camera operator, Director of Photography and drone operator, so there are yet more projects worked on that for legal reasons cannot post on my own website, these include commercials, brand films, broadcast productions and even a few movies. Please ask for more details.

EXAMPLE PROJECTS

Tnmoc d-day films

The Nation Museum of Computing asked me to make a set of two films covering the 75 anniversary of D-Day. Filmed over the course of 1 day, we got interviews with incredible veterns of Bletchley Park’s code breaking efforts as well as covering some of the events during the celebrations. Production involved dual cameras, sound recording and mixing. This an extremely typical mini-doc production and is one of a number of projects I’ve made for the museum over the years.

A BRIGHTER FUTURE

“A brighter future for Coventry in 2021” – In late 2020 I had a chance to spend a day with Taiwo Owatemi MP and 2nd day of production meeting some of her consituancy. It was a challenging film to produce given Covid-19 had prevented her team from getting much of the social media coverage you’d normal hope to get. Despite this we were able to make a mini-documentary using news articles and parliamentary speeches as well as getting our own coverage to make a film that really get to the heart of her and story and the work she does for Coventry.

Wedding example

This video is from the wonderful couple Zoella & Luke, one of the first times I’d been able to film this many people since the start of the pandemic.

I started producing weddings more regually in summer 2021, wanting to get out from behind my desk and film a lot more. It wasn’t my first time producing weddings but it’s now a specific service. I produce wedding videos in collaboration with Claire O’Brien photography. I know Claire from my days working in a film studio in Milton Keynes. Bookings and packages can be found here.

 

 

Drone reel

I qualified as a drone pilot in early 2017, during the time when it was necessary to do exams and flight tests for the CAA. This has given me a grounding safe flying practices and also allowed me to work on some amazing projects, including working for McLaren, JLR and Red Bull very early on as well as my own productions. I’m happy to work for other production companies to get them the stunning visuals they need, and I’m equally happy to pop up a drone where allow for any of my own projects.

music videos

About a third of my work is spent on music video production. For that reason, please visit my music video website for further details, as they’re far more examples over there: https://dcmusicvideos.com/

Great to turn around something fast whilst getting professional footage. This package includes one day of filming with one camera operator with a gimble for a day, one day edit. If it’s me filming (it usually is) I’m happy to fly drone on these days if safe and permitted. This is intended to produce a one minute film and a 30 second cut down, both visual edits set to music. Revisions not included but can be quoted for. Sound production isn’t included, please see mini-docs for this option.

Typically this includes 3 members of crew – myself directing and camera operating, an A.D and a sound recordist. This includes a lighting package if needed plus any and all of my extensive array of film kit, including two cameras. Post includes 3 days edit, 1 day of sound mixing, licenced music and two sets of changes within that time. Quotes taylored to your needs, should you need more graphics or you don’t need location sound, I can give you a more accurate number following a phone call.

Usually a custom service, my crew and I will include BTS photography during a production as well as product shots if needed. Many clients are finding they need to have multple social media posts, includin video and photography, interviews and a brand film. Have a chat with me about what your needs are and we can look at way to make a lot of high quality content to attract and hold the audience you look to serve.

Really a service for other production companies or filmmakers, I can supply 4k drone footage ideal for getting a grander perspective over to your audience. Subject to safe flying conditions, please get in touch and I can check if the area you’re hoping to film in is viable. Typically I had over cards to be copied on the day, but I can organise sending on footage where necessary. Expenses charges may apply depending on distance, I have been sent up mountains a few times by clients!
