Filming

Nothing beats getting out behind the camera and capturing the best footage possible to start the process of bringing your vision to life.

My past experience working both in marketing and production companies has given me a wealth of experience across a range of genres and has enabled me to have a very versatile approach to filming.

No matter the scale of the project, I've got you covered with a range of packages that can be scaled up and down to suit the needs.

Editing

Editing is the first chance to fully review all of the footage captured on shoot day and to begin moulding it into the final product.

Editing is what kickstarted my love for video production and it remains one of my favourite stages of the process. 

Attention to detail is my speciality and I won't leave any footage unturned to maximise the most out of the material.

Throughout the editing process I offer the use of a review tool which allows for easy and detailed feedback and annotations to ensure every detail is spot on.

Animating

Motion graphics opens up a whole new world of possibility within any project.

2D animation is a skillset I picked up early on in my video production career and I love pushing the boundaries of it with every project I do.

 

Whether it be adding a custom intro, graphic overlays, or creating a fully animated piece, the possibilities are endless and can be completely tailored to meet your needs.

Fully animated projects can seem daunting at first, but I'll be there to guide you through the process from creation through to delivery,

George was professional from the first to the last email. He listened to what I had in mind and understood the brief perfectly and just made the whole process easy and enjoyable. When filming he was friendly with staff and clients and put everybody at ease and also understood the importance of giving the artists plenty of space to focus. We are all over the moon with the final result and cannot wait to work with George again in the near future!

We’ve been working with George for the last 4/5 months and he’s been such a pleasure to work with. He has created a few different types of videos for us (reels, testimonials, event summaries). He’s fast, reliable, and brings his own expertise to the table to make the output better. He’s delivered every project on time and within budget, which makes him a great asset for any busy creative team.

The Process

Briefing

First things first, hoping on a call to discuss your objectives for the project is a vital first step. Whether you have a clear brief ready to share, or you want to spit ball ideas together, I'm happy to take either approach to build a clear brief that maximises your budget.

Quote

Once the briefing stage is complete, I'll send you a detailed quote of the estimated time and cost required to complete the project. Depending on the project this can either be a fixed price quote for specific deliverables, or it can be priced on an hourly basis which will be logged throughout the project and regularly updated.

Pre Production

Once a quote has been agreed, it's time to get started planning the finer details. This stage will vary depending on the project, and the tasks can vary from scouting film locations, locating talent, spec'ing up specialist equipment, creating storyboards, mapping out timings and so on.

 

But don't let this be overwhelming, depending on what level of assistance you require I can manage and offer as much and as little of this support as you require.

Production

Now this is where the real fun starts. By this stage everything has been planned out and we're ready to start creating your vision.

 

I'll put everything in motion to ensure everything runs smoothly throughout the filming process. By having access to a wide variety of video equipment I can tailor what's used for every project to maximise the output.

If your project is an animation or video edit only, this stage is all about sourcing the footage, graphics and elements required to build the video.

Post Production

By this point the project is well under way and you'll have been kept fully up to date on progress.

This stage is all about editing the story together, reviewing and finalising the video in order to create the best possible results.

Regular feedback sessions is the key to keeping a project on track and I supply use of a secure online tool which allows for precise and efficient feedback sessions.

Delivery

The video is complete, signed off, and everybody is happy! 

 

The only thing left to do is to supply you with the final video files. Don't worry if you're unsure of technical requirements and formats. From the early stage of the project I will advise and manage all of this for you to ensure you have the optimal format for your needs.
