What We Offer

Got an idea? Let us help you bring it to life; from inception to delivery, we offer a complete production service.

Pre-production

Development

+

The development stage is where your ideas are formed into treatments, synopses, character breakdowns and storyboards. We can guide you through this process, using our experience and knowledge to support you in creating your project from the ground up.

Screenwriting

+

Every successful film starts with a great script, and the foundation of your project relies on getting your script right. Our experienced in-house writers have worked in television, film and online, and can offer all the advice and support you need in creating your script.

Project Management

+

Every project, large or small, needs guidance and thorough planning across all stages of development, production and delivery to make sure everything runs smoothly as we work to attain the highest standards of quality.

We have experienced project managers that have worked for studios, corporations and digital media companies to support you and your projects from the initial concept through to final product.

Production

Filming

This is the first moment that your ideas become tangible. With an experienced crew and high-end filming equipment, we will capture every aspect, every emotion and every moment of your film to the highest standard.

Sound

Sound brings the scene right into the room with you by using dialogue, sound effects and music to breathe life into the visuals. We offer sound recording, both off and on set, with qualified sound mixers, high-end production equipment, and in-house voice recording facilities to give your project crisp, evocative audio. 

Equipment Hire

We can fully equip any shoot to suit your requirements. Our equipment store includes DSLRs, Blackmagic Cinema cameras, cinema lenses, prime lenses, radio mics, shotgun booms, traditional redhead lights, and dual-toned LED panels. Plus, an array of tripods and grip kit, including dollies and jib arms.

Post-production

Editing

+

Post Production is the final stage of your project. Our two online and four offline edit suites are located at the heart of Hereford city centre and are available to hire, with or without an experienced Senior or Junior Editor.

All of our suites benefit from the latest Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, including Premiere Pro, After Effects, Audition, Photoshop and much more. For clients seeking broadcast-quality software, we also run the latest Avid Media Composer package in two of our suites. And, just in case it’s ever needed, we still keep a legacy system running Final Cut Pro 7.

Each suite is connected to our EVO Shared Storage for a collaborative editing experience and an efficient digital workflow.

Colour

Our new Colour Suite offers a full client experience. We can provide a basic colour grade in Premiere Pro, online picture fixes in After Effects or a complex colour grade using the powerful DaVinci Resolve suite.

We strive to offer a creative and comfortable viewing environment for our clients, so our primary edit suite is equipped with a 133-inch projection screen, and a Flanders Scientific broadcast monitor, calibrated by industry specialists for high-end delivery, for colour-accurate work.

Our Colour Suite is the perfect environment for high-end finishing, but it can also be used as a private Offline Suite and work space that includes a client hot desk, fast WiFi and refreshment facilities.

Sound

+

Sound is as important as picture and our main suite is equipped with voiceover recording facilities and Adobe Audition sound-editing software. We are also networked to an experienced pool of specialist freelancers, so for clients who need a high-end audio mix, we can match your needs to the right talent and supervise the process through to final delivery.

Delivery

+

Our facility can deliver in multiple formats, whether your content is destined for a smartphone, computer screen or cinema projection.

Using specialist industry software, we can produce DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) quickly and efficiently, but also check content for quality before delivering to the cinema. Projects can also be delivered in AppleProRes, H264 for the Web and more.

Once your project is complete, we’ll archive your work to our LTO tape system, a cost-effective method of archiving that allows for long-term storage (up to 30 years, compared to a hard drive that lasts only four years).
