  • Canon C200 review

    I am very excited with the announcement of the launch of the new Canon C200. For the last four years i’ve used the C100 & C300 which have delivered great results, so it’s great to see Canons moving forward with it’s new release.

  • Aviva Tv shoot


    As usual, we’ve had great fun filming the new TV advert for Aviva. The new Equity Release film will air in June and encourages people to free up some money in their homes for things they need now.

  • The Canon family ready for action – Headingley stadium

    Camera Action

  • The Red Dragon – Our opinion!

    Red Dragon

    This week we shot an advert using the Red Dragon at Prime Studios in Leeds. We shot the video in 4k at 100fps so we could get some really sexy slow motion content and the picture quality from the camera is simply stunning. But this is a very heavy-duty production camera so it needs lots of extra elements to make it part of the video workflow. It also started to automatically duplicate files on the cards, which has caused some distress in the edit but is easy enough to work around in post.


  • The Grand National video – BBC

    Red Rum

    If your heading to the The Grand National this year then head over to the Jockey Club where you will find a fantastic exhibition created by Bananakick. The video we’ve created for the event will also be featured on the BBC throughout the event.

  • Russell Hobbs

    Towards the end of last year we worked with The Ponderosa Group and Russell Hobbs creating some great online content with 30 very artistic children. Watch this space.
