Filming, Production & Online Resources

Filming & Production

Our studio is based at our city campus, however we can bring a mobile set up to a suitable location to capture talking heads, focus group discussions, specialist space or techniques. We provide the equipment and support for filming including ideas on direction, post-production and advice on the delivery options available including DVD, web streaming or other.

The video below demonstrates the transition process from the initial filming against the green screen, through to the finished product.

Although a lot of our filming takes place for moderation take a look at some of our larger film projects.
