I couldn’t imagine getting out of bed, and not wanting to take pictures. Our broadcast solutions include a range of professional products and services. From capture to final edit we are able to deliver exceptional value to our clients. We can assist with other services including script writing and pre production planning right through to execution and delivery of the finished product in a number of formats Having had many years experience in the industry allows me to arrive at a situation, assess what is happening and create a story by observation. My primary work in TV news has also taught me some valuable habits, which stick with me to this day.  The primary one being there as an observer and not a participant. In today’s marketplace, one needs to be very aware when doing news type stories of what is presented to one as unsubstantiated fact.  Remembering that one is there to report on what is happening, and concentrate on your observations and what is presented to you, means that your story will be credible and even handed. I often shoot news stories, it is an exciting thing to do.
Event live mixing
Live Mixing There is a greater call for small low cost live mixing for events where it is necessary to send a signal to a remote location. I have done live mixing at a wide variety of events, conferences, graduations and also done live mixing for streaming purposes at TedX events.  This is one of the services I offer which are out of the ordinary in terms of a “normal” production company. Doing something as basic as a two camera event, makes all of the difference in small events where images are needed to be viewed in a remote location. It just adds that touch of professionalism which makes all the difference.  
Editing & Sound
Sound can make or break your message.   I started in sound way back in the 1970’s.  I still today do all of my own sound mixes and finishes.  I make use of modern sound editing software to get the sound right for the media.  Often the sound makes all the difference to a picture. When I was lecturing I used to say to students, imagine a beach scene, children laughing, the sound of the sea, splashing, happy kiddy music in the background. Now change the music to the theme music from JAWS, how does that change the scene for you from a psychological perspective. Having the equipment doesn’t make you an editor, having the knowledge and feel for the work is what makes the difference.  There are times when you need to say something, and there are times when the images speak louder than words.  Editing pace and style are not something you are taught, it is something which you learn. I use Sony professional editing systems, as they are reliable, versatile and have a company which has been at the forefront of broadcast media for many years.
