Scriptwriting

Video Production Manchester ScriptScriptwriting is the most important element of any successful video project. Even if there is no ‘script’ as such i.e. it is using interviews, visuals only or clever animation, the video still needs a script and plan that states what is happening when.

Whether you require a one, two or multi person crew; full camera and sound kit, extra equipment like dollies, steadicams or cranes or filming out of the side of the helicopter; we can provide it!

Interviewing

InterviewingEveryone has a story to tell, but sit them down in front of a camera and “deer in the headlights” takes on new meaning! It takes a special talent to capture those heartfelt stories and those sincere messages. We’ve got that. With years of news experience, our stable of producers has interviewed everyone from politicians to footballers to CEO’s, children and even cats (well not quite but we did try!) as well as average Joes and Janes and everything in between. We have a knack for putting people at ease in front of the camera.

Producing/Directing

Video Production Manchester FilmingA good video is more than just clever filming and editing. It take directing and producing to achieve the clever filming and editing. This is what makes Capture 1 projects stand out and be successful in the long run. We have broadcast trained producer producers and directors and this experience is notable in our work.

 

Camera Crews

Video Production Manchester Camera CrewJust need a camera crew to support your marketing department, activities or in-house media creation. We are your men (and ladies!). We can turn up, take direction and get the footage to you same day if required!

 

 

Live events

Live EventsSingle or multi camera live event filming is a special skill and one which we have a great deal of experience of achieving for clients over the years. If you require a live event filming, we will first discuss with you the objectives for this and then propose a solution that will fit this and often save you money than what you originally thought you might need!

Autocue filming

Autocue FilmingNeed accurate delivery of a script, done quickly and effectively. An auto cue can be a valuable filming tool if the person being filmed is best talking directly to the camera. We can provide this solution. Please note though we will always discuss and ensure that it is the best solution. If the person being filmed has never ben in front of a camera before, we would not advise this as the best solution, as the chance of them coming across as natural and engaging with the viewer would be doubtful. We would therefore advise on alternative and better ways of achieving this. However for an actor, presenter, sports personality, politician or even senior businessperson with media experience and limited time, the auto cue solution is perfect.

Actors, presenters and performers

Video Production Manchester actorsWe have a large bank of high quality and varied actors and presenters who we can bring in to projects appropriately.

 

 

Editing and post-production

Editing and post productionA critical part of being a good production company is the quality and expertise of the post -production. We’ve got the training, tools and experience on our post production team to handle your broadcast, commercial and corporate video editing needs with creativity, craftsmanship and expedience.

Green Screen Filming

Green Screen FilmingWe can either film in our own studios or bring our portable green screen set up to you or a relevant location, enabling us to film using ‘green screen’ and superimpose whatever is required into the background.

 

Animation and motion graphics

Infographic AnimationMotion graphics and 3D animation are a great way to communicate complex ideas and let’s face it, add some cool factor to your projects. This is something we can include within a project or create a project purely out of motion graphics. We have in-house capabilities and we also have a network of creative talent that we rely on to cater to your project’s specific requirements. So whether you need a completely animated piece or just  a few elements to enhance your final video, we can handle it.

Audio and voiceover recording

Audio and VoiceoversWe work closely with a dedicated sound production company, who have broadcast standard, audio recording studios. We can record ‘down the line’ with them, enabling us to turn around a voiceover or audio recording very quickly. We also have a large bank of diverse voiceover artists available for your projects, including male and female of all ages and accents and can even provide foreign language voiceovers and editing services.

Multi language, translations, subtitles, audio dubbing

Multi LanguageOften, videos need to go worldwide and despite English being the main worldwide language in business, you video will be more effective if delivered in the local language to your viewer. We have capabilities and experience of creating multi language versions of your video. It is not as simple as just recording a new voiceover. Often, variations in lengths of languages, mean that editing tweaks must be done to ensure the video has the same impact in other languages that it has in English. Our attention to detail ensures that this is the case.

DVD design, creation and authoring

DVD DesignDespite the majority of videos having an outlet online nowadays, there are still a number of instances where as DVD is the preferred method of viewing. This may be in addition to an online outlet. Having created DVDs from when they first came into being in the late 90’s, we can easily create motion and interactive menus for your DVDs or alternatively just a simply auto play DVD might be what you need – we will advise and create appropriately.

Disc duplication

Disc DuplicationFrom 1 – 100,000 discs, we can create artwork, presentation packaging and have them duplicated for you. Depending on numbers required, turnaround time is usually 10-14 days.

Video Strategy & Distribution

Video Production Manchester FilmingCreating a video is one thing. Making sure it works and has an impact is another! We ensure that not only does the video get created to fit your objectives, but that it works within your wider strategy and is distributed most appropriately to have an impact.
