HOW WE WORK
We believe the best content comes from a collaboration of minds, understanding what people want to say and translating into film. We’ll work with you from beginning to end.
We often start with just an idea, developing it into a storyboard, and taking it right the way through the production process to create a series of films that you can be proud of.
We love the challenge of having a script or a brief and using our creative energies to develop new ideas to tell your story. We’ve got a great team of creative directors, DOP’s, animators and editors so we can bring those thoughts to life on screen.
Our aim is to develop long term and lasting relationships with the people, brands, and causes we work with. Here’s a snippet of what they say about us:
“Creative, intuitive and full of energy and charisma. I love working with Close Up Productions, they are a great agency and always deliver a special project whatever you throw at them”.
“I’ve worked with Close Up Productions across a range of projects from Hyde Park Winter Wonderland, The Big Feastival, The Natural History Museum Ice Rink and Hampton Court Palace Festival. They understand our brands inside and out, and I trust them implicitly to deliver exactly what we need. Highly professional, creative, and energetic”.
“Close Up Productions make brilliant and beautiful films that capture the essence of our brand. They're professional, creative and above all a joy to work with and that's why we've continued to collaborate with them to make super engaging content that's been highly effective!”
“We wanted a short film to promote our business, but were worried it would be time consuming and expensive.
Close Up Productions made it simple and stress free. Their creative input improved our initial concept and succinctly encapsulates all that our business stands for.”
“Close Up Productions have created some truly powerful, moving, and inspiring videos for our foundation. From a campaign film helping to start a conversation around suicide prevention to a series of training films. We’ve had such a positive response from professional football clubs, schools, colleges and the Police Force, and they’ve helped us reach thousands of people. It’s been a great experience”.
“Close Up Productions were a pleasure to work with and the professionalism of the whole team far exceeds anything we’ve previously experienced. Their passion for filmmaking shines through and we’re very much looking forward to working on future events”.
