Private party at Osea Island...

This is a promo we filmed for Osea Island, the luxury holiday resort off the coast of Essex. The scenic countryside and sea views made it the perfect venue for this private party. It's so close to London too!

☀ Filming in Greece...

Just got back from a lovely week filming in Paxos, a beautiful island in Greece. If you get a chance to go. Go. It's the most amazing place. Very laid back, friendly and not touristy at all. We also managed to get a boat to Anti Paxos, a tiny island off Paxos. Sandy beaches and not a soul in sight! 


We shot a film for Planos Holidays who own about 40 villas on the Island. Here are some snaps we also took...

Why its essential to have VIDEO on your website...

Video accounts for 51% of all web traffic today, which is why more and more companies are incorporating video content in to their website. It adds energy and a uniquely personal touch. 

Streaming video increases the time customers will spend browsing your site by 344%, compared to a static site.

Video is the most immersive medium the web has to offer. For the leisure industry, where customer can't always experience your product before they choose to purchase, its extremely powerful.

It will help promote and market your business with both style and impact. It can also take your advertising and marketing message way beyond your own site by seeding on various social media sites. This enables you to drive more traffic back to your website.

Photos are great, but nothing beats watching a good quality video.
