Charitable Work


We’re keen to remain an active part of our community through our company and through our film work we pursue ways to engage different groups and organisations. Each year we aim to work with a few selected charities and other community groups in order to benefit our local area.

Since initiating this policy we have worked on films for Southend Hospital (Keyhole Cancer Appeal), Gift of a Wedding, Brainwave Children’s Charity,  The Wildlife Trusts and The Learning Revolution Trust. Our work with charities and the community earned us the prestigious ‘South Essex Business Award’ for ‘Best Community private company in September 2016, this was followed in December 2016 with another award at the Essex Countywide Business Awards.

Workshops and seminars


We have previously delivered workshops to the Essex Chambers of Commerce on how to market with video and our experience of the film industry, for Southend Borough Council. We are available for hire to host a film-related talk or workshop for either schools or businesses.

Feature Film Collaboration


We are currently working with a collective of filmmakers and an investment manager to create a film investment fund that will boost feature film production in South Essex. Taking advantage of government tax breaks for film investment, Making use of the facilities we already have in the area (The Backstage Centre, Purfleet) and the upcoming changes to FE work placement guidelines (taking them from 30 days to 3 months) means we will be able to give dozens of students valuable, real-world experience on films that will have a release.

Natalie is currently developing a script for her feature film debut (Working title: Siren) that will be part of the initial three film release slate from Sun Rocket.

Weddings


We are often asked if we film weddings, we do indeed. In fact we have crafted several wedding packages, starting from just £1,250, to help any couple capture their big day. We put a lot of time, effort and attention to detail into every wedding we film so that the couple get a cinematic film they can watch for decades to come . Every love story is beautiful, let us show you yours.

Environmental policy.


As a 21st century company we feel it is not only important but integral to our operations that we think about our environmental impact. Climate change is one of the most pressing matters on humanity and will continue to be so unless en masse we adapt to new ways of doing things.

As a company we have made several steps to make sure that we are as green as we can be. We recycle all paper, plastics and glass that pass through our office and drive a car that has lower emissions that our previous one.

We are a digital company we therefore send only physical documents or packages where necessary, all other communications are done via email. We film on digital memory cards which can be used an infinite amount of times compared to the old mini-DV tapes that could be used only once.
