Are you still operating?Yes. We’re still open and fully functional. Continue reading for more information about our service availability and what we’re doing to keep our customers and staff safe from COVID-19.
On the 4th January 2021, the UK Government announced another national lockdown. The official guidance states that individuals are allowed to leave home for work purposes when it’s unreasonable to work from home.
As we cannot reasonably work on location or in our studio from home, we can continue operating with our “COVID safe” measures throughout the lockdown period. Additionally, venues are explicitly allowed to remain open for film and television production, which covers our activities.
Our services will continue as outlined below…
Over the past few months we’ve put measures in place to ensure the safety of our customers and our team for almost every type of filming project. This includes:
- Wearing face coverings for the entire time that we’re working. (With the exception of presenters while they’re on screen.)
- Maintaining social distance, and maximising it wherever possible.
- Sanitising equipment that needs to be touched by multiple people, such as lavalier microphones.
- Reducing crew sizes whenever possible.
- Limiting our use of public transport.
- Operating Track and Trace at our studio via the NHS COVID-19 app.
- And providing refreshments to guests at our studio in disposable containers. In fact, we prefer that guests bring their own refreshments at the moment.
For location work, most of our clients also have COVID-19 procedures of their own. We’ll be following these in addition to our own procedures.
We’ve also prepared a COVID-19 Risk Assessment template, which you can download below. This will be completed before any productions with unusual requirements, or where there is greater risk than usual.

With these measures in place, it’s still very much “business as usual” for us. Our studio is open, we’re still filming, and we’re excited to continue making great videos for our clients. We can’t wait to work with you!
Editing, Animation & Post-Production
Most of our post-production work is still being carried out from our edit suite, although we’re also doing some from home. Either way, we have full access to all of our current projects. We also have have complete access to our project archives, too.
Whether you’re looking to start a new project or would like re-edits of archive material, we’re fully equipped to help. No task is too big or small, simple or complex.
Given the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s every chance that the information on this page may change. We’ll continue to keep it up to date with our current service offerings.
We have a wide variety of services, and there’s a chance that what you’re looking for might not be covered in this article. Unless we say otherwise, we’re continuing to operate as fully as possible around whatever restrictions we have to work within. Regardless of what you need, I’m sure we can find a solution.
In the meantime, please stay safe – and we look forward to working with you on your next video project.
