    Thoughts, musings, and ruminations.

    This year I am celebrating 30 years of working in professional film & video production. Of course, I started young  – as you can see from the photos of me below in my first job at a corporate video production company. We worked with bulky cameras, had to edit on ‘tape’ and then distributed...

    Michael Baynes

    Co-founder of Maxwell-Baynes Real Estate, affiliates of Christie's International Real Estate

    As a business owner I am always looking for a return on my investment and in our market sector – real estate – there is probably no better way to get a message across than through high quality video. An ROI can most readily be seen with increased revenues, but I would also measure it with three other crucial factors: 1) independent initiative 2) reliability and 3) loyalty. Engaging your services at VideoProFrance has yielded a full return on investment in all these areas as we have completed a range of video and digital marketing projects with you; we have been delighted with the quality of work and above all we have really appreciated your steady, wise and collaborative approach to teamwork.

    Michael Forster

    Owner at AMV Live Music Ltd

    Working with Joanna is an absolute pleasure. The type of person who you give a task to and then you stop worrying about it. We worked together on various projects of mine for Universal UK and every one was a huge success. If you're looking for someone who is on the button at every level of TV & Film production then Joanna is your girl. I cannot recommend her enough.

    Chris Welton,

    Communications Director,

    Plastics Europe

    "Over the past few years I've worked with Joanna and her team on a whole range of videos. They are always a pleasure to work with. Their professional skills and experience have brought my
    visions to reality - and their flexibility, creativity and resourcefulness as a production company have steered us through every new challenge that I have thrown at them!"

    Sally Dingle

    Volunteer co-ordinator

    SPA refuge, Bergerac

    The video is terrific, absolutely terrific - professional, neat and concise, the message is clear and visuals are uplifting as well as showing the less attractive reality of the situation without becoming too negative. Thank you for capturing the whole message and picture so wonderfully well - on the hoof at such short notice, with no prior site visit, no plan of action provided by us, no warning of the participants or the format for the day - you are remarkable. You have worked a miracle. Thank you.

    Marianne Kooij

    Itinerant teacher of the visually impaired at Royal Dutch Visio, Netherlands

    While Joanna was in Tanzania Joanna made a most professional photo reportage of low vision and blind children in schools and during their assessment in the hospital. She has a wonderful style of working, we were hardly aware of her being there. Thank you Joanna.

    Peter Elias

    Managing Director, Allez Francais

    We found Joanna to be excellent in all respects. She has a good eye for detail, took time to understand exactly how our business functions, and our plans for the future. Then, after reflection & consultation, Joanna proposed a programme for our video, matched with a script to convey our desired message. On the day of the “shoot”, everything was well planned and executed, highlighting her professionalism. After filming, we were given access to a “draft” version of the video, before the final version was prepared. We were all impressed by Joanna’s manner, skills and communications. We would be very happy to endorse her company for any such work. Peter Elias (Founder Allez-Français).
