Services

"We brought Large Scale in to create a DVD from an event focused on food and health - with the remit of making it light, funny and exciting:  no mean feat. Our client was incredibly with the results and so were we.  Steve asked all the right questions right from the beginning, making it much easier to be clear about what was achievable in the time-scales and within the allocated budget.  So thanks very much Steve!"

"Ours was a small scale production treated as if we were an elite client. The team were sensitive, friendly and thorough, turning round in a tight time frame an excellent short film using oral hitory and family archive material. Exceptionally professional."

Video is the medium of the moment; it is the medium people pay attention to.

Video is a flexible medium and we have a flexible approach to meet your needs. We offer a range of services in the broad areas of development, pre pre-production, shooting, post-production and distribution. We will listen to your ideas, needs and requirements and create a video that will speak to your customers on a platform they can access.

Our services include

Free Initial Meetings

We are free and willing to meet at anytime to discuss any moving image project you wish to undertake. The earlier you speak to us the better. We can gauge the scope of your project and start thinking about the time scale. Hopefully we can give you some advice which will make your project manageable and realisable within the budget and time scale you have in mind. 

Consultation

At the start of each project we will spend time with you discussing the specifics of your project and obtain a detailed understanding of you and your requirements. At this stage we will discuss your ambitions for the project - what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it - discover who your target audience is, how you want to reach them, what format is best  - data file, DVD, web upload or tape - and how long you want the for the finished piece to be. After this meeting we will send you a detailed note outlining the budget, timescale, and technical specifications of your project. 

Script and story development 

Even the most apparently simple film needs a story or structure. It is the structure that will keep the audience interested. We can develop a traditional script or use a number of methods to collect the content you want to convey and the best way to communicate that content to an audience. It is only when both parties are happy with the content and structure will we move on to the shoot. 

Storyboards and other time based visualisation tools

We have agreed the content, so how is the film going to look? Storyboards or concept art can help you to see how the film will come to life,  and there are plenty of options of traditional or non traditional ways of visualising the work. Both scripting and storyboards, although they take a little time, can save time and money at later stages. If we can agree content and the look at this stage there will be fewer surprises later in the process.

Shooting

Large Scale can offer the complete shooting package using high definition workflows. We can provide all the equipment to shoot your film including cameras, camera supports, sound equipment and lighting. We can also source specialist equipment if your production requires it. We can source and contract locations, actors, presenters, crew and technicians as necessary.  

Picture editing

Large Scale has a state of the art editing suite at our office in Phoenix Square and we can also supply mobile editing solutions if required. We can work with footage from analogue and almost all digital formats, capturing your footage taking it through any number of saved versions, from a rough cut to final cut.
 
We can adjust images, add effects, add titles, overlay multiple images, add credits, add logos & branding, graphics, and motion graphics. We can source copyright assigned music and sound effects so you can distribute your film legally. We have trained editors, a powerful computer and a lot of software so there is scope to be creative! We have set up a secure viewing area on this website so you can look through the film and make comments as the film progresses, alternatively you can visit our office. 

Sound Editing

Good sound really makes a difference to film production. We offer full sound recording and edit facilities. We can record sounds and music for your production, and source every sound you are likely to need. We optimise dialogue and can balance all the sound elements together in a final mix so it will sound great whether on the web, DVD or 500 seat auditorium.
 
We can source copyright assigned (legal) music for your production or commission music specially for your film. We are in contact with some extremely talented musicians who can produce work in any genre. 

Graphics & special effects

Large Scale can create any graphics material you require for your film. We can create graphs, charts, diagrams, maps, titles, credits, captions, any text and image combination, matte backgrounds and probably anything else you can imagine!

Motion Graphics

As the title suggests these are the graphics that move! They can add a real zip to your production and at Large Scale we have the software and expertise to design and deliver anything you require.
