non-specialists. We make genuinely professional video for sales,
promotion, social media, training, education, exhibition, advertising and
most other other business purposes.
We are experienced, trained and
legitimately qualified television professionals. First established in
October 1986 at The Red Road in Springburn, where the old

don't just 'create around feelings' or any other such nebulous
And as masters
of our own, we strongly reject the 'Jack of all trades' mentality.
PROFESSIONAL CREWS. We only use crew who have
successfully studied TV or Film production at a legitimate UK
Academic Institution and/or trained with a major UK broadcaster such
as the BBC or one of the ITV companies.
The Caledonian Television

ITV-trained cameraman - and former Lecturer in Television

broadcast experience to his name!
PROFESSIONAL EQUIPMENT. We shoot on real broadcast
TV cameras - NOT DSLRs! We edit to meet EBU AS-11 broadcast
standards for topical content on full edit suites. And naturally, we
use traditional broadcast lighting and sound.
Legitimate professionals - with the right
tools for the job!
Your professional video partners...
As a matter of policy we do not
seek to 'poach work' from other creative specialists... we simply don't
have to! - Although for instance we do provide professional
assistance with using video in a marketing context, we don't pretend to
be a 'video marketing agency'! - 35 years of experience has taught us
that video is only one possible element of a coherent marketing mix and
we're quite happy to acknowledge it isn't a good fit in every case. -
We'll happily work with your choice of PR or marketing professionals;
and if you happen to be in that field yourself - we'll work with
you to integrate truly professional video with your own offering.
We're not in the business of upselling overpriced hosting or SEO
services either! - Although of course helping you find
and upload to the best platform, is just part of the job. We're
happy to point you in the direction of independent hosting - and we'll
never 'hold your material hostage' by tying you down to some dubious
'analytics' or SEO deal!
As legitimate professionals we use
proven broadcast production strategies to assess your business needs and
discover the best approach to meet them. We never approach any
enquiry hell-bent on closing a sale. And if video just isn't
feasible or right for your particular project we'll happily tell
you so at an early stage... without obligation or cost.
Care to talk? Want to find out more? Or just push some
ideas around the table? No cost, no obligation, no hard-sell nor silly
sales patter! Just an honest, down to earth, face-to-face chat with
one of our project managers. We're always pleased to hear from
potential clients and partners, and invite you to talk to us, without
any obligation or pressure, as early as possible in your project.
