NEW YORK – LONDON – LOS ANGELES
As a Director/Cinematographer working and living between New York, London and Los Angeles over the last twenty years or so has built not only a strong sense of the areas and the locations it provides but strong relationships that are key to getting a production quickly up and running so we can relax and create some beautiful imagery. A well oiled machine where we don’t have to second guess and can focus on the job at hand”. Seamus Conlan
When hiring for a shoot it isn’t just about the photography as it need to be executed perfectly or it all falls apart very quickly. That’s why I have developed a great production team of very skilled and talented individuals that can source great crew and production heads from the film industry that bring a unique experience to the set. A production can range in size with Seamus only having one camera and sound to a set construction on the back lot of a movie studio. With decades of production experience and unlimited resources at our disposal we understand the production process inside and out.
Seamus Conlan can either be hired as the photographer or director/cinematographer of the project and we, the production company, can be hired to oversee the full production. Whatever stage of production you are in we can provide the services below as stand alone to assist in your current production, or take your project from concept to final production delivery. Knowing that one small thing missed can mean the make or break off the entire shoot. Whether it’s a one day shoot, a week long car commercial or a couple of months tracking your favorite athlete around the world, the same amount of attention must be applied.
Whether you are producing a print or TV commercial, a set of product knowledge videos for online or a full branded story, we can save you a lot of energy and heartache but most importantly time and money with a guarantee the project comes in on budget.
