We Film So You Don’t Have To | Distant Collaboration

With the success of productions like BBC’s Silverpoint, and the production of films like The Northman, and, of course, Game of Thrones, Northern Ireland is proving itself to be an epicentre of film and video production not just locally but internationally as well. Which is why we film so you don’t have to.

Over recent months, BNL Productions has been working with companies outside the Island of Ireland to capture all kinds of footage and photos, including aerial/drone footage with our crew and team. We are able to capture the footage that the client wants at a fraction of what it would cost if they were to send their own team here. Not to mention reducing their carbon footprint!

We Film So You Don’t Have to: How We Work for International Clients

When producing footage for international companies there are lots of things that we must consider for their video or film production. If you have a project that requires some filming or video production services here and you’re based elsewhere, here are some of the ways we can work with you.

It’s all about Communication!

Communication is key! So firstly one of our project managers will work with you to find out exactly what you want us to capture and how it fits in with your workflow or video production. This also includes making sure that the footage is captured in the formats and frame rates that suit your editors, such as 4k resolution; 25, 50 or 100fps. We find that having video meetings to work through a client’s vision and brief is the best way to overcome any language barriers and to ensure that we are all on the same page.

Getting it Right for You

Making films and videos is a creative process and it can be overwhelming to hand some of your production to a team that is miles away, which is why your project manager (PM) will build a bond of trust with continued communication. Once we have a full understanding of the production, your PM will book in and fully brief all the crew you need from our team of highly skilled and passionate videographers, photographers or drone operators. We choose the crew best suited for your video production needs, who will use our high end video production equipment including multiple cameras, tripods, gimbals and sliders. We will work hard for you and with you to make sure you have all you need and more.

Getting the Footage to You

When filming is completed, we arrange the delivery of the footage through digital transfer or posting of a high end hard drive, carefully packaged and sent by recorded or tracked delivery; it all depends on the size of the files and when you need them. But our job doesn’t finish there. We pride ourselves on working with all of our clients until they are happy, so your Project Manager will make sure you have everything you need and want.

Have a last minute piece of video you want filmed?! 

With our in-house team, including our experienced videographers, we can be available last minute and be able to be onsite within a few hours of a client’s call! All systems go! We can do this because we pride ourselves on being a small yet mighty team with outstanding communication skills. As the saying goes, “team work makes the dream work”!

Get in Touch

Our aim is to increase the international workflow and become the leading video production company in Northern Ireland that can deliver this service. So if your company is based outside the Island of Ireland and you need something filmed or photographed here, reach out to our team to find out more.
