We find stories, information and contributors for all media platforms. Whether it is an interview for a science documentary, or a magazine piece on the latest celebrity gossip, our experience in handling a wide variety of briefs allows us to provide in-depth and accurate research on any topic.
We provide full crewing services including production managers, directors, camera/sound technicians and stills photographers. All our coordinators are fully bilingual (Jap/Eng).
When Japanese crew are unable to travel to Europe, we film on their behalf and deliver rushes by FTP for same or next day download in Japan. We also offer a live streaming service whereby clients are able to monitor and even direct shoots remotely.
From English manor houses to the deserts of Africa, we use our extensive experience, and close ties with established location companies, to find the perfect location for any project.
Whether it’s a period musical instrument, an old newspaper, an 18th Century dress or a police patrol car, we can source hard-to-find props and a wide range of costumes.
We understand the importance of finding the right “look” and offer fast, accurate casting for every budget.
In addition to our in-house facilities, we can supply an extensive range of camera equipment from broadcast hire companies in the U.K and Europe.
As well as working with our co-producers to add content to their scripts, we can call on the creative vision of our freelance directors to develop original ideas and screenplays based on our clients’ needs.
We source material from hundreds of photograph and video archives across Europe. Due to our long-standing connections we can offer preferential rates with many archives, including BBC/Getty.
We work with the best post-production facilities and technicians in London. For those working on a tight time-frame, rushes can be uploaded by FTP and made accessible within hours anywhere in the world. Satellite playout facilities and full editing services are also available.
We provide small scale market research for Japanese clients who wish to gain an insight into market trends or companies operating in the UK and Europe. We can help design surveys, conduct face-to-face interviews, and compile information from online sources.
Linguistic support and Consultancy
As an independent Japanese media production company based in London, we are ideally positioned to offer on-hand support to UK producers creating Japan-related content, helping to navigate the cultural differences and linguistic hurdles inherent in international projects.
