Film Production

Many BBC hours from Prestige.....

Many many hours of British TV have been recorded by our cameras. Mostly shows for BBC1 and BBC2 but also we have shot and lit for Channel 4, Sky and ITV. 

The BBC are very difficult to obtain master quality material from - even when your crew shot the programme, so apologies for the lower picture quality of these BBC programme clips. Worth seeing though!

Once upon a time we produced films on 16mm celluloid........ times moved on. Then we started to shoot on 16mm film and edit on videotape. Video cameras improved and improved until recently "large format" sensors were introduced finally allowing the cameraman to have full control over his image. Videotape has gone too and (hip hip hooray) we now shoot onto little plastic cards with wafer thin memory chips inside. Despite being very easy to drop into a crevasse or storm water drain, this is now a standard format.

At Prestige Pictures however, we like something a little more solid. We record from our digital, large sensor camera onto a small hard drive concealed inside a small picture monitor. This gives us a broadcast quality recording but from a smaller form of camera. But, what we also do is to record a backup onto one of those itty bitty cards.....just in case.  This means you can trust us to capture your pictures, even if our recording device ceases to function.  It's never happened, but you never know!

From our Oxfordshire base, we travel around the world and up and down the country shooting for the world's biggest broadcasters and some of Hollywood's great film companies.  We travelled to Leith in Scotland to shoot an interview with JK Rowling when her third Harry Potter book was topping the best seller list. We drove close to Rye in West Sussex several times to shoot Paul & Linda. Hamburg in Germany was where Paul opened his art exhibition and we were there with the McCartneys to record this too.

Many Hollywood studios come to London's AIR Studios to record the scores for their animated movies. We have been there on many occasions to record the moment. Disney contracted Judi Dench to voice a character for their 45th animated movie in a West End studio....we were there...... as we also were with French & Saunders and Brenda Blethyn, Jamie Lee Curtis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sean Bean and Jim Broadbent and Richard E Grant and Liam Neeson.
