Echo Video Productions Ltd was formed in 2007 by company directors Andy Gray and Will Beare. Since it's creation we have worked on a number of productions for a large range of different companies in both the public and private sector each one requiring different styles and content according to the client's brief. Our projects range from short, snappy internet marketing videos for companies such as Shell-Clad to full corporate videos for Armida Chartered Accountants and Elsevier Publishers Ltd and simple training videos for Kittiwake Developments Ltd yet each video we create is approached with the same enthusiasm and desire to produce something of the highest possible standard.
To ensure productions of the highest possible standard, all projects are filmed using the company's 720p High Definition JVC broadcast quality camera. The JVC GYHD110 camera films at 25 frames per second which provides a very character rich, organic look compared to other HDV cameras which can give a very bland and flat image. In addition to this, the company owns a Canon 550D Digital SLR camera that can film at full high definition resolution 1080p with a 35mm lens and outputs broadcast quality video. This small, lightweight camera is extremely versatile and is ideal when close attention to detail is required and it also has a fantastic depth of field due to its APS-C sensor. All sound is recorded using Sennheiser audio equipment including wireless tie-clip microphones and shotgun microphone giving clear, quality sound for all dialogue.
Post-production takes place at our studio in the centre of Hove which features two high definition editing suites running the latest computer hardware, a stand alone audio editing suite and a 55” HD preview monitor. All projects are edited using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and with any visual effects and on screen graphics created by Adobe After Effects CS5 and DVD/Blu-ray authoring done using Adobe Encore CS5. By making use of a full HD workflow all of our productions are guaranteed to retain visuals of the highest quality even when down converted to standard definition for DVD playback or online use.
