Why Salmon Crest Pictures?

Salmon Crest Pictures has noticed a handful of gaps in the production company market, for example:

  • A lot of Companies have moved down to the Midlands from London and have maintained the extortionate London Price Tag

We here at Salmon Crest Pictures are aiming to reduce any costs to the bare minimum so that more people can afford high quality film production without braking the bank

  • Not many production companies within the Midlands employ people with qualifications and adequate experience

Here are SCP we feel that it is team work that makes the dream work, we handpick some very talented people that seriously know their stuff with fantastic qualifications and experience to make sure your film is the best!

  • Many production companies leave you in the dark!

  • You don't know where your money goes?

  • It can be confusing and you don't know what is happening?

  • You are not listened to and you end up with something you didn't want!

Here at SCP we believe that filmmaking should be a FUN experience, our team are very friendly and are keen to listen to your thoughts and ideas.

It's too expensive!

We want to be able to help suit our films to most budgets, if you can't find a package for you send an enquiry and we will see what we can do!

The reason why we may come across as a bit expensive is:

1.) Filmmaking is an expensive process and the money you spend goes into the best talent and equipment we can get!

2.) Our team are very dedicated and passionate about their roles going above and beyond what is expectations of your 'usual production team' we take into account our teams hard work and pay them fairly for their efforts.

The owner of the company that usually works alongside each of our customers is serious enough to have invested 40K into private filmmaking qualifications alone, we invest our money into improving the quality of our films, not improving the quantity in pockets.

I want something very basic, can you do this cheaper?

We can do any job no matter how big or small!

A video for Vine, one shot that your struggling with, a cheap home video using your camera?

Drop us a line, get in touch and we will see what we can do!

What cameras do you use?

Expensive ones... In all seriousness we use the most high quality cameras we can get our hands on, usually we use 4K Cameras such as the black magic, we also have a collection of lenses.

We have a very versatile range including the Go Pro Hero 4 and accessories which can shoot underwater and  extreme  sports.

In Short, every project is unique and we will discuss with you which High Quality camera would suit your project best!

How can you get sound for the wedding day?

The question is how would you like us to get sound on your wedding day?

There is a few options which will be discussed in more detail upon contact, below I will sum up two of the most common ones.

  1. Radio Mics:  we place a number of very small concealable microphones either where speaking will happen or attach them to the people that will be speaking

  2. Boom: We will have a man with a microphone on the day that will record speeches, vows etc

What music can I use?

The answer is anything!

Some music requires a licensing agreement which can be arranged at a cost.

However we are in touch with a very talented an versatile composer who can compose you your own score to go with your video! 

We also have a list of pre-composed track that you can select from.
