I strive for a damned good result in this industry. I don't settle for ``average” or ``good enough”; I don't do anything by half.
luke sutton videographer photographer profile

Hello there! I’m Luke. My passion for manufacturing industries ignited during my time as a marketing assistant for an SEO firm back in 2011. As part of my role, I delved into the analysis of website traffic for industrial companies, aiming to enhance their Google ranking by optimising targeted keywords. As I sharpened my skills, I found myself captivated by the world of videography, which soon led me to garner the attention of various manufacturing companies.

Over time, I dedicated myself to mastering the art of video production in both manufacturing and corporate settings. This journey has enabled me to cultivate a wealth of expertise and establish a loyal clientele. Today, I take immense pride in my ability to bring manufacturing processes and corporate environments to life through captivating visuals and engaging storytelling.

I am constantly pushing the boundaries, learning new techniques, and staying at the forefront of industry trends to provide my clients with the highest quality video productions. With me, you can expect a solid foundation of knowledge, a passion for excellence, and a commitment to delivering outstanding results for your manufacturing business.

How I work
In my work, I rely on professional cameras, sets of optics, and lighting equipment, along with other essential shooting gear.

I use a variety of professional tools, including cameras, lenses, lighting equipment, and additional filming gear to ensure the highest quality in every project. By leveraging this advanced equipment, I can capture even the smallest details, producing top-notch videos that effectively showcase my clients’ products and services. Recognising the uniqueness of each project, I collaborate closely with clients to understand and exceed their specific requirements.

From the initial concept development to the final post-production phase, I handle all aspects of the video production process with creativity and professionalism. With our state-of-the-art tools and experienced team, I am dedicated to delivering outstanding outcomes that help my clients attain their objectives.

Luke has great creativity and an eye for the unusual. He’s produced some fantastic media for us that has gone on to help us win significant amounts of business, seeing a 50 fold return on investment, if not more in certain instances. A pleasure to work with, and hopefully a driving force in supporting us in capturing our messages and communicating that to our market going forwards.

FAQ's

What kind of price are we looking at?

I’m looking at anywhere from £1650 to north of £2000 for a 3-minute video production with two revisions. For long distances accommodation and mileage is factored into pricing.

I’m interested in video production. What are the next steps?

Send me an email using the contact form here and we’ll schedule a video call. Once we have discussed your needs and objectives, we can decide and plan the specific shoot day and then get to work.

We aren’t exactly sure what we need. Can you advise us?

Absolutely. I’ve worked with hundreds of different clients and always stay updated on the current best trends in the industry. We can happily discuss your requirements in a free video call.

Do you only film machines, or can you film interviews, etc.?

I can film anything. Whether you need a talking head video, an interview, an event video production, or a training video, I can handle it. I’m not limited to just industrial or manufacturing video production.

Do you do photography?

I am a professional photographer and videographer so professional headshots as well as industrial photography is an optional service. Take a look at my photography here.

Can you film aerial shots?

I have both the A2 Certificate of Competency and General Visual Line of Sight Certificate, and many hours of flight under my belt. A copy of my licence can be seen upon request.

What is the process of getting a video production done?

Once we decide on a shoot date, I’ll email you the plan we agreed to along with a deposit invoice.

On the shoot day, I’ll film aerial shots and interviews in the morning (if required) and then office shots and machinery shots in the afternoon.

With all the footage, I will then create a production for your review which will need your input for small changes etc. Once you are happy with the final video, I will send it to you digitally and invoice you.

Healthy expectations

It’s crucial to set realistic expectations when filming in a workplace setting. Unlike a studio, a workplace presents unique challenges such as less-than-ideal lighting and a dynamic environment. Additionally, the people being filmed are employees, not actors, which can impact the footage.

I will do my utmost to capture the best possible footage given these constraints. However, achieving optimal results will also depend on your cooperation and understanding of these limitations.

What do we need to do before the shoot?

It would be a good idea to tidy the factory and manufacturing areas. Remove any items like fizzy drink bottles from office areas, dust from the tops of machines, wipe down panels, and sweep the floors free from manufacturing debris. It’s also advisable to check if your staff is comfortable being filmed. If not, I can work around them on the day.

Do we need to do anything on the day of the shoot?

Ideally, if you can assign somebody to assist me for the day, perhaps a member of your marketing team or a supervisor onsite. I’ll need help with engineers and floor staff to get the right shots we need.
