Moving Image.

Moving Image is all about how our photographers become directors. We can deliver a great print campaign and then go on to direct a short film that they have story boarded in collabaoration with the AD's for your client's you tube channel or website. 

Piggy backing on the print production value for a relatively small amount more, our short films can be viewed by your client's prospective customers - on their tablets, smart phones or whilst browsing online. Now we have convincing reels of work - it is something that should be discussed at the start of every shoot. Check out our Moving Images at: http://www.peterbailey.co.uk/_blog/Moving_Image
