About Our Film Production Services
We shoot films and product sequences for commercials and online advertising campaigns. Our expertise is in close-up work and product beauty. We shoot daily with an incredible team of in-house talent and specialist stylists from across the advertising and film industries.
We offer full service packages that can fulfil a range of production requirements, from pure product beauty and slow-motion to macro photography. We can shoot single shots to entire films and commercials, all from our studios in London's bustling Covent Garden.
What do we do?
Our specialism is shooting product, food and dring based content for TV commercials, digital OOH and social campaigns, working alongside advertising agencies and production companies as well as working directly with corporate clients.
We shoot a wide variety of products at Packshot Factory, including specialist food and drink sequences and electronic products including computers, tablets, mobile phones, and home appliances.
Another interesting area we cover is 'in-camera' effects such as splashes, powder explosions and liquid pours; we have even been known to blow up the occasional Death Star! A little more down-to-earth, we film more everyday items like watches and jewellery, and cosmetics, as well as 'how to' films and a number of end frames and pick up shots for comping into existing advertisements.
Crew & Experience
As filmmakers we understand the importance of close teamwork; our crew shoot product beauty, food and drink for a living. We are incredibly knowledgeable of our craft and passionate about all aspects of the production process, with a genuine interest in our clients’ needs.
When we work with stylists and specialist technicians, we choose experts and companies at the top of their game that we have ongoing relationships with and this is what we believe makes our work stand out.
Filming products is not always straightforward but when you choose Packshot Factory you are not only getting a competitive deal on crew, studio hire, and equipment. Most importantly, you are buying our experience; 30 years of photographing and filming products and table-top content on a daily basis is a significant wealth to draw upon.
Our Studios and Equipment
Our Central London studios are fully equipped and ready to shoot all manner of products and effect sequences. With our in-house lighting and camera equipment we are ready to shoot at very short notice, making us an extremely flexible option.
We shoot on the latest Red Ranger Helium 8K, with a DMSC2 35.4-megapixel CMOS sensor. This means we can shoot with post cropping in mind and allows shooting for multiple aspect ratios simultaneously, great for creating a largervariety of social content without any compromise on quality. Our red can simultaneously record in Redcode Raw alongside Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/HD enabling quick transition into post production.
Our 170m2 two-floor studio is equipped and kitted out with kitchen facilities, ceiling rig, cyclorama and the ability to shoot with blue or green screen. We also provide water tanks, turntables, and conveyors and we are able to assemble specialist rigs at short notice. The studio can be transformed into any scenery imaginable. With street-level access, the studio can accommodate set builds and motion control rigs, offering the ultimate combination of speed and precision for filming, as well as specialist ovens or any other heavy-duty equipment.
