Mind Well asked us to try to explain and illustrate the complexity of the human brain in a simple form and in less than 90 seconds. They were very happy with the result.
A show reel of some of the authors we filmed for Topping & Co Booksellers and their Autumn Book Festival, that lasted for nearly three months.
A Saturday in September, eleven Bath Rugby players came to the Bertinet Kitchen to learn how to bake, make basil pesto, cook pasta, assemble a smoked haddock chowder and finish it all off with a French apple tart.
Every year, the Great Bath Feast asks restaurants to do something spectacular. The highly acclaimed Circus Cafe and Restaurant invited us to document an unforgettable Portuguese evening with the legendary David Eyre at the helm.
William Curley, the famous London based chocolatier and pâtissier, melted 10 kilograms of chocolate at the Bertinet Kitchen.
A royal mess with delicious results. We jumped at the opportunity to film, of course.
Lucas and Weston, the Business Brokers, requested a short introduction and a teaser to their, always full, Buy a Business seminar. The brief was to film and edit, but not to disclose too much of, their specialised knowledge.
Once this short intro was on their website, all of their seminars amassed a waiting list.
Nathan Outlaw came to us from Cornwall for the Great Bath Feast and treated the Bertinet Kitchen to a feast of oysters and fish.

Below are some of the companies we recently worked with.

After filming ex-SAS Chris Ryan
Hello, I'm Jeanette Weston, owner of Magus Studio. Hover over the orange rings to see more.
I'm from Stockholm, Sweden, where I studied architecture, fine arts and the history of art.
I travelled the world extensively through various jobs. My previous work has involved drawing plans for new hospitals, conducting cultural tours worldwide, designing for Bulthaup (the German kitchen maker), handling near priceless paintings, translating for the UN, running a gallery, advising on art collecting and holding seminars on how the brain works.
I settled in the UK just over 20 years ago.
Here I ususally sit overlooking Bath Abbey in all its glory, designing, editing, re-touching...
Or, I can be seen on the road, running around with my various laptops, tripods and cameras.
When I don't work, I seek out marine environments and enjoy being windswept and salty.
You spotted me! Shooting the London Fashion Weekend, for Spring/Summer 2015.

© Ki Price, Cheers for the pic!
My favourite camera at the moment is the
Canon 5D Mark III.
The two lenses I can't live without:
Canon 70-200 f2.8L II USM IS,
Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L II USM.
Yes, after years of being a Nikon girl, I have finally deserted.
My equipment on the road is deliberately kept to a minimum for a quick rig and with as little entourage as possible. But, should you wish to use a load of kit, stylists and runners, that's fine too.
Tools of my trade:
I started off with Design Works, then Macro Media (yes, this was before time began and a simple graphic took a day to make) and now have been using Adobe software for over 20 years. That means I have the knowledge and skills to work fast and meet tight deadlines without freaking out.
All my motion graphics, editing, compositing and sounds and so on, are done on a souped-up, custom built, PC with twin monitors and a Wacom tablet.
I would like to think that style will always win over mainstream trends and fashion.
Over thirty years of working on various creative tasks have shaped a fine tuned sense of what can be done on budget, on time.
Whether it is an industrial setting, a chicken farm, a stately home, famous jewellers or a HM prison, I feel at home in many different environments and can work around most obstacles.
Favourite environment when off work: in the sea/on the beach.
