We're an enthusiastic band of creative professionals, who love films and filmmaking. We sit at the forefront of digital technology and marketing, but we also understand the traditional values of the sales process. And we really do love film.
Pearldrop was founded in January 2003, and we create video content for internationally prominent brands and individuals as well as major corporations and SMEs. We originally worked mainly in the entertainment sector, where our YouTube videos regularly achieved top-of-the-list status for Most Watched Video of the Day and Month. In 2009, spotting a gap in the market, we decided to bring the lessons we’d learned working in entertainment to the corporate sector, with the goal of making corporate video exciting and approachable. Since then, we have developed long-standing relationships with clients like GlaxoSmithKline, Sage Publishing and more recently Elsevier (two of the world’s largest academic publishing houses), and international high-end shirt retailer Thomas Pink (amongst many others). We deliver a wide range of video content for these types of organisations, from customer-facing viral marketing campaigns to high-quality internal training and health and safety packages.
To develop our key service offering, we have gathered together a core team of skilled professionals and associated suppliers, from freelance crew to high-quality performers and presenters. We are able to provide in-house creative, project-management, filming and editing services, drawing from our large resource of production equipment and knowledge. We can offer high-end graphics creation as well as delivery for web, DVD, mobile and broadcast. We recognised early on that the delivery of our service was based on two factors: 1) the quality of our film production, and 2) the quality of our customer service and project management. With this in mind, you’ll always have a senior account manager as your main point of contact, and we’ll keep you constantly updated with our progress both in person and electronically, through dynamically-updated spreadsheets shared via the cloud.
We're a full-service video production and stills agency. As well as our broadcast-quality video production service, we can shoot studio-quality stills at our base in Stevenage, as well as location photography for your next big event or company profile. All the packages we offer include:
We've invested heavily over the years to expand our collection of the highest-quality filmmaking equipment. We use movie cameras that provide suitable footage for HD broadcast tv playout, and which also provide the highest-quality viewing experience on the web. We use broadcast-quality lighting and sound equipment, and we employ all the same production techniques that you'll find on a Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster movie set (although perhaps our budgets are a little smaller). We'll always do our very best to make you look fantastic, and to provide flattering and lighting and compositions. The day we leave our lights in the car is the day we quit the filmmaking business!
