Mediapreview’s Andy Wicks and his associates have been making videos and screen media products for commercial, public sector and community clients for the past 30 years.
We drill down to find out what the client really needs and make sure it gets delivered to the highest standard, on time and on budget.
We've learnt to work unobtrusively, striking the balance between putting interviewees at ease and getting useable material that shows everyone in the best light - literally and metaphorically!
We have extensive experience of shooting and editing green screen.
On the post-production side, we are creative and speedy - finding the narrative, assembling films that sparkle, flow seamlessly with a light touch and bring out the best in the participants.
Then we know how to get the films seen - on websites, on demand, social and DVD.
If you have a project in mind please get in touch.
“Small Contentments is a beautiful film. I sent it to our Creative Scene team and my colleague Anna said “ I have just watched this video with tears in my eyes. I think this is the most moving thing I have seen (arts wise) in lockdown.”
Sara Sherwood, Creative Scene
“Andy has worked his wonderfully sensitive and creative magic once again to produce a work of beauty and integrity. Small Contentments is a beautifully crafted film that remembers events in Srebrenica by slowly and lyrically unfolding the artwork and writing of our many and varied participants. It is always a privilege to work with someone who understands how to give people a voice.”
Adam Strickson, 6 million+ Charitable Trust
