The Digital Filmmaking Handbook by Mark Brindle

What Do Our Clients Say About Us?

Every comment or feedback we have had on the DVD is that it is the best DVD we have ever had so well done! The clubs particularly like it as shows both sides of the cart and plenty of close-ups. Sales are looking good up about 12% on 2014 already. Dave.

-Dave, Bridgwater Carnival

I think it’s fair to say that without your help we’d have struggled to show the films in their original format. Your patience and knowledge saved the day... thanks once again for helping make this such as successful event. Your calmness and support were much appreciated.

-Mandy, Ian and Val, Ilfracombe Film Festival

G'day Mark and the Maniac Films crew. Many thanks for the all the additional editing work done on my films and the post production final polish, stoked with 'em and people seem to be enjoying them. See you with the West Africa and Tasmania films soon . . .

-Julian Wicksteed, Angler Walkabout

Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for a great efficient service. The gear you supplied me really helped me create the look I wanted, and I'll be sure to recommend you to others.

-Scott Coulter, DS Media

Excellent work on the videos guys. Thanks again for all this – its fab stuff.

-Jason Miller, Tinderbox

Thanks again for all your help last summer with the kit hire and troubleshooting - The trailer has been posted online and have had great feedback about the look, and questions regarding the kit - I will be sure to mention Maniac Films when I respond.

-Jake Hawkins, Charmed Apocalypse

I think you saw it on twitter – but just to let you know Mum & Dad & Ben very pleased with their film (Boat Stories Young Fisherman). Ben said he couldn’t understand how we’d done it – with what we got... So hurrah – well done!

-Jo Stewart Smith, Boat Stories

Thanks again for your prompt and professional service. I look forward to hiring from you again in the future.

-Jack Bamford

The shoot went really really well. Perfectly in fact. It was a long hard few days but I'm really happy with what we shot. Just wanted to say a big thank you to you both for a great efficient service. The gear you supplied me really helped me create the look I wanted, and I'll be sure to recommend you to others.

-Scott Coulter, DS Media

Just wanted to write and say, I've only rented from you guys twice so far but both times i've been super impressed - they were very last minute and you handled my kit request and questions with ease. (Already had two great opportunities to share my experience of Maniac with those clients).

-Adam Johnson

At very short notice we contacted Maniac Films to hire a selection of lighting for some filming we had planned - we were very pleased and impressed with the service, delivery and advice received. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

-Julie, Cobham Composite Technologies

Thank you again for the excellent work, the video is sitting nicely on our new website page now.

-Steve Tucker, All Star Jazz

Hi guys the video's awesome! Thank you so much. It looks great. The whole video is exactly what I wanted and more. You guys have nailed it for me and within 24 hours the video has half paid for itself. So let's start thinking about the next! ;) Thanks to you both for working so hard on it and tweaking so many bits and pieces. You've been great! Cheers!

-Mark Daniels, Ultimate Bublé

Mark, Thanks for your excellent work editing today. Look forward to seeing the vids up and my mugshot next to Paxman's! Martin.

-Martin Cassini

A big thanks to you guys yesterday for cracking on and getting everything set up. The shots look great and you’re both a pleasure to work with and get on well with the clients too.

-Colin Martin, Colour247

Thanks for this and for supplying the gear. It was a great shoot! We may well need to do a 'pick up' shoot and if we do, i'll be back in touch to get some more gear from you as you have been really helpful! The back pack was the understated hero of the shoot, great that you supply those as not many places do

-Christopher Whitlow

After finding we were short of two key items a day before the big event, I wanted to give you a big thank you for sorting everything out to make sure we had the equipment we needed when we really needed it. I really appreciate the way you guys went the extra mile to make sure we had everything we needed to do the job. The equipment was excellent and the service fantastic. I have no hesitation in recommending you to my colleagues or anyone else. Thanks again - it made all the difference.

-Chris, Impossible Arts

The filming went really well thanks. Long!! but it all went well and some great footage taken. We will definitely be calling you up again for further kit hire!!

-Michelle

Everything's arrived and is absolutely fantastic. Thank-you once again for a great service.

-Oli Chopping

I would like to say though that your service was great and that I will most certainly be using your company again.

-Pantelis

Thank you for your 'virtual tour' of St. Annes Chapel in Barnstaple. It is exactly what I wanted, the casting of the local actress and the experienced actor was more than I could have expected for the budget. The narrative gets so much information across in such a short space of time.

-St Annes Chapel film thank you, Barnstaple Town Council

The video is fantastic and we've managed to make it work in the (powerpoint) presentation. Thanks for all your help and speedy turnaround.

-J Miechowicz, Actavis

The kit was terrific—really happy with the shots we got, and looking forward to starting the edit! Thanks again for all your help, will definitely be using Maniac again in the future

-Callum

I just wanted to say a heartfelt thanks to you both for your professionalism, talent and cooperation during the re-building of this DVD. I feel we have raised the bar and the DVD is a much more professional and enticing package thanks to your work. I particularly like the fact that Stu listened to me all the way and interpreted what I wanted without any question. best regards

-David Gilliam, New Justice Films

A BIG THANK YOU for your patience and support! You remain a star in my firmament! :)

-M Cassini, Fit Roads

Could I just say thank you for the help and the advice you gave me and my cameraman Sam regarding using the PMW 200 camera. We found the camera a delight to use and the picture quality was amazing. Just got to edit it now!.

-Mark, Indochina Films

I've downloaded it and I've watched it - it's fantastic. Thank you again for the production of our films - they are fantastic. Many thanks for help and prompt response - much appreciated.

-R Piechocki, University of Bristol

Gosh I've been meaning to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for the brilliant rig hire! The day was EPIC and it went swimmingly. I'm about to mention your company on facebook as i know a lot of London videographers who would LOVE your company!

-Nicky O'Dell

Thanks for all your help over the past few weeks. The kit has worked flawlessly and has shown me just how important it is to have a remote follow focus and wireless video on set. I don't think I could do another film without them!

-Cameron Browne

Mark worked hard to deliver a quality result within the constraints that we specified. When our requirements changed late in the day he helped us to salvage the project.

-Pete Thompson, U4ea networks

Just a quickie to let you know that all the DCP films that you supplied played well, no problems encountered at all and they looked fabulous. Thanks for all your help with this. The weekend Film Festival exceeded our expectations. We’re just waiting for the final numbers but we anticipate that they’re better than expected. Kind regards

-Amanda, Ilfracombe FIlm Festival

Thanks again for arranging that kit for me on Wednesday Just wanted to write and say, I've only rented from you guys twice so far but both times i've been super impressed - they were very last minute and you handled my kit request and questions with ease. (Already had two great opportunities to share my experience of Maniac with those clients)

-Adam Johnson

Your customer service was nothing short of excellent, very helpful and willing when it came to suggestions and ideas. Keeping in good frequent contact and even helping out with the insurance. You made our first equipment hire experience a relatively worry free one We will most definitely recommend Maniac films to others and of course will contact you when we need to rent again.

-Ben Radford

Hi Mark, Thank you a lot about the work you are doing for us; I see how many difficulties we had on this project, so thank you very much.

-Claudia Oldani, Content Partners

Thank you for sending the final version of the video. It was fantastic and excellent work - well done . I also would like to thank you for working with me and patiently adjusted the video in our requirements. As mentioned previously one of the most professional and fantastic group I work with is your video crew. Many thanks to you all for all your hard work and support.

-Fai Tila, University of Bristol

The shoot went really well and the kit was great. Thanks again for all your help, you'll come highly recommended from us.
