Well 2020, where do you start?!
Let’s face it, we’ve seen nothing like the difficult times of the last 9 months and all the indications are that it’s going to continue for a while yet, unfortunately.
When the going gets tough…
The tough get going. Or so Billy Ocean told us.
With that in mind, faced with nearly every location shoot, exhibition and conference hosting gig getting canned in true Great British Presenters style we didn’t step back. Instead, we continued to invest in a ground-up rebuild of the website.
This added some important new features to help you find the perfect presenter. Fast.
We added a Home Studio filter as some of our presenters innovated by building their own home studio suitable for filming green screen shots, edit-ready for your YouTube, E-learning and Social Media videos.
For more on hiring a presenter with home studio see our blog on the subect HERE
We’ve also been out and headhunted some amazing new presenters many of whom are UK based and multi Lingual…such as Polly who is a native Russian speaker and immediately picked up a job in Moscow though filmed in London for one of the worlds leading PC manufacturers.
We absolutely love Polly …and her wicked sense of humour and Russian language is just a bonus, she’s just a brilliant presenter in English too!
Many clients tell us that being multi-lingual in front of the camera is one thing, but it’s an absolute win-win when the presenter can liaise directly with crew and clients can speak their language – when often the actual producer isn’t able to.
A few others who fall into the multi lingual pool are Veronica, a native UK based Spanish presenter who like Polly pulled in a great studio shoot within a few days of joining.

Who could have guessed that when we were on our booth at Confex in EXCEL in February, that weeks alter it would have become the Nightingale Hospital. Quite literally were we were standing.
It’s been a challenging year which in spite of the setbacks, a whole bunch of great UK and International assignments having materialised and we’re already set for what looks like an amazing 2021, conditions pending.
Early next year we already have lots of shoots already booked in from London, Germany, Netherlands to Johannesburg, let’s just hope clients don’t suffer more disruption to their exciting media plans.
