Barney Jones – Creative Photographer & Video Maker

Barney Jones is a talented, creative filmmaker, photographer, video editor, and for me the best part – he’s also my son.  One of the things we share is a love of the outdoors, cinema and filmmaking so it’s perhaps no surprise that he’s a key member of the team.

Barney likes to travel and creates short cinematic ‘filmettes’ of his adventures using his unique engaging style (see example below).  Check out his videos and pictures on instagram.

The Wild Weekenders, Channel 4 TV

We were worked with a TV film crew to shoot some aerial (drone) video sequences for a new Channel 4 TV programme called the “Wild Weekenders”. The scheduled programme date is 14th April 2017 (Good Friday) on Channel 4 TV.

The Wild Weekenders film crew with Adam Buxton and Ashley Hone trekking their way up to Sheeps Tor, Dartmoor.

We filmed the aerial views of presenters Adam Buxton (actor/comedian/presenter) and  “wild camping” consultant,  Ashley Hone as they explored a Dartmoor tor and took in the amazing views.

Award Winning Clients

We are proud of our work and proud of our clients too!  Now 3 of our video clients won industry awards in 2014/15.  Videos are an excellent way of promoting a business or organisation to the wider community including displays at trade shows and award ceremonies.

Our full congratulations go to: –

Paignton Zoo

Lena Video were there to film volunteers help out at Paignton Zoo recently.  The volunteers who were all from the Winners 2000 gym worked alongside the Paignton Zoo keepers to revitalise the Spider Monkey enclosure.

Video for Amtek Plastics

This month sees the release of the Amtek Plastics corporate video.

We worked closely with Mark Amphlett, marketing manager at Amtek Plastics to create a video that explains how Amtek Plastics has the edge on other plastic inject moulding companies and how they support manufacturing in the UK and reshoring.

Amtek Plastics have just added a new warehouse to their business which allows them to keep more stock for their customers.  This video is a time-lapse of the video being filled with stock from the factory.

Video Marketing

Great video is a must for modern businesses and organisations.

It’s practically impossible to meet all your followers/clients in person, so the quickest way to get your message across is by video. Put the video on your website plus all the social media you use including Linked In, Facebook and Twitter – but whatever you do make sure it looks and sounds professional and engages the viewer.

Make the most of video to promote awareness about a business or organisation, products, services and activities.

Good video production companies can guide you through the process, and given your set of requirements, produce a video that works for you.

You don’t need to figure out how the video will be done – that’s our job!

Kevin goes 2000+

Great to see that the video we did for amazing landscape photographer Kevin Cowell, capturing a dramatic coastal sunrise has today clocked up 2132 views on YouTube and is still going strong!

In the video, look out for the fabulous sunrise appearing on the horizon as viewed from Meadfoot beach in Torquay, Devon.  Kevin obviously has a natural instinct for knowing when these are likely to occur.
