Jessica and John
"Nicholas is a great guy to work with and very accommodating. He listened carefully to our requests and adjusted the video according to what we wanted exactly as we wanted it! We will definitely ask him to do another video for us should we ever need one in the future."
"Many thanks to Winter Cuckoo Films for my video. It is exactly as I envisioned it; very artistic and yet not expensive. This special touch that makes the difference from being just another mainstream video. I love it."
Veronica and Jonas (North Berwick)
"We were very happy to see the final product in the video and it surpassed our expectations considering our budget. Throughout the whole period of preparation and filming, he was very discreet and yet as it seems vigilant to capture the moment without being intrusive. Well done Nicholas."

Showreels are becoming more and more popular these days, and the resurgence of the "showreel" is something that we are very passionate about. Actors and performers, in general, are now often asked to self-tape auditions and to connect an audition to an actor's particular style or brand many are currently looking to produce their own showreels.
We specialise in editing footage that you have shot yourself and creating showreels that the industry expects from performers these days. If you have showreel ideas but want us to shoot them for you, we can help you with this so you can focus on what you are terrific at; Performing.

Pitching for crowd-sourced funding? A video is without a doubt the best way of standing out from the crowd. A good pitch should be candid and show who you are as a person and the team behind your idea if there is one.
You don't need a long video for a crowdfunding pitch. Although if you want to document your journey as part of a longer piece we can help with that also.
Crowdfunding is an up and coming approach of generating investment for your big idea or project. A successful Crowdfunding campaign through Crowdfunder, Kick Starter or Indiegogo will often have a video as part of the campaign backed up by a solid social media strategy. Keeping these films short and pleasantly to the point is key while demonstrating your enthusiasm for your idea.
Are you in a band or a solo act? Perhaps you and a group of friends just enjoy playing music together and you want to make a video of it?
Either way if you need a music video clip filmed, produced or edited we can help.
We have experience in documentary filmmaking. We enjoy producing factually based films. We have access to professional actors should you need to recreate any scenes or stories within your film. We also have access to professional voice-over artists to help your potential audience through your documentary film.
Do you have a business and you need a promo to get it better known?
We do affordable adverts to promote your business in a way that will inspire your target audience to buy from you.
We have access to professional actors and voice-over artists to really up the quality of your project.
Each project is bespoke, and there are no silly questions. Just get in touch and we can discuss your idea.
