Video production for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry
Working with Damien was a superb experience. Throughout a major patient education project, which lasted 2 years and involved filming across the UK, he acted with dedication and professionalism. He was a safe pair of hands and often went beyond the call of duty to get the job done. He made a complicated process easier by being readily available and demonstrating considerable pragmatism. Finally, and most importantly, the end result (8 half hour films tailored to the needs of each audience) was fantastic and will be a key part of our client’s communications portfolio for many years.

Prior to working with Damien we had no experience of filming and thought that shooting the footage for a DVD would simply involve pointing the camera and pressing a button. It rapidly became clear that to shoot a convincing piece would require a great deal more skill, involving a number of different capabilities. Fortunately Damien guided us expertly through the process with a deft touch. His approach was thoughtful, considerate and sympathetic at all times which enabled him to extract the best possible interviews from his subjects. He was thoroughly professional in his work while being approachable and retaining a sense of humour. The whole process was carried out in one week at one location with an air of understated efficiency. We are delighted with the end result which we believe will convey our message with maximum effect.

OPEN Plan has worked with Damien for over two years on a variety of medical-related ethnography studies, across the UK and Europe. During this time we have found Damien to be nothing but a pleasure to work with. His ability to understand our commercial objectives and steer outputs accordingly is second to none. Moreover, the nature of the work often entails spending time in the homes of ill people and Damien is able to work with these individuals in a respectful and guided manner, always exuding professionalism and sensitivity. We find Damien to be an incredibly flexible and professional person to work with, we trust him implicitly and would wholeheartedly recommend his services. Karen Stevens
Working with Damien has been a fantastic experience as he has always been willing to help us and our clients to make the most out of the video ethnography service. The equipment we hired was easy to use and our participants had great fun using the cameras to create video-diary films. The editing of these often unwieldy films … was great and produced some highly informative films. Damien has always been proactive in his approach to working with us, offering solutions and ideas that have exceeded our expectations. Ben Hewitson
