The Meaning of Life...
... how we came about
In the beginning...
In 1984 a friend bought a JVC camcorder as used by Michael J. Fox in 'Back to the future' .
I was so hooked by its capabilities I bought a full size VHS camcorder.
It was so big, I would often be asked 'What TV station are you from?'.
As the years went by I received video shoot requests by recommendation.
I built my own editing deck and enjoyed making videos of Adventure Treks and Ski holidays.
On location, On vacation
Within 24 hours of my first visit to America I had taken part in a sci-fi movie
and had my Video camera stolen, not 20 yards from a 'Baywatch' tower!
Back to the present
To pursue my passion for videography, my computing career provided the capital base to set up Aztec video & multimedia and focus on what I enjoy.
I now run a digital video production studio using the latest 'top end' equipment - including
My background consists of:
(Please don't add up the years - I'm not that old - some experience was concurrent)
- 10 years in Business / Banking (including 'Small Business Advisor' for Nat West Bank).
This extensive business experience helps to understand client needs to enable delivery with pride and professionalism.
- 13 years in computer software design.
This experience facilitates getting the most out of editing and effects software to provide clients with creative results in a short space of time.
- 25 years experience of video
Larger shoots require skills in project management, risk management and logistics.
Past experience in these areas again complement business needs.
With application of these skill-sets, overheads are minimized, with savings passed on to the client.
My ethos in life, apart from a great sense of humour, is to treat others as I would wish to be treated myself.
My satisfaction comes from being creative in achieving impact for the viewer.

You won't regret it!
