About Me

Peter is a professional broadcast cameraman, trained as a sound engineer in the BBC but developed his skills into filming and video production.  He worked for charities for over 20 years and has filmed in many humanitarian disaster and emergency situations overseas. He has a vast experience in the discreet filming of funerals, burials, crematorium and remembrance services

Peter is also a freelance audio-visual engineer supporting clients with their audio-visual needs at conferences and presentations as well as being commissioned to do commercial and wedding videos - iDesign Wedding Videography

This is a very difficult time for all the family and friends.  Filming is always done in a discreet way, very often using small covert cameras which are not obvious or distracting

It is advisable to make others aware that filming will be talking place as some may find it a bit unusual and off putting

The editing of such films is done in a sensitive and sympathetic way. Covering all aspects of the day. Appropriate titles are put as an introduction and music is put at the beginning and end of the video.  Graphics from the 'order of service' is used on the printed inserts and the graphics on the video discs

As a broadcast cameraman and producer I have filmed many different types of funerals and remembrance services and have also filmed in humanitarian disaster situations overseas. I am very familiar with what is needed and how to capture the best

Filming is done using professional cameras, I normally film from the back of the room with some discrete small cameras at the front. Multiple cameras are used during services and then edited together to cover from different angles

A small camera on a steady gimbal is used when moving around

PLEASE NOTE: If filming is required in a Crematorium then permission to film may be needed
