Elements of Pristine Production

The Elements of Production

Cream Of The Crop

With an articulate internal team and a network of reliable freelancers, from solo shooters to full blown skeleton crews, we’re not short of the right talent for the job. We’ve been there, done that and got the t-shirt.

Let’s Roll

Here’s where that pre-production pays off. It’s essential that this phase of the project is not only done right, but conducted with enjoyment. Be it running alongside athletes at an Triathlon or in a skyscraper in london, we are adaptable and wise in the ways of production and there isn’t much you can present us with that we’ll shake our heads at.


Great Talent + Great Kit

Equals great results.

We have equipment in house to provide turn key solutions for most scenarios. When the project requires what we don’t already possess, we have close relationships with rental houses up and down the UK and globally. Whether you need a simple light stand or a fully-motorised vehicle-mounted camera system, we can outfit your production without the faff.


Locations, Talent And Props

So we’ve got ace crew and top end kit, now we need the right locations, the experienced talent and the highest quality bits and bobs to gel it all together.

Astor hire freelance talent, book stunning locations and source the snazziest props for social, corporate and commercial projects on a regular basis, because at the end of the day, whatever goes in front of the lens needs to look right, sound great and stand up to the rigors of the industry.

Our Production Process – From Start to Finish

What is the ‘Production Process’?

So, you’ve had an awesome idea, you’ve planned it down to a T and it’s time to enter the production process. The Production relies on a few key elements – those being solid pre-production, a crew that is articulate, reliable and creative, and the right tools for the job.
Astor has a diverse internal team and we can handle about 99% of the projects that you throw at us. However, in the event that we need a little bit more firepower, we have access to a network of freelancers that we work with on a regular basis for those larger projects.
