It’s been said that the difference between life and a video is that a script has to make sense, and life doesn’t. Writing a great script isn’t always easy, yet capturing the right tone while conveying your message is something we pride ourselves on and probably why clients continuously hire us to write promo videos, explainer videos, app videos, crowdfunding videos, films and web series.
A great director can be the difference between a video that’s just ok and a video that captivates and converts. At Lamplighter Studios we’ve directed promo videos, crowdfunding videos, films and everything else in between. We have the experience and know-how to capture the perfect tone and performance for your next video project. Watch our showreel here.

No matter how good your shot footage is, it’ll always look dull and lifeless until it’s colour corrected and graded. Whether it’s matching the lighting of shots filmed at different times of the day or creating artistic colour effects to set a mood, colour grading is a powerful tool that can truly enhance the beauty of your final product.
