The filmmaking industry has definitely seen a major rise in filmmakers and up-and-coming cinematographers, but once in a while, a few serious ones consider putting up their own film production company. This was the case of The Interesting Film Company and was set up by Tim Tate, a multi- award-winning film maker and best-selling author. Like every form of commercial art, filmmaking can be both fulfilling as a craft and as a lucrative business.
At first we knew what resources were need—including the right cameras, lighting and sound, music, and stock footage but didn’t count with the software nor skills to edit the film so we hired a post production company that kept up with trends and new technology. After all, the effectiveness of any video campaign depends on the element of storytelling combined with the latest technological innovations.
Years later, the company began to grow and had the ability to build the team—including directors, videographers, writers, editors, stylists, crew, production equipment, etc. It was now complete with everything to help deliver our vision to video.
However, a video is only as good as the team behind it. The company is now based around a small core of dedicated film-makers who have learned their craft within some of the most prestigious production companies and documentary teams in British broadcasting: Yorkshire Television, 666 Casino games, the BBC, Granada and Carlton Television; First Tuesday, Network First and The Cook Report.
