DoP / Editor

Tim runs our partnership film company Focuspull based out of Marlow. Focuspull is a video production agency set up in 2010 with a clear objective: create videos with impact. Whatever the purpose of the video you are creating, we feel that video has the power to enlighten, inform and drive action. To create impact, it’s important to understand the desired outcome. We can support clients with all elements of video production, from developing a clearly defined strategy, to filming, producing and editing the final film. Focuspull are small enough to be agile and adapt to the needs of our clients. We are able to be reactive to all types and size of video productions by retaining the most current equipment in-house and then scaling up when necessary for each project using our long list of very talented associates and partners.

ARCHITECTURAL VISUALISATION

With an in-house Architect & visualisation team, Bad Studio can produce photorealistic visualisations for Architects, Developers, Interior and Product Designers.  We can model and render your building, scheme or interior to any style you may wish, from photoreal to illustrative.

Should you wish, we can take your proposal and superimpose it into an existing still image, drone footage or any other footage you may have.  If you do not have the footage, we can arrange for our camera team to film your site or buildings and create a series of images for planning or promotional purposes. Our in-house Architect has a wealth of knowledge producing architectural images for planning and promotional purposes and can advise you how best to capture the building or scheme to best aid in your final presentations.
