The future’s video. Let’s tell your story

From ideas to shoot to post-production, we’ve got the expertise you need.

When we’re making videos, our goal is simple: not many people like having a camera shoved in their face while trying to do their everyday job. But shoving that camera is our everyday job - so we pull out all the stops to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible.

Just as with the rest of the R&B Group, we’re chuffed that our clients come back to our video production team over and over again.

Who will you shoot?

Demand for video content is on the rise. From corporate showreels to awards entries, from TV ads to promos, blog content and consumer guides, our crews are busier than ever.

I’ve lost count of how many Stirling Prize events you have under your belt - and once again you have produced and delivered an outstanding event which contributed towards the huge success on Tuesday. Thank you so much for all your amazing support, guidance and patience in the lead up to the event - and your great support with the BBC’s demands.
- Marietjie Donaldson, event manager, Royal Institute of British Architects

All the bells and whistles

You work your magic and we’ll add ours. Whether you’re practically the next Spielberg, with bags of experience around a shoot, or you’re a video novice, we’ll step up accordingly.

We can help with the whole process, from dreaming up ideas and committing them to a storyboard to the shoot itself and all the post production.

The kit we use varies depending on budget and the nature of the project – although we always strive to give you the best possible result, regardless of money. We have a wealth of specialists on hand too so if you need slick, photo-realistic 2D or 3D animation, stunning aerial stills or video then we can deliver.

Your shoot, your way

It doesn’t matter if it’s a single person crew, a full multi-camera outside broadcast, a helicopter or a drone team, we’ll pitch in with the same professional approach.

  • When it comes to technical conferences, the NHS Confederation must be at the top of the tree. The organisation’s leadership comes together for this event, which we’re very proud to stage for them. Find out more about what we've done.

    “I would score R&B Group 10 out of 10 for their stage set design and full AV production management both pre-event and then onsite. A huge thank you”

  • Although we work all over the country, we admit to a soft spot for some of the clients local to us in the north east. We produce lots of events for Nissan, have carried outamazing projection mapping projects for them and provided event broadcasting and specialist translation services too. The brand prides itself on excellence, which fits in perfectly with our determination to exceed the expectations of our clients , their sponsors, delegates and stake holders.


  • When it comes to business awards events, we’re definitely busy. Champions UK initially came to us for filming work: today, we produce six series of business awards events for them, all for regional papers from locations including Birmingham, Leicester and Derby.

  • Having worked closely with Komatsu UK Birtley since its official opening by the Prince Of Wales in 1987, we have developed a great relationship with the team at this Japanese manufacturer of construction, mining and utility equipment.  

    Today, we provide their main AV hire requirements as well as carrying out permanent installations for them. Last year we helped them to stage a factory event to celebrate some 30 years at the site. How time flies.

    “Professional, efficient and reliable. We have over many years trusted R&B Group to deliver the very best AV service and their video production team gets great results too!”

  • Northumbria likes to pull out all the stops for its students. We’ve worked with them for many years, helping them to host a series of events throughout the year. From dinners to student welcome events, graduation ceremonies to para olympic events. No request is too much for us to deliver, with us regularly transforming their sports hall into the ideal event space.

    “R&B Group are always an absolute pleasure to work with always taking the time to understand our requirements and respond to our brief. This major event of 7,000 attendees needs to run smoothly and R&B always do a fantastic job of delivering staging, lighting, AV equipment and staffing on the day which deliver real impact and within budget. Thanks so much!”

Collaborative creativity

From ideas generation through the entire storyboarding planning and production process, we’ll lend our expertise to bring your vision to life. When it comes to post-production, we usually put together a rough cut and then invite you to come in and work on the final edit, to make sure it’s exactly what you want.

When your mini blockbuster is signed and sealed, we’ll deliver the finished project in your preferred format.

    Glyn is head of video production and has been with R&B for 16 years. He has shot and edited thousands of videos over his career and continues to pull in repeat business from faithful clients.

    He has worked on projects ranging from television adverts to health and safety videos.

    Glyn is without a doubt the most accident prone person you will ever meet but when he’s not losing appendages or injuring himself, you can find him out and about with his family or buying at auctions to add to his vintage games console collection.

    As our lead animator Chris is the guy behind our on screen magic. Also a lecturer at Sunderland Uni, Chris is new to the team but has worked on a freelance basis with R&B over the last few years. His animation skills add a wow factor to everything he produces and he certainly loves a challenge.

    Outside of his role at R&B he juggles his lecturing duties with his fatherly duties and any free time after that we’re pretty sure is reserved for hibernation.
