Who we are

Full service video production

Foundlight is a full service film production company. We can create concepts from the ground up to final completion, or build on existing treatments to bring them to life in the most cinematic and engaging way, and we do pride ourselves in bringing a healthy dose of fun to each and every shoot. Business doesn’t have to be so businessy.

Alan Stockdale

Working for years as a professional photographer and musician, Alan started combining both music and imagery by setting up Foundlight Productions in 2001 providing visual backdrops (VJing) for artists such as Groove Armada, Grandmaster Flash, Mogwai and Roy Ayres, and for brands such as Red Bull, Lucozade and Secret Cinema.

These visual performances were Alan’s first steps in to the world of moving image and real time editing as he mixed live camera feeds and pre prepared footage along with the rhythm of music.

By embracing new technology and buying higher end film cameras to capture content, Alan’s natural progression was to move in to the film making world where he jumped right in creating campaigns for brands such as Smirnoff and Miller, and created music videos for established artists.

Since 2001 Alan has grown Foundlight Productions to be a reputable heavy hitter and his work has been recognised and supported by leading brands in the film industry and is an ambassador for Manfrotto, Sony, Atomos, Schneider Kreuznach and Litepanels and has delivered filmmaking workshops for CVP, Videndum and Sony.

Our Approach

We’re a small team with a wealth of experience delivering high quality complex video production projects. Our flexible process is designed to fit in with clients needs and we can scale up for larger projects or work with a compact and fast moving team to keep things fast and agile.

Pre Production

From the final treatment we work out how best to film and capture the content, what equipment will be needed to achieve the most cinematic results, what music we will use to give the film the right energy and tone. Book in what location, talent, props or extras we may need and then crew up accordingly to make sure all aspects of the shoot are covered.

Filming

Whether you need aerial shots, slow motion scenes, tracking time lapse sequences or action cams attached to speeding cars, we have the kit and the know how to capture footage the best possible way to help tell your story.

Post Production

This is where we bring the edit to life. We edit the footage along with the desired music track (if needed) to give the film the right pace and overall tone. We add sound design and VFX to enhance the visuals further and we grade the footage to give the story the right look and feel, and by combining all of these different elements we essentially craft a film that will determine how your viewer feels while watching it.
