There’s three strings to our bow here at BTV.
Creating gorgeous video and image content, capturing and broadcasting exciting live events and sourcing the very best film crew for external productions. We’re committed to providing a world-class service to our clients, however you need us to help. Our producer-led approach is where we stand out from the crowd. ‘The Bigger Picture’ is all about the production process. We are totally obsessed with it and, more importantly, making it seamless and a joy for all involved.
From a video and photography angle, the production process always includes a lot of ‘moving parts’. Diaries to be synchronised, locations and talent to be booked, approvals and permissions to be gained and then there’s the paperwork. Lots and lots of paperwork. But we are focused on this stuff. Producer-led means it’s all under control. Which means everyone on our team, from runners to gaffers, sound operators to actors, editors to animators, can all concentrate on one thing. Doing the very best job they can.
It doesn’t matter how great the end product is, if the journey to get there is an absolute nightmare, that’s what people tend to remember long after the plaudits, likes and shares have subsided. Of course we make awesome content. But The Bigger Picture lies in the process.
Visual content production is where it all starts. Branded film and image that goes anywhere and everywhere. Live action, animation, CGI and photography all lovingly made with your business goals, and your sanity, in mind.
Capturing your event on video can open it up to a global crowd. From real-time live streaming to fast turnaround highlights filmed, edited and published the same day. We can mobilise quickly and amplify your event through the power of video.
Our little black book is not so little. It’s massive. We’re friends with some of the best in the business. Organising a team of video pros can be daunting, so let BTV take the strain. If you’re looking for crew, we probably know who. We’ve put the right people into productions for global brands like Fox Sports and Sibos.
Jake and the team at BTV film have been a delight to work with over the past 3 months. Jakes attention to detail, professionalism, and ability to create great media has to be commended. Barrett film has produced 4 videos for Aceleron in a very short space of time each of them very different and each of them meeting the brief. I would highly recommend Jake and his team, and I look forward to working with them again in the near future.

We can't rate this company highly enough. They are so organised and took our brief and ran with it. They offered creative advice and made the process of making our videos painless. They are extremely professional and a pleasure to work with.
–Jennie Sanders | Dains
Jake and his team are super professional and a dream to work with. They just "get" what you're trying to achieve and then exceed everyone's expectations with their final output... all while having fun along the way. Jake is also super responsive so projects run really efficiently. I look forward to working with them on more projects in the near future!
–Natalie Hunt | WPR
When you find a production company as hardworking, focused, talented and responsive as these guys, you know the end product is going to be extraordinary. The amount of added value the team bought to our project was incredible, within a few days of working together they felt like an extension of our own team. The end product was delivered on time, on budget and beyond my own expectations. Already looking forward to working with them again.

Worked with Jake for a number of years, he is a pleasure to work with, extremely well organised and his Creative Direction ensures every project is delivered to the highest quality.
–Simon Morris | COAL
When we partnered on a recent commercial, Jake immediately understood our brand and what we were trying to achieve, he questioned things where he thought we could do better and nudged us in the right direction when we needed his advice. We gave Jake a brief and a budget and he told us what we could and couldn’t do, and delivered a commercial far beyond our expectations, turned around in record time. We are all thrilled with the output. I loved working with Jake and highly recommend BTV.
–Natalie Pejovic | Open Study College
Absolutely great experience working with Jake and the team! Perfect professionals throughout - with a tight turnaround from start to finish, their planning, creativity, organisation and attention to detail was fantastic! A great pleasure to work with and certainly will be doing again! Thank you so much!
–Vicki Short | Hunter Price International
I've known and worked with Jake for over 7 years now on many film projects, and every single one has been a pleasure. Not only are the team hardworking and ambitious in delivering the films, they are extremely knowledgeable and creative in the planning and post-production also. BARRETT understands that a film needs to look high quality and drive tangible business results. They are very versatile and can produce anything from TV adverts to social media films . I would highly recommend Jake and BTV for any type of film or video project.
–Lauren Bromley | Mind Made
I contacted BTV on a Sunday to turn a project around for the following Tuesday. Jake & the team listened and took immediate action, delivering what I can only describe as remarkable. We loved the results so much so we quickly contracted him for another film which was to be delivered for Wednesday, which again was exceptionally delivered. I would never hesitate to work with Jake again.

We recently embarked on a case study project with Jake and the BTV team. From the minute we embarked on the project, Jake and the team were great. They explained the process fully and made us feel comfortable the whole way through. Once we had set up the plan of what we wanted to do, I introduced Jake and the team to our three customers. Jake and the team then liaised directly with our customers and arranged pre-calls with them to discuss the filming day, answer any questions and get a feel for the information that would be discussed. We had to re-schedule a couple of the filming days due to covid-19 but Jake and the team were flexible and adaptive. From filming to reviewing, Jake and the team have made everything super simple and guided us through the process. We now have some fabulous case study videos and some social media snippets that we can't wait to use. Thanks again.
