it’s in our blood


Your story is important, so we want to make sure we help you to tell it right. That’s why as we plan your documentary video collaboratively. 

Pushing creativity to its limits we are always full of ideas and never rest until we get it bang on. Before we wheel out the equipment, however, we will storyboard our thoughts and talk with you about scripting, budgets and a film production schedule – this will be our bible, and we will stick to it like glue throughout the assignment, delivering to your expectations and beyond!

When we shoot your documentary film, our talented filmmakers will use the latest in video technology to capture it. Wherever possible, we will stay on the periphery and simply capture your business in the most natural way possible. And, when it comes to editing your documentary film, this is where the real magic happens… We lay down the perfect soundtrack and effects, we emphasise the effects of light and depth of field injecting emotion and really bringing your brand story to life.

We are really passionate about our work and very proud to help businesses tell their story through our film making – it makes us really happy! Take a look at the documentary films we’ve produced for our clients and you’ll no doubt see our passion in our work.

Producing a good documentary film

As a long-time documentary videographer and someone with a great deal of experience when it comes to producing all sorts of video content, we are often asked what makes a good documentary film. Some say it’s the editing or cinematography and other artistic elements, while others believe it’s the story. Personally, we believe all of them are essential in creating a good documentary film. By combining these vital elements, videographers and filmmakers like us are able to come up with something that will pull your audience in and leave them glued and spellbound on their seats.

To produce top-notch and high-calibre documentaries, high-quality technical equipment, including state-of-the-art cameras, microphones, and editing equipment, is absolutely needed. Even if you have killer filmmaking and editing skills, it can be difficult to pull off one heck of a documentary video if you don’t have the right equipment to back you up.

At Life is Art, we are proud to tell you that we have them in spades. We make sure to invest in the best audiovisual equipment to ensure that we can produce a documentary film that fully encapsulates our client’s vision and allows them to tell their story. We have years of practical experience when it comes to using these essential documentary video production equipment, which enables us to produce high-quality films all the time.

We also have the best team to transform your vision into reality. As we mentioned earlier, our videographers are experts at producing films of all kinds. Whether you’re aiming for something educational, expository, or artistic, our team understands what needs to be done to capture the core of your story and transform it into a film that will captivate your audience.

While producing video may look simple and uncomplicated at first glance, it requires more than just setting up a camera and taking footage. As we have discussed before, extensive preparation is needed to ensure that everything will go without a hitch. So when you obtain our services, expect us to have a sit-down with you and discuss the central message of your video, scriptwriting, storyboarding, and other essential matters.
