“It’s always a delight to work with Captive North. They are very adaptable, creative and professional and willing to listen and take on new ideas. They also keep a calm relaxed set when filming, which is important when working with children.”

“No matter how confident or shy our young people were, Captive North were great at including all of our young people in the production of our video.”
– Gavin Evans

“The time spent with Captive North was enjoyable, productive and rewarding. The guys were very patient and positive with the pupils, especially after the twentieth take of a scene. This pursuit of quality material for a quality end product made a valuable impact on the pupils and will transfer to their study in school.”
