Farsight in December

December has been busy for Farsight with several conferences needing filming as well as two music videos: one for a local health board and one for pop band Bars and Melody. There were three events overall, two being in Cardiff and the other in Birmingham which is the furthest we've had to travel since travelling to Majorca for a wedding shoot two years ago.








For one of the conferences we were asked to stream it live to Facebook, which was achieved using a desktop computer connected to our Panasonic AX-180 camcorder. The audio was fed through the sound desk via XLR cable into the camera. The event has since had over two thousand views online.



The Bars and Melody music video was filmed in a recording studio in Cardiff and was filmed using our trusty Canon 5D Mark IV DSLR camera. The video has racked up over two hundred thousand views online so far and will likely attain much more over the coming months.

Redacting CCTV Footage

Farsight Films can offer a range of redaction services to help those in the corporate, legal, security and local government sectors.

Redacting is the process of ‘blurring out’ or anonymising elements of video material to ensure confidentiality of individuals or other information. Footage typically comes from CCTV footage, but can also come from smart phones or other video sources. We can implement blurring, pixellating or black boxing of any part of the video frame to suit your needs.

Not only that, but we can also include graphical ‘tracking’ elements too, as you can see in the above video. Just ask.

Get in touch to see how we can help.

Farsight gets streaming


Farsight Films was recently commissioned to stream a live event in Newtown, mid-Wales. This was a conference to showcase new developments in technology to assist the work of psychology professionals and was a great success.

All of the presentations were broadcast live via YouTube and then made available afterwards to be viewed online. Kit used: Apple iMac, MacBook Pro, a Canon 5D MkIV and a Panasonic AGUX-180.

This is a new direction for Farsight and we are working to develop our capability in this area to help companies and organisations make the most out of the latest in communication technologies and services.

Farsight re-branding


Farsight Creative is changing its name to Farsight Films. This is to better reflect the direction the business is taking - specifically, a stronger focus on visual storytelling through cinematic filmmaking.

As part of this process, we have invested in new camera equipment, including a Canon 5D MKIV DSLR (for more cinematic shooting) and a Panasonic AX-180 professional camcorder (which is better suited to filming events and presentations). Both of these cameras offer super high-definition recording in 4K if needed.

In addition, we are also able to offer a 'green screen' and tele-prompter service should it be required.

A big thank you to all of our clients who have chosen Farsight to work on their film and video projects in the past. We hope that you will continue to consider our services for any similar projects in the future.

Please see below our latest ‘showreel’ film:
