About Karma

We are a London-based creative video production company offering a complete creative film and production service to agencies, production houses, broadcasters and direct to brand. We make great films. Great films keep our clients happy. Happy clients keep us doing the job we love.

From prime time television programming, to global event coverage and brand films for some of the world leading blue chip companies :- including Red Bull, Ford, Yahoo, Unilever, Vodafone and Microsoft, our expertise and devotion to quality and service is second to none. With over 25 years of experience  in TV, advertising, social media and marketing, our films are always on brief, on brand, on message and on time.

As a full service end to end production company, Karma have everything you could imagine in house. We have cameras, edit and graphic suites, grading suites and an arsenal of toys to play with.  Most importantly though, we have a team who can make anything possible and love what they do.

We work continuously to ensure the output stays fresh, creative and – well – just damn good. Oh! and when it comes to camera formats, we like to play with the big boys so if it’s good enough for the movies, then it’s good enough for our clients, we have 4k covered.

We believe that our job is not just to make great films but to make the entire production process as easy as possible for our clients. We do the hard work so you don’t have to. It seems our approach is working, because our clients keep coming back.

Well that’s how karma works, you see?

We cover everything from commercials, product launches and events to experiential filming. We do beautiful brand films, quick reactive news pieces for social media and hidden camera reality filming. We really can do anything.

Our broadcast client base ensures we are always at the cutting edge of technology so that we are always leading the pack not following it.  Production and creative teams share thoughts, ideas and techniques gained from our different filming experiences and that means we stay fresh and inspired. It also means that when we present a concept, our clients can be confident that it’s original, well planned and achievable.

Our commercial work includes Nike, Puma, Redbull, Usain Bolt 3D, Revolution Cocktails, Lipstick Queen, Bodyshop and Funky Pigeon.

We use our expertise in TV, brand and commercials to ensure that the message you want to get across is what ends up on screen. Because we have everything in house to make great films, we are extremely competitive as unlike many of our competitors, we don’t have to hire people or equipment for any part of the process.

We must be on the right lines as we are trusted by clients including: City&Guilds, Unilever, Metapack, Vodafone, 02, Red Bull, Funky Pigeon, The Greenwich Hotel, Unicredit, The Royal Albert Hall, The Royal College of Music, Land Rover and hundreds of small businesses who are the backbone of Britain.

Just because we are good doesn’t mean we are expensive.

We can live stream your event from anywhere to your website or chosen CDN. If there is no internet availability on site we bring our own, we use a bonding solution with cellular mobile phone and satellite technology to ensure we can send high quality High Definition Streams. We make sure the stream is available across all platforms and devices, that means that it works on your tablet, or laptop, desktop or internet enabled TV, however you are connected.

Live streaming is an affordable and effective way to publicise, communicate or and deliver your event, allowing you to reach a much wider audience and connect with the other people who would like to see what you are doing but who can’t attend the event.

We have been producing and filming for a long time so when it is something a bit out of the ordinary, we are the 1st call for brands and broadcasters alike. We love a challenge and always find a way to deliver the idea. Our DOP’s really know their stuff.

We shoot green screen on every scale, from a talking head to full sized 1000ft stages. We film slow motion on Red Epic, Phantom and Photron, this gives us the ability to film up to 3500 fps. We film in cars, in planes, in helicopters, on boats, under the water. Pretty much anywhere you can get a camera, we can make it work.

We have steadicam, cranes, drones, fixed rig minicams and remote heads. We are based in London, we travel extensively world wide and are very familiar with shipping, carnets and local customs. We have a great range of kit in house, beautifully maintained and prepped before it leaves Karma. Karma really does care.

We are happy to share the knowledge we have built up over many years so if you have any questions on filming anything a little out of the ordinary, we are here to help.

Our multi camera fleet is led by OB1 (who else would choose to lead?) a 6 camera Mercedes Sprinter that seats director, producer, engineer and sound mixer. The truck has an on board vision mixer, recorders, graphics and edit facilities. It is a 2k fibre truck and can go out with either normal broadcast cameras or as a shallow depth of field digital cinema truck. It has multiple outputs and can simultaneously broadcast, record and stream.

Where space may be restricted or you want the team in the room with you or you even want to take the team abroad, we have 2 PPU sets to the same spec.

With the advancement of technology these versatile and quickly deployed solutions are unbelievably cost effective for broadcaster, agencies and events. A 3  camera Outside Broadcast can cost as little as £3000.

Our TV and video production facilities are versatile, well-equipped and ever-evolving. From our home at Twickenham Studios we can provide studios of up 3,000 sqft and greenscreen including a 24ft portable greenscreen for location shoots. We have end to end production covered in house and provide any part of this facility to broadcasters, agencies and production companies.

Our kit room has all the cameras and specialist equipment to make the shoots as slick as they can possibly be. Our post production facilities have all the latest software from Avid to Adobe Creative Cloud. Grading is performed to broadcast standard using DaVinci Resolve, which allows us to cater for all formats from web to 4K and everything in between! The suites we use are very fast and handle 4k HD footage in real time.
