Creative Story Telling for Business and Non-Profits through Video, filming in and around Perth, Scotland

Phil Lidstone may be a master craftsman when it comes to photography, videography and sound production; but his great passion is meeting people.

He operates where the art of inspired storytelling meets the science of digital technology, perfectly capturing the moment, the event and the people who make it.

Clients seem to immediately sense that Phil’s interest in their story is genuine, that they are in good hands and can relax and enjoy themselves.

Time and again, they come simply as customers looking for Phil’s technical expertise, but leave as friends too.

“Phil has now produced three first class small films for us. His willingness to enter into the purpose of the film is inspiring; he really shows an active interest in the work we're doing. His technical ability is second to none. But his greatest selling point is his humanity and friendly and likeable persona, which makes working with him a dream. ”
