About us

Dashing Bear Productions is a friendly, honest, and transparent video production company that make high-quality films and videos which help gain results for our clients. Having moved from London to Gloucestershire in 2018, Dave Ashdown set up Dashing Bear Productions to produce videos and films for south-west businesses to help them grow. We have a wide variety of clients that love working with us.

We pride ourselves on the high standard of our work and want our clients to be excited and proud to share the films that we have produced for them. We never produce films to fit a need in our portfolio, and will never approach a project by jumping straight in with a creative. Instead, we will always take the time to do our research and understand your needs and what you want to achieve. Once we have this insight, and only then, do we think about the creative approach. Ultimately we make films especially for our clients, and this is why you will never see a Dashing Bear Productions logo on a client's film.

The process

The first thing we do, way before the cameras even start rolling, is to find out about you and your business. We will take the time to understand what you want to achieve through video, and who your target audience is. 

 

We will take the time to understand the company's tone of voice and what your budget is as well as discuss any ideas that you have for your project.  After this, we will produce a document we call the 'creative idea' and use this as our guide for the production.

Initial briefing

Pre-production

One of the most crucial stages of the process, as this is where the plans are formed and put into place for the entire project. 

 

From working out the style and concept of the video to booking crew, talent and locations and preparing call sheets and risk assessments, we'll work with you to ensure your project runs smoothly.

Whether it's filming or animating, we love bringing the creative idea to life. On a filming day before we press record, we'll run through the schedule with you and set up all the equipment.

 

Then it's lights, camera, action!

We love it if clients attend filming sessions to see the process, and more importantly, be involved in any decisions.

Production

Post-production

This is where the video comes together. We use the latest Adobe editing software including Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop to create your video.

The creative team strive for perfection, and we will work with you over the agreed number of drafts to cut and deliver the film to a high standard, ensuring that we hit your key messages.

Areas covered

We are based in Stroud, Gloucestershire and cover the surrounding areas such as Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cirencester, Swindon and Tewkesbury to name a few. We also cover the south-west and the Midlands, but are happy to travel further afield if required.
