"James produced an excellent short film for me as part of an Heritage Lottery funded project for New Bells for Old St Martin's in Worcester. James' attention to detail and willingness to work with others is an excellent combination. The film he produced exactly met the brief. " Mark Regan

"James is a fantastic film-maker. He has an insightful and creative approach to his work that allows it to be truly original and captivating. He is a true professional and always easy to speak to. I was extremely impressed with the high quality of work he produced for myself and my husband on our wedding DVD. We loved it so much that we frequently watch it and all our friends and family have commented on what a fantastic DVD it really is. Additionally, on the day he was friendly, professional and not too ' in your face'. I would happily recommended him to any friend, colleague or associate and the value of his work is truly excellent." Megan and Nick Bateman

 

"What a wonderful set of pics from Sunday! Thank you so much for this. You have found some great combinations of family and friends which we shall really enjoy sharing with those concerned. The icing on the cake from a memorable occasion!" Tim Keyes, King's School Worcester

 

"JDA Media's film of mine and Edward's wedding captured not only the highlights of a perfect day, but also the mood and colourful atmosphere. The music he added was both happy and moving and the filming, tasteful and sentimental without it being saccharine. The more I watch it the more I can't believe it's me (as he makes sure all angles are flattering) and also the more perfect the memory of the day becomes. Thank you!" Elizabeth and Edward Seymour

 

"James has produced a number of DVDs for us of varying length and budget. He has always been very creative and flexible in his approach and the results are excellent. He is also good fun to work with!" Sam Setchell, Communications Officer at the Diocese of Worcester

 

We were very happy with our cooperation with JDA Media and with the high quality corporate event videos and images James produced for us. James was just a pleasure to work with. We appreciated his professionalism, creativity, openness to suggestions and his tailored made approach to our event and our expectations. The video that James produced for us enriched our event and was one of the highlights for our guests. We set JDA Media a very ambitious target and deadline and James did not let us down. We would thoroughly recommend JDA Media and hope to work with James again in the future. Urszula Otrebowska, ArcelorMittal

 

"We were all very impressed by James. His creative ideas and incredibly skilful technical ability resulted in a quality piece of work". Paul Kingston, Little Room Music

 

James Atkinson and his colleagues at JDA Media are ideal partners in producing professional DVDs for use in Portsmouth Diocese. With technical skill, creative flair and thoughtful composition they have helped us widely communicate the vision for our Ministry for Mission. Bishop of Portsmouth

 

James has worked with us over a period of two years filming a variety of events and experiences that the school offers.  He has contributed positively in an editorial capacity enabling us to put together a DVD that illustrates the ethos that we wished to portray.  James has a calm approach to his work that enables him to easily disappear into the background.  This is, of course, really valuable in an environment where distraction could easily reduce the quality of the very experience one is trying to capture.   James is at ease with adults and children find him very approachable.  He shows a good understanding of potentially sensitive issues associated with filming.  We are delighted with the DVD that James has produced for King’s St. Alban’s and with the efficiency and responsive service that he offers. Richard Bellfield, Head, King’s St. Alban’s Worcester

 

JDA Media produces media of the highest quality at very reasonable prices. They have produced some first rate work for me and it is a pleasure to work with them. I commend them without reserve. Bishop of Worcester

 

James Atkinson is a much valued free-lance artist who has been employed by the Music Pool to deliver workshops in his specialist area of film making. I have found his skill and style to be ‘top notch’. He is very gifted at getting the children themselves totally engaged in the film making process; he displays a knowledgeable and confident yet affable and approachable personality which is very successful with the children. Catherine Gilling, Artistic Director, The Stonemason’s Tale Project, Hereford

 

We have greatly enjoyed working with James. He has produced an excellent DVD for promotional purposes, showing a keen interest in the school and working hard to ensure the resulting video matched our clear needs and expectations. The children were happy to work with James and he went about all of his work most professionally. During the editing stage James was alert to the issues we raised and responsive to our requests. He has subsequently produced DVDs of our school productions and these have been well received by parents and staff. I recommend James to you most positively. Jim Turner, Head, King's Hawford Worcester

 

(With regards to the filming of the Pantomime at the Swan Theatre) Excellent camera work, clear images and intelligent editing. A thoroughly professional job - and nice people to deal with as well. Chris Jaeger MBE, Chief Executive Worcester Live

 

I was delighted to receive the DVD of the Chichester Festival of Flowers. What a wonderful DVD is is and the lovely music blends so beautifully with the displays and the readings of some of the poems. In all it is a real gem and a perfect permanent record of a very beautiful event from beginning to end. Sonia, Haywards Heath, W. Sussex

 

James had worked for us on several occasions and has produced DVD's for us which have been well received. We have used him for filming, camera work and still photography and his work is of a great standard. He is extremely reliable, great to work with and I would thoroughly recommend him. Alison Godfrey, Chichester Cathedral Restoration and Development Trust

 

"James and Gordon really made our wedding that bit more special, as they were with us from the beginning of the day, right until the end. The photos they took were unique and beautiful. They really did put us at complete ease, and having both natural photos taken and posed photos made the collection flawless. Looking at the photos brings back all of the immense emotions felt on the day, and this means that we will never forget one moment from the best day of our lives. We can't thank them enough!"
