What our clients say

“Ebor Vox was the main community celebration of York’s 800th anniversary of the granting of our city charter.  We were working with the BBC, Benjamin Till, composer, Stephen Burke, producer, and over 30 community choirs, brass bands and 30 schools and youth groups to create the event.  With over 1000 people involved and as one of the centrepieces of our York800 celebrations it was important that we charted the process as well as recording the massive outdoor choral performance.  John had worked with us before and he was our first choice as a trusted pair of hands at the helm of the film shoot to capture this unique experience.

As always John was a true professional and a joy to work with.  He worked around the other professionals involved in the project, negotiating effectively to make sure the film showed all of the participants, their progress as well as the final event.  He did this with patience, artistry and quiet determination.  We were all thrilled with the final edit and it has been put into out York800 time capsule and our official city archives to ensure that this one off event will have a legacy throughout the ages.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to others working across both the community and professional spheres as John very quickly picks up the brief you give him, adds his own improvements and supplies a final product that exceeds expectations.”

Gill Cooper, City Centre and Market Project Manager

“City of York Council used John to produce a video to support a major transformation programme as the Council prepared to move from 17 city centre premises into two buildings, with a requirement for staff to work flexibly in a paper-less open plan office. The video was designed to explain the programme, get people to understand the personal changes that they would need to make and gain their support and commitment. John worked  really hard with us to make a video  that was interesting, challenging and thought provoking. The quality of the work ultimately helped to kick start our final preparations and became a talking point for staff. He was very imaginative, flexible and skilful in compressing ideas into a short and effective video and bringing out points.”

Tracey Carter, Assistant Director – Finance, Property and Procurement

“I employed John Phillips to rework a video that a client had originally produced. John was highly personable whilst adopting a professional attitude to the task in hand. The final result fitted our needs and was of high quality. I would recommend John as a reliable, hard working and flexible film maker who I would look to use again  in the future.”

Sarah Mottershead,  MooD International

“John has filmed several schools’ public speaking competitions for the York Civic Trust. The locations have not been easy venues in which to film but he gets on with it with a minimum of fuss in a quiet and professional manner. His particular strength is in the editing of film at the end. He manages to identify and extract the most important points and put them together in a short film that encapsulates the whole proceedings. John is adaptable and always a pleasure to work with.”

Verna Campbell, Chair, Education Committee, York Civic Trust.

“JRPP filmed a solo theatre production for me. The two-camera shoot was beautifully shot and the audio was clear and strong, which is so important in a theatre piece. The play was edited with care and precision.

Since then I have used John for a photography session which turned out beautifully. And I have also worked with him on music productions, which were excellent.

JRPP staff are efficient, hard-working, congenial and very easy to work with. They use state-of- the art, broadcast ready, equipment. True and thorough professionals in every sense of the word. I would highly recommend their services to anyone.”

Joan Keiter, Writer, performer

“We have worked with John on a number of occasions and are always impressed with his work. He is easy to work with and produces a very professional and high quality product. He always embraces the project he is working on offering suggestions of how to improve the final output. I would definitely recommend him as a film maker.”
