We’re a small friendly company, proud of the personalised service and individual attention we’re able to offer to our clients. Our experienced production crews are assembled to meet the particular needs of each project, and you’ll find them highly professional and a pleasure to deal with. From the first day of pre-production until the project is completed, we’ll work with you and for you, to ensure your goals are met. Above all, you’ll get your message across successfully with video. Because people instinctively believe what they see more than what they read.
Mike Sanders is a trained electronics engineer, film editor and cameraman, and is himself a qualified Media Trainer. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of digital production and post-production technology, image capture, transmission technology, compression techniques, and IT systems.
He established Create Media Partners Ltd (CMP) in 1999, as a production and post-production facility house and as a producer of broadcast and corporate DVDs, film and video communications. The company was born out of growing requests for such services from clients of Mike’s electronic and data transmission consultancy MK Data Services (est. 1992).
Since then, CMP has grown to feature four edit suites all of which will Edit in 4k/UHD and state-of-the art 4k camera and lighting equipment. The company is able to offer full script-to screen service, including animation and 3D.
In 2017 Mike rebranded as Video4Business as it more clearly says what’s in the tin than Create Media Partners ever did.
Clients include Vodafone, Fox TV, GMTV, IBM, the NHS, and several other blue-chip companies.
