I make videos (filming and/or editing) to suit your budget. Videos to keep people engaged on your website and keep coming back for more; instruction and demonstration videos to show your products and services; videos of your team to communicate with your customers – all types of videos in any format.
I take creative photographs that won’t break your budget. Photographs of your team, your events, your products, your venue, your site – for brochures, websites, social media, newsletters and keep-sake memories.
I carry out affordable digital marketing support to help you meet your digital marketing potential – from setting up your social media accounts, maintaining a social media presence and advertising campaigns to rejuvenating your website and bulk email marketing.
WELCOME TO KEYSTONE
Thanks for visiting my website. I take a traditional approach to my work – and deliver it fit for a contemporary world. Whether it’s a video you’re looking for, or some photographs, or some support to your website, social media or digital marketing – I keep it plain, simple and realistic but creative and contemporary and make sure it’s achievable and results lead.
Today, a quality video does not have to be produced with a massive filming crew.
A good, single camera person, with the ability to film great shots, record quality sound with portable lighting if needed, can make a great video for you. And that’s how I do it. Subsequently, my costs are reasonable and affordable.
Everything I do is digital. It’s high definition. I can then make sure you’re making the most of the digital world we live in. Whether it’s your social media, your website, your email marketing, your search engine ranking or social media advertising – I can help you reach your digital marketing potential.

Who am I?
Left school and trained as an engineering draughtsman; then as a technical illustrator.
As an illustrator I worked for David Brown Tractors in Yorkshire, then for TVR Sports Cars in Lancashire. I ended up as TVR’s Marketing & Sales guy.
Then a big change – I worked for several charities in fundraising, PR and marketing. I ended up as Corporate Services Director to a national post adoption and family finding charity.
I then set Keystone up in 2005.
Since then I’ve worked with many different types of businesses.
An information video
Please don't think that having a video made costs the earth!
Whether it’s making a short promotional video for your website or for your social media OR a corporate video to show your customers and stakeholders – it can usually be done to suit your realistic budget.
With clearly defined aims and messages; a good tight filming plan; a good variation of footage to film; possibly a good mix of people to interview; a professional voice-over if you need it; ideally, a great music soundtrack and an editing process that gives you your say – we can make great videos together.

I work in conjunction with a deafness support charity to make deaf signed videos.
Our interpreters are fully qualified BSL (British Sign Language) Interpreters.
We make complete videos with ‘in-vision’ signers or I can edit a signer into your existing videos.
We make fabulous keepsake videos to reflect your special day
We couldn't have asked for a better capture of our special day - we can't thank you enough!
Some clients from over the years
A big thank you to all my clients throughout the years – they’ve kept me on my toes; their work has totally varied and hugely rewarding.
Passionate about helping you reach your digital marketing potential
Keystone produced a fantastic promotional DVD for us - they totally understood what our scheme was about and ensured they captured this on the film. We were very happy with the professional service that was provided by Keystone and we will definitely be using them again for future promotional work. Thank you to Trevor and his team.
Can I say how delighted we are with the production of our promotional DVD. By carefully getting to know the charity, its people, family and carers you have captured in 15 minutes the many facets of our work.
Keystone were fantastic at taking on the challenge of producing over 38 YouTube style videos of how to look after a child in a hip plaster. Filming took place in homes and hospitals and had to be as natural and unobtrusive as possible, great sensitivity was needed to enable parents and children to behave naturally whilst being filmed. The company really did deliver 110%.
I was really pleased to have you as part of our team and you helped us in many different ways - communications, business planning and marketing some of our services - your contribution has been invaluable.
