Millstream Productions is an independent film and video production company that creates original video content for both businesses and broadcast television. Since we started in 2011 we have begun to grow into one of the South Coast's leading production companies.
We're a team of like-minded creatives, with filmmaking being our main shared passion among others. Our company studios are based between Portsmouth and Chichester and we provide video production services across Hampshire, West Sussex, Surrey and London.
We produce corporate videos for small indie companies through to large national organisations and global brands. We create documentaries; both shorts and feature length, drama and community videos. We also produce documentary for broadcast television, including our recent short film commisioned by Channel 4 for their Shooting Gallery.
We're very proud to work alongside schools, disability groups and vulnerable people in helping them to tell their stories through film.
What they say
Communications Officer, Southern Water
"In my position as a Communications Officer at Southern Water we have used Millstream Productions on numerous occasions and have always found their work and commitment to have been of a high standard. Their input from a basic idea to completion has been invaluable. Their ongoing support and training particularly on a 1-1 basis has been extremely beneficial to our company."
Arts Development Manager, Crawley Borough Council
"We’ve worked together on three projects now, for a social history project that I’ve been running called Road to Crawley. Millstream have really got behind the topic that we’re looking for. They’re very good at connecting with people and making people feel very relaxed so that they’re free to tell their story. So by the third project we were able to just, give a brief, and leave the company to it. And we’re very happy with the result."
Managing Director, Strawberry Soup
"We found the guys really easy to talk to. They were flexible. They gave us lots of good ideas, and their feedback was really impartial. If we had any questions or queries, they would be more than happy to explain how things worked. The end product for the short film was spot on. It was exactly what we wanted. The depth of field, the composition of the shots, the guys really did listen to what we wanted. We would definitely recommend Millstream Productions and we look forward to working with them again."
Deputy Head Teacher, St George's Beneficial
"Millstream productions team have made a significant and sustained impact on the children's understanding of not only film making but also literacy, notably speaking and listening and writing skills. Through genuine creative, collaborative and focused planning, children, who have had no prior knowledge of film making, have spoken confidently about this to different audiences for a variety of purposes. Dan and Ben act as experts and role models allowing the children to use professional equipment whilst ensuring teachers are at ease with the whole process. The children's writing levels improved significantly as they could write scripts, suspense narratives and character descriptions from real experiences- these were genuinely their films and their stories that they wanted to tell. Listening to children, from challenging backgrounds, talk about "Dutch angles and extreme close ups to create the bleak mood of Macbeth in Duncan's castle" is a real indicator of the success of Millstream's work. Working with millstream is no longer considered a luxury, which staff and pupils enjoy, but an essential part of our literacy curriculum."
