BAE Systems

We’ve produced promotional, training and induction films for BAE Systems Submarine in
Barrow since 2007 to great acclaim. They are world leaders in their field and a truly valued
client who understand the effectiveness of using video as a communication tool.

“John McKeown certainly knows how to work to tight deadlines, which in a business as fast
paced as ours, is essential. His professionalism, mixed with unique creativity, shined through
the production and it was a pleasure to work with John and his team on this, even if it did
require a few early mornings!”

different reasons. This must have been difficult for the Lakes Creative team but they pulled it
off with style.”

“Additional work was required after the film was finished, to shorten it for another purpose and

Roddy Frame

Better known as Aztec Camera, we pitched the idea to Roddy of having one of his solo
concerts fiĀlmed and to John’s delight (big fan!) he agreed. Shot at Buxton Opera House on five
cameras, the live DVD is pencilled for release on AED Records in late 2013.


As a global company, Partylite candle manufacturers understood that the moving image cuts
through all language barriers, so they asked to make a video for them demonstrating the
candle production process for their many customer services employees around Europe. The
video was subtitled in 6 different languages and was shown at the company headquarters in
the US.

Great video! I know the field is going to love it.

Lakeland Radio

Lakeland Radio approached us to be a video provider for their clients on their ever flourishing
website and at short notice requested a promotional video that summed up the station as
they celebrated 10 years of broadcasting to the Lakes. This resulted in a two minute video
starring their key staff and the enduring backdrop of the Lake District.

We all love it! What a great representation of the area and the station, well done for pulling it
all together.

The Queen Katherine School

Queen Katherine’s comprehensive School in Kendal approached us to produce four short
communication videos that address the concerns of pupils who are making the leap from
primary to secondary school.

Produced in a simple and effective style with a short deadline, the videos are a resource on the school website and also offer peace of mind to parents.

Fantastic! Will be mentioning your name to any potential users of your skills. I have been very impressed with the product and the process.

Sky Sports

When he’s not producing web videos for our clients, MD John McKeown keeps his broadcast
skills honed as a camera operator for Sky Sports Football on all the big Premier League,
International and Champions League matches. Highlights have been the FA Cup Final,
England’s 5 – 1 away victory over Germany and Liverpool’s comeback to win the Champions
League Final in Istanbul, though nothing surpasses filming Newcastle United at St. Jamesʼ Park.
