Smithwood Productions - International Video/Audio/Media Production Company

Formed in 1993, Smithwood Productions provided the Costa del Sol foreign residents with English language TV on “The Entertainment Channel” for 5 years before moving into the corporate video sector. We are still very active in television production albeit for broadcast outside of Spain. Programmes we have worked on include;
“This is your life” – BBC
“Wish you were here” – ITV
“Tonight with Trevor MacDonald – Lottery disasters” – ITV

Our most fun TV work was for a game manufacturer in the form of their new advert “Shark” to promote the game “Articulate”. We provided the casting, crew, location clearance and equipment, click here to view the video “Articulate – Shark”

Smithwood Productions’ many corporate clients included MRI (MacAnthony Realty International). Even thought the company no longer exists our production is still the most comprehensive we have undertaken.
In September 2005, MacAnthony Realty International commissioned Smithwood Productions to produce their first corporate DVD.
This was a major production as MRI had offices in no less than 8 countries, and filming of each office’s region was to be one of the main features of the DVD. Smithwood Productions contracted film crews around the world to shoot the necessary footage, which included the countries culture, lifestyle and property. We were able to advise and guide them at all times by using our own internet “Video streaming” service to show the style and type of shot needed.
The amount of production needed in this project would normally take well over 4 months to do but we were able to finish the first version of the DVD in less than three months, with the actual DVD being mastered on New Years Day, something we will not forget for a while!
Three weeks after presenting the first version of the DVD to Darragh and his board, I am proud to say we were asked to start work on version two, as MRI had added new countries to their list, we went on to make 4 updated versions.

Many of our corporate clients videos and radio adverts are accessible on our website Smithwood Productions video and audio.

As the Internet got faster, so our video and audio streaming service grew. No longer was it a gimmick to have a video on your website, it was necessary! Companies’ products or services could be shown visually to anyone, anywhere, anytime. And so our production style grew to encompass “internet-style” format.
In 2008 Smithwood Productions were asked by Maurice Boland to film the Cudeca fund raising competition “The Wow Factor”, which we took to a new level by creating a YouTube site for the whole competition, showing EVERY contestant at EVERY stage up to the final,  The Wow Factor. We have just finished filming Wow Factor 2009 and the YouTube hits soared to over 100,000!! The Wow Factor 2010 is now in production.

Many of our existing clients have since commissioned us to produce videos for YouTube and Facebook.

Smithwood Productions also produce personalised DVD’s, CD’s and USB pen drives with our ‘In-house’ duplication service, High Quality disks and various capacity pen drives in a variety of packaging. We supply clients with single copies, up to your biggest order, please ask for a quote.
