Hotcake are a film & video production company based in Chichester, West Sussex. We’re passionate about producing inspiring and powerful videos for businesses, musicians, charities, churches and weddings.
Our core values are routed in quality and attention to detail through the creation of the concept, capturing footage with our cutting-edge equipment and finally the meticulous (sometimes obsessive!) process of editing. We aim to create content that doesn’t just look amazing, but connects with the viewer emotionally, and cuts through the noise in an unforgettable way.
Hotcake was formed by myself (Jim) in 2012, and I still undertake all aspects of production myself, but as we have grown, I’m proud to call on our team of trusted and professional camera operators, assistants and motion graphic designers, if and when the project requires.
Whether your business needs to communicate internally, or to grab the attention of online customers, we have the experience and creativity to build your business with polished, professional video
Musicians should be seen, not just heard! We know how much it means to get yourselves ‘out there’ looking and sounding great in your live performance, music video, promo or interview
Video has the power to move people deeply, which is why it has become such a useful tool for charities and churches. We're always so excited about the potential of this type of project
Time flies when your having fun! So it’s worth ensuring you remember your special day for many years. Hotcake will beautifully document your wedding, capturing all the emotion with a relaxed and natural flow
Our best-in-class Canon C200 4k cinema camera combined with Canon L-series lenses produce stunningly sharp, cinematic looking footage, with a superb dynamic range
The sky's the limit! We own a DJI Mavic Pro, so if your project requires jaw-dropping landscape shots (so long as you're not in a no-fly zone!) - nothing beats a drone!
Look and sound your best with over £3000 of powerful and flattering LED-based lighting and modifiers, plus top of the range shotgun/clip mics and dedicated professional audio recorders
We have exclusive access to The Old Chapel Studios (Chichester) and Push Records Studios (Bognor Regis). Very handy if your need to record or your project requires bespoke music composition
Aside from shoulder rigs to minimise distracting camera-shake, we use sliders and a Ronin gimbal to further increase the production value of your project with cinematic motion
We offer a variety of photography services such as portraits, product shoots and wedding photography with the same high level of equipment, creativity and attention to detail as our video services
