Smithwood Productions, TV, DVD, Radio, CD, Internet Media

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 Mac Donald - Lottery disasters” - ITV Our most recent 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 include MRI (Mac Anthony Realty International – now known as MRI Overseas Property).
In September 2005, Mac Anthony 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.

In addition to these “travelogue” videos we set up a TV style interview conducted by well-known television journalist John Stapleton (GMTV), with MRI Chairman Darragh MacAnthony, using MRI headquarters as the “Studio”.

Other videos on the DVD give an overview of the Aftersales service, Inspection trip process, an insight into Finance/Currency/Mortgages in foreign lands and Client testimonials. 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! Oh, and we also made a 14-minute “Bloopers” special DVD for the MRI Christmas party at “Olivia Valère’s Babylonia Palace” in Marbella.
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 have gone 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.

Many of our existing clients have since commissioned us to produce videos for You Tube.
