When working with Blue Sky, the people you’ll meet in early discussions, will be the people you’ll deal with during the entire production process. We don’t win work and then pass it down to juniors.
That means at every stage of production you’ll be talking to experienced professionals who understand your market, your business and your creative needs. All our clients have at least two points of contact, providing an uninterrupted dialogue throughout the life of a project. This enables a robust level of service at all times.

Paul WatsonProducer / Director / Writer
Paul is a highly experienced creative film maker and writer who specialises in taking an ordinary concept and fashioning it into a stand –out film.

He is one of the safest pair of hands in the business and a fountain of ideas whatever the budget and brief demands. He always has a smile and a solution-no matter what – whether it’s a nervous CEO in front of the lens or an errant raincloud spoiling the shot.
Andy has a talent for stunning and artful film-making with imagery that betrays his beginnings in music videos. His track record in that sphere speaks volumes, with numerous MTV awards and Grammy nominations. His commercials include blue-chip clients, from beer brands to automotive and lifestyle products. Andy is happy to meet the creative challenges of working within smaller budget ranges – which reveals his passion for film in all aspects. His ability to work within budget and to a tight turn around has been honed over many years, yet his awards are testament to his outstanding results.
