Video Associates is a full service film and television production company.
“To bring our full creative and technical input to exceed our clients’ expectations and produce an end product that that reflects our skill and enthusiasm, no matter the size of the production.”
Video Associates opened its doors in 1981 as one of the first of only two full service television commercial production companies in the Caribbean.
We have an unparalleled 29-year track record of success producing highly acclaimed television commercials, business features, infomercials, television series and full feature films.
In 2008, when the United Nations tendered for a production house to script, shoot and produce a feature on the history of the UN in Trinidad & Tobago, Video Associates was chosen. On the launch of Atlantic LNG’s highly anticipated Train 4 production line and on the eve of the company’s 1700th cargo shipment in July 2009, we were again chosen to produce a corresponding broadcast feature. In 2009, the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad & Tobago also chose Video Associates to produce a 30 minute feature entitled “Cyber Danger”. The final product was distributed on DVD to schools nationwide as part of an interest awareness campaign. Over the years, we have produced features and commercials for banks, manufacturers, corporate and retail clients, insurance companies – locally, regionally and internationally. Some of our clients include Atlantic LNG, The National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago, UNDP, BP Trinidad Limited, Carib Brewery, TSTT, TATT, Republic Bank Limited, Crimestoppers, Niherst Angostura, to name a few.
Our Editor/Producer, Richard Chin, and our Senior Cameraman, Leroy Smart, have been in the industry for the past 15 years. Richard Chin has spear-headed many of the productions, coordinating the animation graphics, editing and technical support necessary for the completion of projects. Leroy received his training as the Marine Media College Workshops in Rockport, Maine, U.S.A. He has worked alongside renowned international cameramen in the production of Merchant & Ivory’s “Mystic Masseur” and “Satan’s Daughter”, both being full feature movie productions.
