On the Beach Productions have made a number of short films for us supporting the exhibitions and displays programmes at Tate St Ives. They have been a pleasure to work with – professional, responsive and creative. The sensitivity shown to each particular artist and exhibition has been impressive, and the quality of the films has been consistently high. They’ve been watched and enjoyed by our many thousands of visitors to the gallery and are a very valuable resource for our audiences.

“Senara’s film for Surf Action has been incredibly valuable. Tight, concise and emotive,it has already opened many doors and helped Surf Action move from strength to strength.

“Senara is a very impressive Director; her attention to detail is brilliant, she gets great performances from the cast and gives her films a natural but professional feel. She also has the ability, through her directing and her beautiful camera work, to add those small extra details which make all the difference at the end of the day. I always feel confident working with her and know our clients will be in safe hands.”Claire Rimmer, Managing Director Space City www.spacecity.co.uk
Senara’s film captured the very essence of our art school. She grasped the brief immediately and her ability to make contributors relax and respond to her skilled questioning meant they were forthcoming with their stories. This combined with an eye for detail, artistic flair and tight editing skills not to mention her boundless energy resulted in a very well-crafted professional film which met our needs precisely. Senara was a delight to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.

When we have used this film during presentations, the room has been silent and engaged. Surf Action has been able to use it both as a web film and a dvd to support exactly what we do. The images that Senara captured, the editing and presentation are amazing. If Surf Action need to produce another film in the future we would look no further. Brilliant.

I commissioned Senara to make a number of films for Tate St Ives and admired her innovative and engaged approach to film making. She filmed the works in the galleries with a sensitive eye and when she edited the footage, added her own vision of what the projects were about. She is a highly skilled professional and I very much enjoy working with her.

Through On the Beach Productions Senara used her special skills as documentary / film maker to bring Action Space alive. She has the rare skill of bringing alive what people can accomplish. She told the story of what Action Space is all about and much more than that caught the atmosphere that makes Action Space so special. The real magic came from the way in which she worked individually with all the contributors to put them at ease and to capture on film their creativity and energy.

We wanted a short film to promote a new campervan business. We didn’t really know what we wanted on the film but Senara came up with some lovely ideas & made it a very easy & fun experience. We are very happy with the results & highly recommend her.
