WELCOME TO BLUE ROSE PRODUCTIONS
Blue Rose Production is a small production company run by Dave Skinner. Dave set up the company to provide a small scale operation to make cost effective video content and programming. Our previous clients have included Sony records, Channel 4 and Universal Pictures UK.
Over the 20 years that I have been active in television I have worked my way through numerous positions including assistant floor manager, assistant director, production coordinator, single camera director, edit producer, series producer & executive producer, all before I decided that I had a passion and urge to direct live and pre-recorded multi camera studio and outside broadcasts.
Over the past 10 years I have concentrated mainly on multi-camera directing, working on a wide variety of genres for the four terrestrial broadcasters, digital broadcasters and DVD only releases. My directing portfolio is large and varied and includes cookery, magazine, music, children’s, panel and quiz shows. I have been told I have a calm air that works well in both live and pre-recorded situations. As well as bringing an experienced eye to all the projects I have worked on, my background in TV gives me an almost unique ability as a director to view every show from a myriad of perspectives allowing me to realize producers ambitions whilst also being aware of budgetary restrictions and production details. As you will see from my CV, I am still often asked to utilize my producing skills, and quite often, in this day and age of tighter budgets, I’m asked to cover both area’s which has proven to work effectively on several projects.
Overall I have a vast experience, a good rapport with major broadcasters, production companies, presenters & production teams and an ability to always deliver a quality product.
