World on Fire 2 filming in Belfast. Helen James Productions are creating the EPK: behind the scenes features, cast interviews and DVD bonus material for PBS Masterpiece, ITV Studios & Mammoth Screen.
A multi-skilled broadcaster, TV presenter & reporter (BBC/ITV) who formed Helen James Productions Ltd in 2009 - a highly creative and innovative video production company, producing EPKs (Electronic Press Kits), social media content and DVD behind the scenes bonus features, promoting Britain's best TV dramas internationally.
We are big fans of Helen’s work and we’ve collaborated with her on some of our biggest productions. Helen prides herself in producing work with integrity and she goes above and beyond in terms of bonus content. She’s always on the lookout to reveal something different or interesting about the filming process and the production in particular.
Fantastic work. Well produced, on time, beautiful presentation and engaging. Thank you!
Acorn TV continue to be impressed with the high quality of Helen’s behind-the-scenes content for several of our key franchises which is entertaining and informative.
We were really impressed with the Bodyguard EPK is really well done and compelling. The questions are interesting and the edit is spot on. It makes you want to watch the show if you haven¹t yet. Brilliant work, Helen!
Working with Helen and her team is a pure joy. She researches the subject thoroughly and the cast feel relaxed and in safe hands. Once in the editing process she will work tirelessly to hit deadlines.
I think Helen did a great job given a rather testy shoot. The finished shows were well thought out and entertaining, indeed a cut above the usual EPK material.
Helen James did a great job for us with the EPK for Fearless - working with a large cast and a fast moving production she produced a very entertaining and informative set of films which really position the show very well.
Helen has done a stunning job on our 'Behind the Scenes' short features for the last series of Inspector George Gently. She's a sensitive interviewer, a great visual stylist - and I Iook forward to working with her again.
Helen approached the DVD extras for both series of Lip Service and The Hour in a delightfully fresh and engaging way. Her charisma and warmth immediately put the cast and crew at their ease and she brilliantly judged each interview, asked incisive and pertinent questions, working around the filming schedule with great consideration. She edited the behind-the- scenes material superbly, giving it a lovely narrative flow. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
With incredible efficiency and quick insight Helen manages to gather great behind the scenes contributions from cast and crew, which on a tight production schedule is no easy feat. Her sense of the right tone to convey in all her edits is also exemplary. She’s a delight and we look forward to working together again soon.
Helen is a first class producer who quickly grasps the brief adding her own creativity and quality to it too, working tirelessly every time to produce outstanding content, on time and within budget.
I would recommend Helen very, very highly. She is just brilliant at her job.
Helen's instinctive journalistic style makes all contributors feel at ease and with a tough brief and few resources she was able to turn in a series documentaries which have been used around the world.
Helen James is a joy to work with. She is incredibly professional and extremely passionate about her work.
