About Us – Video Production
DSVP, David Strelitz Video Productions was established in 1983 and provides a comprehensive range of video production services including filming, editing, DVD creation, DVD duplication, web encoding, video transfer to DVD and a specialised cine transfer service from 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm film.
Our air conditioned studio in Basildon, Essex is comprehensively equipped providing our clients, who include multi-national companies, international production companies, advertising agencies, local authorities, regional shopping centres, national sports organisations, dance schools, photographic retailers, as well as many local companies both large and small, with a fast, efficient, friendly, one-stop personal service.
Working on the basis that “no job is too small or unimportant”, DSVP have built up a client base of both domestic and corporate clients. This has meant a diverse range of services from copying a single video tape to making TV commercials shown on ITV regions in the UK as well as TV stations in US and Australia. It has also given David a wealth of anecdotes from some of the more bizarre work he has done…
… playing a video he had made of a manufacturing process to a High Court Judge in a closed court in London and surreally behaving as though he was an extra on Kavanagh QC.
… filming a conference piece for the second time with a Government Minister in Whitehall and being told at the end, “I will see you the next time I don’t want to go to a conference.”
… filming the actual process of a cremation for a US court case.
… sitting in a hotel room just outside Marbella where he was supposed to be making a promo of a new property development but instead watching torrential rain for two days.
…filming the simulation of a Bank Raid to test the (lack of) security on a bank counter installation.
… filming the reconstruction of a glider accident and not only having to fly in a glider but then when being flown home from North Wales in a Cessna, being involved in a full scale emergency landing.
“Thank you for your patience and effort with this project. You have excelled and I am so pleased with the result. Well Done!”

Jean Freeman – MD Sharp-aX computer
The ‘showing’ of the cine film transfer went well and I was pleasantly surprised at how much better the DVD was, than my initial projection on to a wall at home.
