Gone Fishing – The North Sea Boat Trip

3 Cheers Media needs it’s downtime and this December we got a treat by going fishing for the day. A group of us hired a private boat with fishing gear supplied to then sail out to the North Sea. The perfect day was set as the sea was calm and the sun shone. This was a brilliant day captured using our DJI Mavic Pro Drone.

Our Little Bundle of Joy – Everly Wren Newborn Videography

Truly ‘Moving’ Images with Essex Newborn Videography

Presenting Everly Wren ‘our little bundle of joy’ during the first 6 months of her life on the crazy world. I am a proud Dad of this little beauty and as a film maker what better way to capture her spirit than with some newborn videography. At 3 Cheers Media we can turn newborn photography into a moving memory by capturing your little one, wriggle, giggle, cry and burp. After all these are the things you will want to remember in years to come. Moving images capture something a photograph just simple can’t, the emotion of the moment, a memory that won’t fade and something beautiful you can show them when they are all grown up.

final cut pro certified

Matthew Boswell is a Final Cut Pro Certified Editor

I have been using the Apple video editing software; Final Cut Pro since the days the program launched over 15 years. Originally self taught whilst working in the UK television industry back in 1999, I have seen many updates and changes to the  industry standard video editing program. In 2015 I decided it was time to put my knowledge to the test and take the Apple certification exam on Final Cut Pro X. Although I have used the editing program for many years, some revision was needed to take the difficult exam. I am pleased to say I passed the exam under the supervision of Apple invigilators. This means I, Matthew Boswell am now a Final Cut Pro Certified Editor and I can use the program at teaching level. So for any Essex video editing productions please be assured you are in professional hands with myself as a video editor at 3 Cheers Media.

Video Training Production – How To Videos!

Looking for training videos with taste, creativity and style? A video that will do the job of delivering a key message for staff members or individuals that need training. Look no further than Essex based video production specialists 3 Cheers Media. With over 15 years industry filming experience we have the knowledge base, equipment and skill set to make high quality training videos, how to videos and video tutorials.

Leading Video Training Experience

Over the years we have provided companies with specific training videos that help deliver information needed on procedures, tools, work environments, specific products, health and safety and much more;

  • Health and Safety Video Production
  • Product Training Videos
  • Sports Coaching Video Production
  • How To Video Tutorials
  • Site Safety Video Production
  • Web Training Videos
  • Procedure Video Production

Who Has Time For Training

Getting the time to train staff or individuals can be hard and the costs can spiral if re-training is needed. Often with training videos you will save in the long term by having a custom video. They can be adapted to deliver a specific message and can expand when new subjects are needed. This makes them flexible and allows individuals or groups to get the information they need in a fast and affective way.

Video Training Delivery

The training videos that you may have made can easily be delivered to all trainees. Either in a classroom  environment with DVD chapters to follow the relevant subjects. Or at home via website like Youtube or Vimeo. Some companies I have worked with produce a simple multiple choice test to show the trainee has followed the video. With the training videos in a digital format it is possible to deliver them in so many ways;

  • DVD Training Videos
  • iPad Training Videos
  • Website Tutorial Videos
  • Members Login Videos (Private)
  • Classroom Videos (Projectors)

Why Choose Video Training

It’s not just time and money that factor into choosing video training production as a great way to deliver a message. A big part of it is; they just work more effectively than the normal classroom teacher style. Beautiful shot video, clear instructions and creative editing make a training video enjoyable and informative.

  • Videos contain an approved, consistent and fresh message every time they are watched
  • Video can provide an insight into a business without the cost and management of a trainer
  • People prefer to watch than read
  • Video allows companies or individuals time to work harder – they can get on with their tasks rather than deliver the training
  • Video production can be more cost effective than you think – email for more details!

In addition to … top-quality video training available to everyone in your organization. – The home of video learning.

It All Sounds Good To Me!

videography audio equipment


Videography audio equipment and set up;

It is one thing to make your video productions look visually amazing; Using the latest DSLR video cameras, great lighting techniques, sharp editing skills, filters and colour grading. But unless you get great audio from the subject you are filming the project can fall flat. To us at 3 Cheers Media videography audio equipment is essential to get the job done right. Without a good sound set up audio can sound flat and poor on the final product and we don’t want that for our clients.

Recently we invested in some new videography audio equipment to go with our original set up;

Zoom H1Zoom H1 Portable Audio Recorder

This little bad boy is perfect for small spaces. We will be using it to get great audio on things like weddings and interviews. At a wedding you can place the Zoom H1 in the right spot to pick up speeches or the ceremony. Nice and discreet!


Rode SmartLavThe Rode SmartLav+

Cant wait to use this! The smartLav+ is a broadcast-grade wearable microphone that can work straight from an iPhone using the Rode Rec App. Brilliant audio quality too! It is a discreet, portable format without the complication and expense of additional wireless equipment. Also works great with the Zoom H1.

Aaron Garland – Bar Mitzvah Highlights Video


Essex Bar Mitzvah Filming

3 Cheers Media had the distinct pleasure of filming yet another Garland family Bar Mitzvah. This time round it was Aaron Garland who stars in this Bar Mitzvah Highlights video. Filmed in December 2014, Elstree Hertfordshire. The celebration was one to remember. The venue was packed, drinks flowing, music pumping and everyone was dancing. Thanks to Tracey Garland for booking us. I hope you enjoy the full edit. If you need an Essex Bar Mitzvah filming please don’t hesitate to contact us for a quote. We are also happy to film Bar Mitzvah’s in London and the South East of England.

Bar Mitzvah Videographer Essex

Fun, Fun, Fun Filming Aaron’s Bar Mitzvah

This December I film another Bar Mitzvah for the Garland family. It’s the second celebration we have filmed for the family after becoming the videographer for Aaron’s brother Harry over two years ago. Building a good relationship with a client is very important to us and knowing clients want us back to film more key events in their lives makes us feel very proud. Mother, Tracey Garland from North London originally found us from a Google search, we had never video a Bar Mitzvah before so Tracey was understandably concerned. After building up a client relationship we gained her trust and have now filmed two really fun Bar Mitzvah’s. Tracey booked us to film hers son’s Bar Mitzvahs in Elstree, Hertfordshire, but we are a typically Bar Mitzvah videographer Essex company, that indeed is happy to travel in and around London and Essex.

I wanted to say a big thank you to the Garland family, the venue, Conygree Cottage Barn was absolutely superb and looked beautiful with all the customisation for Aaron’s big day. Also the hospitality with such lovely food and drink made the night go with a real swing. Thank you guys!

The picture above shows myself with a new beard and Neal Lankester who I met during the first Bar Mitzvah I filmed. This is us having a bit of fun during a really good night at Aaron’s do. If you use me to video a Bat Mitzvah or Bar Mitzvah you will hopefully learn I like to have fun on the evening, I always think its best to enjoy the event. Check out Neal’s website for professional photography in London, really nice chap and very easy to work with!

Up and out when it was still dark this morning to attend a BNI Southend business meeting for a bit of networking. Thank you to Sam Draper from Spark Digital for the invite, was great to meet new people in so many different industries. I really enjoyed a nerve racking 1 minute speech in front of about 40 BNI members. It seemed to go down well when I mentioned a quote that inspired me to attend. The picture in the blog is of the quote I used, all thanks to a good friend Phil Stalham who posted it on Facebook earlier this week. I hope to visit the breakfast again soon.
