Hello, my name is Carl, thank you for visiting Red Lime.
Please enjoy looking around and if you have any questions, please contact me.

A LONG CAREER IN DESIGN


I have been creative for as long as I can remember. My passion for drawing as a nine year old led me to study Graphic Design and Photography after I left school.

During my long and successful career as a designer, I have been fortunate to have had opportunities to explore my creativity through many mediums; Print, Web, Interior Design, Photography, Animation and of course Video. Whilst I have worked on many Blue Chip Brands, I have always felt that there is greater reward in what can be achieved for smaller organisations/companies etc.

Why should companies or bands should use Red Lime for their company video or music video work?

It's about fully understanding the clients' needs and then injecting my own creativity - just like I have done for over 30 years!
Everyone has the facilities at hand to record video, but it's the person behind the camera that really matters.

CARE AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL

My natural ability to understand colour, composition and what makes good design sense have been instrumental in my career, but, listening, understanding and interpreting the clients brief (or Bride and Grooms requirements) are critical assets too.

I always knew that one day I would run my own company, in fact I think my first Boss (Tim) even told me it would happen one day - a great guy who taught me so much and who I cherish as a dear friend still.

As a Graphic Designer, time is money, deadlines for magazines do not wait. You have to learn to work quickly and accurately. This means, even today, I deliver Wedding Videos, Commercial Video or whatever I am working on - FAST!

Red Lime only accepts 15 wedding video productions a year. This ensures each and every Bride and Groom receives my utmost care and attention in the production of their Wedding Video package. Working on a wedding video whilst it's still fresh in my mind and delivering before the memories of your special day fade are part of how Red Lime work.

My skills these days get applied to making great looking DVD menus, Video graphics and titles and I do still take on some Graphics work and plenty of photography too - although I tend not to photograph Weddings.

Why should Bride and Grooms choose Red Lime as their Wedding Videographer?

It's all about what sets us apart from the rest. We enjoy telling a good Love Story. Many Wedding Videographer's simply shoot some nice video and lay it over music - almost like the old Silent Movie days! For us it's about the couple, their story and like any great story it has a beginning, middle and end. It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions and of course is beautifully filmed and presented.

So, what happened to that nine year old artist? Well he enjoys finding time to draw for commissions or pleasure - I have a website dedicated to my drawings here: www.syres.co.uk One other member of the team is Linda. My wife, friend and rock for over 27 years. Whilst she does not have a day-to-day role in the business, she joins me at Weddings, where she can be found providing second camera duties.
