We are a Creative Film Production Company.
Blow Your Trumpet films is a York based film production company committed to creating distinctive, captivating and beautifully crafted films for the heritage sector, the Arts and business. A bespoke film opens a window to the world and in an ever more digital age, choosing not to have one simply means one thing - losing business.
Blow Your Trumpet Films was formed by Anne Dodsworth in 2015 when she moved to Yorkshire after many years working in television, film and corporate filmmaking. Based in London, Anne worked on prime time programmes such as The Southbank Show and The Bill. She also travelled the world working on high end productions including the BBC’s TimeWatch, and more popular programming such as ITV’s Temptation Island.
Now based in York, Anne has put together a team which understands how to make the best, most engaging films. Her team includes Drone Operators, Lighting Technicians, Composers, Editors, Sound Recordists and Camera Assistants.
Working with Anne and her team was an absolute pleasure, she guided us through each stage and took on board what we were looking for. We had not created a promotional video before and felt it was something we were missing to really give our business the best opportunity to shine on multiple media platforms and this is exactly what the video/film has achieved. We were absolutely thrilled with the outcome and the results are speaking for themselves on our website and social media, we would highly recommend working with Blow Your Trumpet Films to anyone out there looking for a professional and creative promotional film. Thank you, Anne!
