About Us

Blow by Blow Productions, begun in 1989 when Andrew Blow left ITV Yorkshire, is part of a multi-skilled group of media associates.
We are filmmakers who tackle a lot of other tasks – for instance digitising old tapes and reels for families.
We’ve worked for many famous companies, and with many famous people. Once we were called audio-visual people. Now digital media is a better description.
We operate at the point where digital media and business meet and the place where digital media and education meet. Lots of our output goes into schools and colleges.
We can work single-handed -- or call in the associates for help on more complex projects.
We give film shows, in person or on Zoom, based on our nostalgia programmes which are available online and on DVD. Andrew is a Master Member of the Institute of Videography.
