Ricandjo.tv has been in operation for twelve years. It was founded in the year 2000 by Ric Hawkes (Director) and Jo Scrase Dickins (Producer) as a result of a decision to pool their vast knowledge and experience in the world of visual communications and to offer their clients a 'no nonsense' efficient, creative and above all highly professional service.
The company approaches each project no matter how big or small, with the same attitude. Ricandjo.tv take your personal communication requirements and deliver an end product which combines creativity, beautiful visual content and in the case of the corporate market, informative fact.
Earlier this year, as a result of the phenomenal success worldwide of Downton Abbey, we decided to use our experience in production to set up a separate company to provide high net worth clients with their own ‘Downton Experience’. This is the resulting film and will be part of our marketing strategy.
Ricandjo.tv are the seamless combination of creativity, problem solving and quality. Our work with them was exceptional - starting from the idea interpretation until the final TV Commercial which touched the hearts of the viewership.
For last decade, ricandjo have never failed to deliver. They have the respect of a huge freelance film crew - always with the experts. Ric's incredible eye for detail and always brings great performances from the most reluctant of subjects. They can manage a crew of 50 & cast of hundreds - or with a camera slung over a shoulder & no assistant, as the budget dictates.
Jo is one of the smartest and most astute people I have ever come across in the business. Her speed, considered thought and outstanding abilities to solve problems, are second to none, and quite frankly irreplaceable. Her knowledge of the industry is legendary, her 'who she knows' book is practically biblical, and her down to earth boost chats are marketable on their own. Months pass, years fly, the rock that is Jo is constant. That bloke she works with, Ric? He's not bad either.
Ric is a joy to work with. He is grown up in his approach but certainly not dull. He made what could have been a challenging process seem like a breeze. No issue arose that he didn't deal with in a calm and creative way. Both the agency and the Client were very happy with the end result and he is certainly on my list of 'would love to work with again' Directors.
Ric and Jo are quite simply a brilliant team. Ric has a fantastic eye that delivers superb results. They are always brimming with ideas and enthusiasm, combined with a relentless drive to deliver. Ric has a natural ability to put people at ease on those challenging moments. Nothing is ever too much for Ric and Jo. They are a really sound act and an absolute pleasure to work with and be around. Love working with them and would highly recommend.
