Working with the Complete Camera Company on a fixed rig film about a gun shop in America was a great experience. It's hard to sum up in a few words just how important they were in the production. From the recce, the planning and installation of the rig, to the shoot and de-rig, Ben and his team exuded confidence, professionalism and helped create a positive atmosphere. Their technical expertise, inventiveness and can do attitude meant that no request, problem or change of plan was an issue; this coupled with their love for documentary and engagement with the editorial side of the production was invaluable. We were a very small team and I felt totally supported and confident in the knowledge that Ben and his team were passionate about the film and determined to make the shoot as successful as it could possibly be.
The CCC are great collaborators on SAS: Who Dares Wins. Their technical knowledge as well as their "computer says YES" attitude makes them an ideal company to partner with on such an ambitious and technically challenging series.
The Complete Camera Company were a delight to work with from start to finish. Professional, great attention to detail and lovely people. I'm looking forward to working with them again on future projects.
I booked The CCC for the Channel 4 series "The Secret Life of 4, 5 & 6 Year Olds". They formed an integral part of a successful production team, they were reliable, professional and went beyond on the call of duty on numerous occasions. Ben & Paul were a joy to work with and their experience of rig filming is inspiring. I would have no hesitation in recommending The CCC to a production.
For a uniquely challenging documentary series recording a tribal family day and night Ben Hoffman's Complete Camera Company took sole charge of a fixed rig in a remote part of Southern Ethiopia. A hugely ambitious project and a genuine first for fixed rig filming, on every level this was a challenge: conceptually, logistically, practically and creatively. It was a big ask: getting the kit out there in one piece, setting up the cameras, running the cables and building the gallery in extreme heat and torrential rain. Then working a demanding schedule over an entire month in 40 plus temperatures. Ben and his team not only met these challenges, they embraced them with a focused professionalism and a cheerful attitude. To a man and woman they were a complete pleasure to work with, an extraordinary level of know-how coupled with a can-do attitude, they were a directors' dream. My first choice team for any fixed rig project.
I’ve worked with The CCC on 3 series and they would always be my first choice for any fixed-rig project. Paul and Ben are fantastic - honest, reliable and most importantly really good fun to work with. They explain everything in an accessible way which makes planning and communication straightforward even if you aren’t technically minded. They are particularly excellent filming in extreme or unusual environments and always come up with creative solutions to the most testing logistical challenges. What really sets The CCC apart from other companies is the personal investment they make in every job. They’ll go to extraordinary lengths to meet the ambitions of the project and they genuinely care about making the end result as good as it can possibly be.
Ben and Paul at The CCC provided the production team on The Tribe with the complete package. From the outset they understood what was needed and came up with solutions to each and every challenge that filming for six weeks in the remote South Omo Valley, Ethiopia had to offer.
