Reviews:


from commissioners: You oer a fantastic service Allan McGrath, AnjunaBeats ! We used Radar for the GhostCulture video and we’ll use it again. Some fantastic creatives on there Erol Alkan, Phantasy Sound ! An excellent site Sophie Hall, MTA Records ! A fantastic way for us to reach out to new and exciting directors Matt Riley, Hospital Records ! I have to say, I was amazed by the response we got after putting the brief up. I will definitely use Radar again Five Easy Pieces ! Commissioning a video through Radar was a great experience Guillermo Enguita, Sony ! RADAR is a great way to gain access to a lot of creative talent in filmmaking relatively quickly. The system is professional and the treatments we got were original, serious and clever. I definitely recommend RADAR Tim Dunham, Cosmos Music Group ! Once again RADAR has helped us maximise our modest budgets and make something truly worthy of a fantastic song and artist. As a UK label, this is the first time we have commissioned a video through RADAR to be made in the USA Simon Drake, Naim Label.

from directors: INDEX

Radar has been brilliant for us. We directed some of our best work through Radar, which contributed to us getting signed, and it's a great way to build up your reel with proper artists and labels. Adi Kerr, now signed to Gas & Electric ! It's definitely been worth it, I've done Hurricane (for Tom Williams and the Boat). I’m currently finishing off the band's next video and next month I'm shooting for another video commissioned through Radar. Abbie Brandon ! I just finished a music video for Hospital Records this week via Radar (as well as another video I also just finished). Without Radar as a conduit, I probably would never have made the contact. Vixon Media ! We came across Emile and were struck by the raw talent and emotional sensibility crafted by someone so early on in their career Caviar London on Emile Rafael, former Radar director ! It's great to have the opportunity to create work for overseas artists. The connection Radar gives directors to artists around the world is totally worth the subscription fee. Phoebe Hartley ! Radar is a great way to get access to up and coming bands who have great tracks and need strong videos to support them. Having been commissioned through Radar I’d definitely say it’s worth the subscription! Josh Nolan.
