When you want high grade video to support and showcase your talent, you need an experienced sound and video producer. Higrade films has an experienced one man crew, Ade Cove who owns the company.

I recently arranged for Ade to film one of my speeches. Ade is a real professional and is a pleasure to work with. Shortly after my speech arrived with great sound
and pictures. The editing was also top notch. He used multiple cameras, so I had some really nice clips audience reactions. He captured the event really well. If you need a professional videographer I would definitely recommend Ade!

Professional Speaker

I’ve been lucky enough to be filmed (and that film to be edited) by Ade Cove on a number of occasions; those videos are now a core part of my YouTube channel  and social media content. Ade is easy to work with, very professional and open to ideas and suggestions. His videos have made a quantifiable difference to my business, helping me to win new work as a speaker and compere.

A little bit about Adrian ( otherwise known as Ade ).

Having studied animation and video in early 1990’s I went on to be a runner at molinare , a major London post production company.

In 1998 took the plunge and went self employed . Working as an assistant editor, technician and digitiser (yes, those were the days of tape). Working for a huge variety of broadcasters, production companies and production managers primarily in the documentary and current affairs fields. By 2003 technology had moved on and I was able to pursue my interest in filming so I brought my first professional video cameras ( Sony z5, dvx100) and editing equipment (final cut pro ) I began filming live music, comedy and theatre and producing dvd’s. I teamed up with other industry freelancers and formed highaltitudefilms.
