David has undertaken a number of filming projects for us at Aqua Sphere UK and we couldn’t recommend him highly enough. His thorough approach means that he truly understands our vision each time and the final results show this.
He is always a professional but makes sure that we have fun on set and that everyone is at ease during filming.
We wouldn’t look anywhere else for our filming requirements and we look forward to continuing working with David on future projects.
The film takes us through the journey and out the other side…and the many milestones along the way are insightful and entertaining, stimulating and though-provoking. This isn’t a movie about diving as much as it is a film about a diver who has a love affair with sharks. David Diley and his story are well worth the watching and I would heartily recommend Of Shark and Man to anyone who has a passion for the Ocean and for sharks. At 98 minutes, this is a full-length feature film…and like any good roller coaster, the best comes near the end…the last 10 minutes are absolutely amazing, with the most stunning footage of sharks I have ever seen.
“David Diley, of Scarlet View Media, filmed and graded the music video for my song “Tea”, directed and edited by HARUKO, as part of my debut album “Heart Of Stone.”
I was nothing short of impressed by the outcome. With one camera, and less than half a day in Yearsley Forest in North Yorkshire, David easily and beautifully captured the essence of my song. His ideas, and shots during the filming were uniquely captivating, practical and technically sound. The cold and intermittent bouts of rain only served to make the filming more adventurous. I look forward to working with him again.”
“David Diley listened to the brief, worked with our budget and came up with a smashing solution. His easy manner brought out the best in our speakers. This sounds something quite easy to achieve, it is not. Most speakers ‘feed’ off their audiences reaction. To talk cold into a camera and deliver an engaging presentation takes a working partnership. The speaker and the cameraman. David made this look effortless and put all our speakers at ease. The polished result is something gorgeous and useful and surpassed our expectations. We look forward to working with David in the future when we continue to build the EUROTEK TEKTalks library for divers worldwide.”
“Working with David has been a pleasure. He approached us with great ideas and has worked flexibly and creatively throughout the process. His attention to detail is second to none and his willingness to go the extra mile to get the right shot is apparent. He very quickly got under the skin of what we were trying to achieve and perfectly interpreted our ideas and ambitions for our films. The work that he has delivered is outstanding and not only meets our brief, but far exceeds our expectations. We’d be happy to recommend David as both an individual and as a professional, you’ll find him fun to work with, easy to work with and very capable of delivering fantastic, engaging work.”
“David Diley is, without a doubt, a great film maker… David is such an easy person to get along and work with, and however conscious he must have been of the need to press forward quickly, it never rubbed off on anyone else involved. A potentially stressful situation was made fun and creative. When morale was low, he was full of jokes, and when inspiration struck, he was quick to capture it. David and I were in regular contact during post-production, and the process was made very transparent and collaborative. The render button was not pressed until we both agreed that it was finished, and that communication was so, so effective and important. I can’t wait for the next opportunity we’ll have to work together!”
“Working with David on our first project together back in March 2011, he not only impressed me with his commitment to the project but also his extremely high level of professionalism, going above and beyond his responsibilities to ensure we produced at the highest quality possible. His creative skills are inspiring to say the least, leadership skills that motivate team members and an advisory ability that was and is endlessly appreciated. Having such a positive first experience with David has solidified not only a long term professional working relationship, but also a friendship that is built on respect, trust and common interest… Working with David Diley, being inspired by David Diley and enjoying productions by David Diley is an absolute pleasure!!”
“Mark has been wonderful in creating my promo video backing track. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted and somehow despite my very vague, brief descriptions he was able to put those visions into reality perfectly! He has been more than helpful in tweaking the edit to get to the final cut for which I am very grateful. I’d definitely recommend Mark and Scarlet View!”
“From the first time we met I knew we wouldn’t be disappointed and it was a huge weight of our shoulders to have someone so passionate, reliable and committed in charge of such an important part of our big day. You really put us at ease and thought of lots of aspects we hadn’t even considered. I was really pleased to see how professionally you handled everything from the start and I knew right away you were perfect for the job. I can’t tell you how thankful we are for all your hard work, we have a very stylish video to treasure forever and no matter how many times we watch it were always left wanting to see more, you really did capture the moment perfectly.
We cant recommend you highly enough, Not only have you left us with the perfect video but a great friend too.”
“David is a hugely talented Film-Maker with a bright future. His creativity, passion and innovative approach to whatever he does ensures that quality and style are always of the highest level… he is a joy to work with and is one of the very tiny number of people we have trusted to get truly up close and personal with our Bull Sharks here in Beqa Lagoon... We cannot wait to work with David again!”
“David’s professional approach and attention to detail is as impressive as it is effective. His recent short film “A Ray of Light” about the conservation of Stingrays in Mallorca demonstrates this passionate approach to storytelling in this visual medium. I am very impressed with this early work and look forward to more from this promising film-maker.”
“We had no doubts that you would do an awesome job, but we were not prepared for your enthusiasm and energy in getting the best out of us and the settings we chose for the shoot.You got us all motivated in trying different places, even when we thought the shoot was over, you suggested other places to try out which we are happy you did because it produced even more amazing material for us to work with. It was a great pleasure working with you. Thank you for all your effort in getting the best out of us and presenting us with something awesome to promote the band with… On behalf of all of Liber Necris, Thank you”
“David was superb, not only did he immediately understand my requirements, he delivered a brilliant piece of emotive work that was far beyond my expectations. The entire project had to be planned, filmed and produced to the client within 7 days and this was achieved through excellent communication, a professional approach on the day of filming and a realistic management of mine and my client’s expectations. David is also a very nice bloke which goes a long way in the creative world! Highly recommended.”
