I'm a producer/editor or "preditor" as industry labels go. I create films - some long, some short, broadcast, corporate and industrial genres. Many projects solo others require a small team of dedicated professionals. No matter the project or level of staffing, I always offer the audience new-information, insight and inspiration.
I enjoy the challenge of moving an audience, shifting emotional space to make the viewing experience memorable allowing me to pursue incredible storylines, themes and concepts using a myriad of editing techniques.
I've been fortunate to work with great companies offering outstanding products and services. From the heat seeking ability of infrared, communications and electronic manufacturing, retail sales, heavy-industry, agriculture, along with a multitude of others.
Client conceptual or my own work, I dedicate myself to every project I work on, no matter format, genre or length.
I'm John Webb, I tell important stories together let's tell yours.

I offer extensive experience using infrared/thermal camera technology to capture night, sport and thermal analysis media. Infrared cameras provides a stunning look at the world around us in a variety of standard and custom LUT's.
We have extensive experience in SWIR, MWIR, LWIR in both cooled and uncooled Microbolometer models from major manufacturers including - FLIR, Fluke and Seek. I've output I/R to video in a number of high-demand "Learn to Burn" fire-fighting professional training settings, as well as, multi-camera side-by-side comparisons with up to 16 cameras at once. With infrared now going mainstream and prices of uncooled cores continuing to drop, we'll see new and innovative ways thermal imaging is put to use in the coming years.
Thermal acquisition, HD, 4K, 5K and up, none of this is useful without a solid grip/light compliment so we offer flexible jib, slider and multiple lighting options for basic to advanced interview and production setups easy and affordable.
