What our clients say

“It was a pleasure to work with Maritime Films UK on our latest Careers at Sea video series title Sea Life – See Life. Rob is a true professional with a passion for our maritime industry and that was palpable throughout the project. We are extremely happy with the end results and would like to thank Rob and the team for all their time, effort and support.”

Susan Bell, Training and Careers Manager, Merchant Navy Training Board

“Maritime Films UK have been a joy to work with and have worked so hard to ensure the Wellington Trust has received the best possible product. You really have gone above and beyond. I can't thank you enough!”

Rebecca Swan, ‘Future Maritime Engineers’, The Wellington Trust

“A great piece of work. Archive material was neatly slotted in, and the objective, to show the making of the new Coastal Forces Museum, its purpose and context, was totally met. The commentary hit the spot too, interesting and amusing rather than heavy, and the editing matched the theme. You have produced something you can be proud of!”

Alan Watson OBE, The Coastal Forces Heritage Trust and HDML ‘Medusa’ on ‘The Night Hunters’

“Crikey Rob. You and the guys have excelled yourselves. I’ve got nothing, I literally had tears in my eyes watching that. Great job.”

Nick Hewitt, Head of Collections and Research, The National Museum of the Royal Navy on ‘D-Day Delivered – The Story of Landing Craft Tank 7074. 3: Revelation’

“Maritime Films UK have produced two films about the ‘Fairmile’ RML 497, a WWII Coastal Forces vessel which arrived with us in 2019. The films quickly proved themselves to be indispensable for informing staff and volunteers about the ship, and their quality is such that we intend to show them on site as part of the visitor experience. Furthermore, Rob White’s enthusiasm and commitment have been really impressive, and made the whole process easy and enjoyable.”

Clare Hunt, Curator, National Museum of the Royal Navy, Hartlepool

“Maritime Films UK was contracted to produce a cadet recruitment video for the Trinity House Merchant Navy Scholarship Scheme, aiming to attract high calibre candidates. The result was a professional and informative film that illustrated the dynamics of the Merchant Navy and opportunities afloat and ashore in the maritime industry. The service provided by Maritime Films UK was first class, gave good value and met all our expectations.”

Captain Nigel Hope, RD* RNR, Director of Cadet Training, Trinity House

“We are so pleased with the original, funny but lively and hard-hitting animated film Maritime Films UK produced for the Maritime Transport Section of the ETF, and would recommend to anyone working with these cheerful and enthusiastic professionals. Delivering real value for money, they bring in extra ideas and fresh inspiration leading to results that go above and beyond the expectations of customers and partners.”

Philippe Alfonso, Political Secretary for Maritime Transport, European Transport Workers’ Federation (ETF)

“Our new film from Maritime Films UK persuasively captures Warrior’s story, beautifully illustrating her history, her current work and her future challenges. It has been hugely helpful, especially in our work promoting the Warrior in off-site presentations and display.”

Commander Tim Ash, Chief Executive and Captain, HMS WARRIOR 1860

“We are delighted with the video that Maritime Films UK have produced for ISWAN. They were able to deliver a quality professional video within a limited budget. We would definitely work with them again”

Roger Harris, Executive Director, International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network

“We were immediately pleased with the careful attention to detail made to the script and the planning of every recording. Rob White's explanation of the relevant 'tricks of the trade', and the avoidance of pitfalls, ensured everyone placed in front of a camera was at ease. Nothing was too much trouble. We will commission Maritime Films UK again”

Captain John Rose MNM, ExC, Director (Maritime), CHIRP – Confidential Hazardous Incident Reporting Programme

“This is a lovely production by Maritime Films UK and we are particularly pleased with the high quality achieved, on budget. The team worked really well interviewing our trainees under way on a Thames barge, despite the weather – great job!”

Hannah Cunliffe, Policy and Project Manager, National Historic Ships UK

“What an absolute pleasure it has been to work with an organisation that is able to understand and bring together the complexities of maritime archive footage, heritage restoration and the enthusiasm of a volunteer workforce into video presentations and touch screen shorts that are now receiving rave reviews from all who see them. Well done Maritime Films UK”

James Robson, Chief Officer, SS Shieldhall

“Maritime Films UK have been a joy to work with and the finished HMS Victory film is great. It tells a complex story in an accessible and easily understood manner, and within one day of being uploaded to the web had been viewed 320,000 times. Incredible!”

Andrew Baines, Head of Historic Ships, National Museum of the Royal Navy

“I just want to thank you for all your brilliant work — we are really happy with everything. All our directors were delighted with the film!”
