Former Series Producer, Sunday Politics South East, BBC
Pete Lloyd Williams was the Shoot/Edit crew for the Sunday Politics between September 2015 and April 2019. As such he was a crucial member of the team, filming and assembling a short film which served as the centrepiece of each week's programme. These films were between 3 and 5 minutes long and covered issues as diverse as house building, gambling, fishing and modern slavery.
We took a current affairs approach to our films, so each one was carefully shot to give it a creative feel and, as well as having a sharp editorial focus, included music and picture sequences. Pete again was a key person in the conception and delivery of these films and he made great use of technology including gimbles and dollies, extensive use of graphics over shots and as stand-alone elements of the films to illustrate key statistics. He also often included the use of imaginative techniques such as stop motion animation.
Pete also has an excellent eye for a shot, so our films were beautifully staged, making the most of the locations whether they were coastlines, the countryside or, more challenging, interiors of care homes, nurseries and other institutions.
As well as bringing these excellent technical skills to the programme, Pete is a hard worker and a great team player. He'll always go the extra mile and he's a joy to work with. During his time on the Sunday Politics South East, he developed great working relationships with contributors, reporters and with the wider team.
I couldn't recommend working with Pete more highly.

“Despite the constrictions and added stress of working in the midst of the pandemic, we had a brilliant day filming for our client, The Mobility Furniture Company, with Pete. Pete made it easy and fun from start to finish… and the end results exceeded our expectations. Our client is delighted and we will certainly be back to Tower Pictures for more.”

I worked with Peter on the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2019, where he was the official cameraman for the 12 area events and the UK final in London.
Peter was organised, professional and discreet throughout, expertly filming natural shots of people enjoying themselves at each of the awards ceremonies. What’s more, he produced a series of superb post-event highlights packages and a brilliant forty-second showreel of me ‘in action’ that truly captured my on-stage presenting style.
Peter is a gifted cameraman and video producer who is a pleasure to work with. His 25 years’ experience in the industry shines through and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Director of Communications
Tower Pictures covered all of FSB's area Celebrating Small Business Awards which culminated in a national final at Battersea Evolution in London which involved not only filming all the award winners but also the Chancellor Phillip Hammond. The filming, editing and all the videos have been really professional and the ability to turn the material around quickly has been key to our social media coverage.

Pete is someone I always look forward to working with. He is a great listener, a creative thinker and is solutions orientated. His work stands out as beautifully shot, seamlessly edited and delivered with a smile. Behind the camera, he is adept at putting interviewees and contributors at their ease and has an intuitive eye for those key shots. Pete is extremely experienced with Final Cut Pro X and excellent with music and animated graphics - and, it's in the edit suite where he best demonstrates his brilliant ability to tell and convey great stories. Put all these skills together and you get engaging films, bang on the brief, that are crafted with care. I hope to work with you again soon, Pete

The Consumer Show
When 'The Consumer Show' airing on Irish Broadcaster RTE wanted to shoot in the UK, they contacted us to provide the crewing.
"I just want to say thank you very much for your work on last Saturday's shoot, both Joe and Yvonne were full of praise for your professionalism, camera skill and pleasant manner. I will happily recommend you if I come across any productions looking for a cameraman in the greater London area."
Aileen HeaveyProduction Manager, The Consumer Show
"I have worked in television for 14 years and chose Tower pictures to produce my video pitch to BBC“Dragons Den”- I wanted a professional, highly skilled and friendly company to deal with and that’s exactly what I got!
My film was so good that the producers from the BBC kept showing my film in their promos for pitches on national television- something I hadn’t bargained for but I think shows how good Tower pictures really are!
Excellent camera work, great editing and a fast turnaround just showed you’re second to none.
Thank you so much and I look forward to working with you again."
