Redstart Film specialise in producing online video content for the creative and educational sectors. We have years of experience in video and audio production, documentary and training.

We are Nick Leyland and Jon Tipler, two Manchester based freelancers. We brought our skills together in 2014 by founding Redstart Film to maximise our potential and offer greater value for money. Please take a look at our portfolio and get in touch to find out more about collaborating with us.




Video Production

Creativity is at the heart of our work. We produce high quality and engaging videos that meet your vision and budget.

Product Photography

In the studio or on location, we can produce high resolution and web-optimised photographs for your online store or marketplace.

Training & Education

While it’s often essential to outsource, we recognise what it means to be self-sufficient and the value of education in harnessing in-house skills…it’s always nice to learn something new! Whether it’s learning how to use a new camera, top-up on basic editing techniques or design and implement workflows to suit your needs, we are ready to deliver bespoke one-to-one and group training sessions.





  • “I am totally happy with the video and photo content that now graces my website. I will not hesitate to use Jon and Nick again, due to their amicable professionalism and the high quality of their work. These are the guys you need!”

  • “Redstart Film have done an excellent job in producing a video that both represents Bury College University Centre and appeals to our target audience.  The graphics and imagery used positively reflect our branding and positioning and the team were both friendly and professional to work with.  This is our first video for Bury College University Centre and we’re delighted with the final result.”
