Tisrespects Radical Lounge Creative Discussion Event

Endorsement

Summer Isle Films have been involved in the Radical Lounge project from the word go. I had invited Tom Newman (founder of Summer Isle Films) to sit on the advisory board for the Radical Lounge project based on the extent of his film production expertise and community knowledge. I had first engaged with Summer Isle Films whilst working as part of a Suffolk based creative/media youth project in Stowmarket and again, a little later, during their video production support for local artist: Simone Dorset. Working with Summer Isle Films has offered new dynamics to the way in which we (at Tisrespect) engage our community. Summer Isle Films have consistently raised the bar with their standard of work and support for local initiatives. Tisrespect are proud to be apart of a network that includes organisations like Summer Isle Films, who's work has and will continue to inspire our own work. Summer Isle Films come with our highest recommendation. Kind regards Curtis Blanc

Battle of the Somme Evening

Endorsement

As part and parcel of my community involvement I decided to give a talk on The Battle of the Somme on 1st July at the Angela Cobbold Hall in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of this battle where many of our local villagers died on the first day. My talk contained many illustrations but thanks to Tom Newman of Summer Isle Films he created a very professional cine DVD of actual footage of the battle which gave great authenticity and proved very moving to the audience. His contribution was given free of charge which enabled the retiring collection to make a beneficial donation to the local church Roof Fund Appeal.

East Anglian Student Film Festival 2015

Endorsement

We had the pleasure of being supported yet again by Summer Isle Films in 2015. Tom, and Summer Isle Films, are champions of local film makers and student film makers. The festival has benefited hugely from their input and support - their advice a positive approach has been invaluable. One of the most impressive aspects of their support has been there resourcefulness and response time - Tom and his team have always responded very promptly to emails and calls - they went above and beyond to ensure the festival's success. We count ourselves very fortunate to have such a talented yet very grounded production company supporting us.

Ipswich Has Got Talent 2015

Endorsement

I cannot praise enough the extent of support from Tom (SummerIsle Studio) for Ipswich Has Got Talent. This show is much more than a talent sure, it brings together all ages, cultures and faiths to celebrate talent in a safe environment. The contribution by Tom both personally and professionally is second to none and goes way beyond the call of duty. He is respected by his peers and truly makes a difference to the event, before, during and after. I have no hesitation in endorsing both Tom and SummerIsle Studio

Work Experience

Endorsement

I don't think I'd be where I am today with the knowledge and skill in Filmmaking without having the first helping hand from Tom on my Year 10 Work Experience placement. I still to this day help out on shoots with him and learn a hell of a lot of valuable knowledge and experience.

Its always a pleasure working with Summer Isle films, somehow they always find time to action funds within couple of days of completing work. Safe in the knowledge i wont be waiting months for money, i always find time to go the extra mile, in my opinion they really do get the best out of me!

Tom is a pleasure to do business with.

Andrew Laws - 02 December 2015

Paying on time is often an issue for freelancers, if the client pays 30 days after the shoot, then the creaters of the film pay their staff 30 days after that then it is the freelancer who is getting payed most likely after 60 days. That is if people even stick to the 30 days ideal. I do not know anyone else in any industry who would accept getting being payed for a job after 60 days. Tom and Summerisle films have never payed late and have always payed as soon as the client has payed them. This is a business model that works, people are happy to work for him and you can see it by how hard his staff are prepared to work for him, I have even had him pay early out of the company budget to comply within the 30 days window but this puts the company at risk as they may need money to finance the next shoot or job. I thank Tom and Summer Isle for his commitment to paying his staff on time and hope to work for him again in the future.

Laurence Scott - 20 July 2016

Always a pleasure to work for Summer Isle Films. Knowing your going to be paid on time helps build better working relationships and makes the whole experience more enjoyable.

I've had nothing but good experiences working with Summer Isle - payment has come very promptly, earlier than expected in fact. I hope to continue working with them in the future.
