Adam Paylor, Director of FILMGUY Ltd.

FILMGUY Ltd. is a flexible media production service based in the UK, but operating around the world. Our clients range from global organisations to individuals, all striving to be heard in a busy digital landscape.

Whether you need an editor for your project, or an end-to-end production service, we can pull together a team to deliver your project on time and on budget.

My name is Adam. I cut my teeth as a self-shoot digital video producer for the BBC, where I had the pleasure and privilege of telling the stories of a huge variety of characters, from veterans and scientists to Regency dandies and vegan cats!


In 2020 I founded FILMGUY Ltd. with a mission to deliver multi-platform content flexibly, creatively and affordably. If you think we can be of service to you, get in touch!

FILMGUY Services & Rates

FILMGUY Ltd. offers both editing and a complete end-to-end production service. Whichever you need. 

Flexible Hourly Rates

After a few years in the business we've discovered that working on an hourly rate is easiest for everyone, as it allows a lot of flexibility and much better value for money. You don't have to book a block of full days and you're not limited to a fixed number of revisions.  Your project is picked up or paused to fit the schedule of you and your team, giving you all the time you need to review edits. What's more, all the equipment we have to hand is included in our hourly rate. There are no hidden costs. 

Quotes for Budget Management

Though we calculate your final invoice based on an hourly rate, we will still provide a quote for individual projects, so you can manage your budget secure in the knowledge that costs won't run out of control.

How much though?

For a tailored quote get in touch! But meanwhile, it's really annoying when you can't find the price tag isn't it? So here’s an approximate guide:


  • 1 Hour: £50

  • Full Day (up to 7hrs): £350


- Quality stock music and sound FX from

- Incorporation of your branding.

- Motion graphics, visual effects, subtitles etc.

- Any output format you need (mobile, social media, website, TV).


  • 1 Hour: £70

  • Full Day (up to 7hrs): £490



- One crew member (Often enough, but additional crew can be added)

- Film resolutions from HD to 4K UHD.

- Full public liability insurance up to £1m. 

From experience, one full day of filming usually requires 2-3 days of editing, which means a very rough ballpark figure for a project could be around £1,150-£1,500 + travel expenses.
