Please take a look at our reels and credits. Shooting these programmes required a high level of physical fitness which we love and the knowledge to use of a wide range of technical equipment including lipstick cams, mini cams and underwater housings in difficult and sometimes precarious situations. 

This site is testament to our mantra of integrity in our work. INTEGRITY means keeping your word and doing what it takes to get the job done. "For us to live any other way was nuts" -- Goodfellas. Contact: miracles-included@local81.jp
