I'm Brian Carroll, founder of Crimzn. Creative video production, digital content, live events and photography are passions that I'm lucky enough to work in every day. I work closely with clients to setup and produce video and design content for relaxed interviews, case studies, promotional films, workshops and live conferences/events. And with a deep interest in Skills and Development in the Creative and Technology sectors, I regularly work with clients on promotional and training content. Depending on project requirements, crewing can be one man (me), a small or large team of experienced and professional media colleagues.
There have been fences for as long as there have been people, or at least ever since people developed the concept of property and liberty. Fencing hasn't changed much since then as it remains largely posts stuck in the ground with stuff attached to them. The stuff of fencing is slightly more sophisticated nowadays, but for most people a fence is just a fence and nobody thinks or cares about it until something goes wrong, or missing! "Fences are our business: there isn't much that we can't do or don't know about fences, and we are passionate about them. Why not let us take care of yours?".
