It’s been a pleasure working with Squeaky Pedal. They produced 7 short films featuring 4 historic sites over a few months, and we have shared their films with some of our filmmakers in other areas as examples of what they should be aiming for.
As Squeaky Pedal’s films required so little editing work, they were prompt to turn edits around, and they ensured factual/historical accuracy before submission, theirs are the first films from this case studies project that we’ve been able to put live on our site. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for other projects, and have already done so internally at Historic England.

From the moment we received Squeaky Pedal's application, we knew that their collaborative, creative approach was exactly what we were looking for. They created an impressive range of digital assets in an extremely tight timescale, with a warm and friendly manner that engaged even the most camera shy of our volunteers. Highly recommended!

We are so pleased with the films that Squeaky Pedal produced to mark the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Britain. The accounts of men and women who experienced this extraordinary period of history were handled sensitively and thoughtfully, and the accompanying images and striking animations help us to share their experiences with today’s audiences. Your passion for bringing stories to life, combined with your professionalism, makes you a pleasure to work with and we can highly recommend Squeaky Pedal to others who are thinking of film projects. Thank you!

We showed the film that Squeaky Pedal produced for us ‘My Town is Crewe’ to our funders and they absolutely loved it – it brought tears of happiness to many people’s eyes!

I congratulate the film makers on ‘This Little Chicken & The Victoria Cross’ in tackling a subject which was never filmed. Their brave and imaginative use of multiple forms of media brought a compelling and fascinating story to life – winning the ‘Best Use of Archive Award’ at the Imperial War Museum Film Festival.

We have been able to use the film with great effect to raise awareness of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and also the important role of the Cathedral in providing a service to the community on such significant occasions.

Finding Wee Paddy is the most remarkable of World War II stories, something you haven’t heard before. It’s about love, memory and most of all, family.

Squeaky Pedal filmed our charity 10K race in Victoria Park, London. They were an absolute pleasure to work with; great at giving suggestions when speaking to the camera in a really nice way so you didn’t feel so self-conscious, very professional and endeavoured to make a great quality film. We will certainly be working with him again in near the future.
