Who are we? DAVideo are a video film production company. We specialise in producing films about road passenger transport subjects (with some notable exceptions). We aim to produce high quality films that are exciting and informative. We also specialise in graphic design, and produce a series of fine art limited edition prints, which are, in some cases, contemporary photographs, or are historical photographs which have been coloured, or historical artefacts that have been digitally restored.

Try us out! You can't lose! We know (we did the research!) that the perception of films about buses is that they are generally poor. We strive to be different. All our personnel have been chosen for their abillity in taking good quality film shots, or their abilities in post-production. Most have qualifications in their chosen subject. But you don't have to take our word for it.

Our terms and conditions state: "We aim to provide you with a completely satisfactory product or service.
If, in your opinion, we fail to provide you with a satisfactory product or service, then we will refund your money, or waive our fees."

If you purchase one of our DVDs, or our limited edition prints, and you find that you are not happy, we will refund your payment.

The price you see is the price you pay to us. The price quoted on our site is the price that you pay. we do not charge any extra for delivering the item to you. To quote our terms again: "We deliver free to any destination on the planet covered by a mail service."

Please note that for orders from outside the UK, we have no control over customs duties or taxes. These may be charged on the item(s) by your local excise department.

Quick despatch. We will always choose first class post or its international equivalent, with a speedy despatch:  "Any product which you order, we aim to despatch by first class mail or equivalent, on the same day or next day after we receive your order."

Latest videos on YouTube

We now have three videos live on YouTube.

The first was filmed last year when Lloyd's of Machynlleth had an Optare Metrodecker on demo.

I filmed a ride from Aberystwyth to Machynlleth and back. The video can be seen here.

The second film was made by us for the Leicester Transport Heritage Trust for their Crowdfunder project to return BMMO S22, 5905, to the road following serious engine problems. View it here.

The third video was filmed at the Transport Museum at Wythall on July 16th.

It was the launch party for Rapido Trains' first british bus model.

01384 235009 - What's in a number?

A number of you may have tried to contact us recently via our landline. If you have, then please accept our apologies.

With incompetence that is virging on the ridiculous, a major telecommunications company tried to port our number to their network, and lost it!

Thankfully, but only after writing to the CEO of the company, we now have the telephone number back.

After having the number for approximately 37 years, I felt a little bit proprietorial towards it, but, of course, more importantly, it is the number by which you all know to be able to talk to us.

Please give us a call. As another company once said, "It's good to talk".

Experiment in video downloads

In the coming months, we aim to experiment by making some of our videos available by download from web streaming site(s).

The advantage of this is that you can choose to either rent or buy the video, and later videos that have been produced in HD can be made available in this format.

Another advantage is that we will be able to produce shorter videos, that would not be viable as a DVD production.

Watch this space!

We'd love to meet you.

Our next rally is at Wythall on 8th October 2017. We look forward to seeing you there.
