The Base Sessions

The Base Sessions are produced by Base Video at the studio or on location.

Our team is fully equipped for filming on location and, because we strive to be as unobtrusive as possible, we are able to produce high-quality video with the minimum of inconvenience.

Since 2009 The Base Sessions team has been working in partnership with the Newsquest Media Group to produce short, high-quality video packages featuring a variety of guests.

Video features have been filmed at a range of locations around Britain, the team has been in action  in many different settings; filming during concert performances and backstage at rock festivals plus on the red carpet at a prestigious showbiz awards ceremony.

The Base Sessions was initially created to showcase new talent in the West Midlands as a collaboration between Newsquest and Base Studios.

Video packages were available via dedicated web pages on Newsquest sites across the West Midlands and Worcestershire for a potential audience currently estimated to be more than 300,000.

The initial success of the feature attracted bigger names and The Base Sessions now regularly includes national and international stars.

The higher profile and quality of production earned The Base Sessions a slot on Wall of Sound, a new music show broadcast on channels across the globe, including Ovation TV the USA and VH-1 in India.

The Base Sessions in filmed in a relaxed and informal atmosphere and, if necessary, packages can be edited and completed in-house at Base Video’s studio.

Many thousands of viewers have logged-on to watch The Base Session via the internet and our new partnership with the producers of Wall of Sound means a global TV audience will now see why the project has been so successful.
