Jake Productions was created in 2004 by John Bernard, an already prolific British Line Producer who’d identified the urgent need for a more competitive and modernised approach to Production Servicing in France.
John was joined in 2006 by fellow Brit, Xavier Wakefield, himself bringing 15 years of experience gained in London and internationally, at the highest level of Commercials Film Production.
Both men were driven by a common goal: Not simply to elevate standards of Production Service above those of their French rivals, but to align Jake Productions with the very best found anywhere in the world.
The company’s rise was meteoric, no other Production Service Company in France can today boast a list of credits as lengthy or as illustrious as ours. Not for feature films, nor TV shows nor advertising campaigns, let alone all three.
But it is our passion, drive and determination, looking forward, that have kept us at the top for nearly 2 decades.
We are the 1st Production Service Company in France to successfully complete a campaign shoot with zero plastic waste. We are the only Production Service Company in France to have purchased our own PCR testing machines (2 of them) and source specialists in COVID supervision. We embrace Sustainable Productions and are at the forefront of its development in this country.
We’ve operated large productions in Paris, Marseille, Nice, Cannes, Monaco, Saint-Tropez, Aix-en-Provence, Toulon, Corsica, Dunkirk, Le Mans, Dordogne, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Saint-Emilion, Loire Valley, Strasbourg.
The production teams and technicians that we employ speak near perfect English and their talents can match the best found in London or Hollywood.
We want your production experience with us feel seamless, as if shooting at home with your own (albeit with better wine and cheese).
We want you (and your clients) to feel totally confident that your budget is in the safest hands imaginable.
We always seek the most cost-efficient approach to each production.
We strive to overdeliver.
