John produced a short corporate video for us, and despite the very tight deadline, he worked on it very efficiently and with very clear and succinct communication throughout. This made it a real pleasure to work with John. We were delighted with the results and I have already recommended him to others.

Black Pepper Studios has produced two short videos for BPI over the last couple of years due to our involvement with the Greenock Chamber of Commerce Bee’s Knees awards. Following the awards initiatives we commissioned a longer version of the video footage and were very happy with the professionalism of the team and their technical abilities, as well as the outcome of the project.

John S. Caldwell and Black Pepper Studios have been responsible for an outstanding range of work for UWS. I have no hesitation in endorsing their work.

John and Black Pepper Studios have been absolutely great to work with. From the start he has helped greatly with our productions bringing a wealth of experience, knowledge and professionalism to our team. I’d highly recommend John for any project no matter what size or style.

Ross Livingstone, Year One Music


We worked with John at Black Pepper Studios to create a promotional Christmas video for our online childrens boutique, Toucan Kids. The end result is more than we had hoped for, it’s funny, cheeky & shows our products off really well. Start to finish, John was a breeze to work with, nothing was too much trouble. I’d recommend Black Pepper to anyone who’s looking for a creative approach to promoting their business.

Marianne Muir, Director, Toucan Kids


With very limited time and budget John managed to create a video that was professional, slick and captured the mood we were aiming for. Easy to work with, a speedy turn around time and an excellent finished product.
