HOW WE WORK
In an age where attracting the attention of the music industry is competitive and expensive as ever, Giguana offers London's musicians a new, affordable way to get noticed.
Our clients use their filmed live shows to attract the attention of record labels, advertise their upcoming shows and spread the word about their music on social media.
Founded by a musician and a music-focussed filmmaker, we provide our clients with a personal service from start to finish.
Our filmmakers have decades of industry experience in live music filming big names such as Jamie xx, Fatima Yamaha & Rudimental.

We know our clients prefer to mix their live recordings themselves, so it's the artist's responsibility to obtain the audio from the show. All venues are able to supply you with a recording of the show, so be sure to e-mail them prior to your show to organise this.
As two young musicians who didn’t have a lot of cash, we really struggled to find a solution that we could both afford and trust when it came to getting our gig filmed.
We started our band ‘Kid Violet’ back in 2014 whilst at University in York and three years later found ourselves living in London, and taking the whole band thing a bit more seriously. We’re a good band to watch live so wanted to get a set of ours filmed. We realised we had two options.
The first was to pay a traditional live music company £10,000+ to bring in big TV cameras, large crews and rigs. And well, that wasn’t really an option financially. The second was to find a team of freelancers - but we’d need to find them with matching kit, agreed settings, we’d have to direct them ourselves and then deal with post production - never mind the issue of trusting that they’d be any good.
It’s was at that point that Giguana was born. We realised that real musicians needed a live music filming service that they could both trust and afford - and that our company would be the first to deliver both sides of the spectrum.
Two musicians, one a film director and the other an economics graduate, on a mission to provide a professional, affordable live music filming service to the world’s musicians.
Since launching our company in London at the start of 2017, we spent a year perfecting our model before opening branches in 9 cities across the world, with a further 28 anticipated by the end of 2020.
It really is an honour to offer musicians a service like Giguana. We're always more than happy to chat with our clients, so if you'd like to get in touch with either of us - we’d love to hear from you:
All the best,
Jack & Billy
+ DO GIGUANA RECORD THE AUDIO TOO?
We understand artists prefer to mix the audio themselves so it's the artist's responsibility to send us the audio recording of the show. Venues will always give the artist the option to record the audio direct from the mixing desk.
+ DO GIGUANA DO PHOTOS TOO?
Photos are included in our premium package - but you can also order photography as an add-on to any package upon checkout for £149. You can see our portfolio here.
+ WHAT IF I'D LIKE CHANGES MADE TO MY VIDEO?
Re-edits aren't included in our pricing. However, feel free to get in touch and we'll see what we can do.
+ CAN GIGUANA USE OUR FOOTAGE FOR THEIR OWN USE?
We use our footage to promote our business - however we do always seek permission from the artist before we do so.
+ DO GIGUANA RECORD SHOWS OUTSIDE OF LONDON?
Yes, we are in Manchester and London!
+ CAN WE OBTAIN THE RUSHES FROM THE SHOW?
You sure can. We charge £50 to process and transfer the rushes. If you'd like to obtain the rushes from your show, please inform Giguana HQ before hand on firstname.lastname@example.org.
