Adrian Lazarus has built on his energetic involvement, over the past fifteen years, in the Production Industry to create Mercury Productions.
He has an outstanding grasp of first class production values and what it takes to execute a successful shoot both timeously and within budget.
After six years of producing shoots for fashion stills he moved into the world of video. Applying his hands-on approach and sharp eye for detail, from the story-board to the filming, as well as his excellent understanding of lighting, he has professionally conducted many successful shoots. Combining all this with his skill and feel for the editing process, you get a winning package.
As a Film Director, Adrian brings a quality to his work that is both sensitive and gritty. “I am particularly fond of my short lenses that render the backgrounds out of focus and create a wonderful feeling with the use of Bokeh. I am always on the look out for old, manual lenses that can be adapted to my projects. Directing is as much a passion for me as the need to feel fulfilled, to feel complete."
"Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude."
- Ralph Marston
