The Team - Maria Aparicio, Mitch Panayis and Roter Su

East 15 Films

We are a young, fresh, London based production company who believe that story is central to everything we do. Whether it’s brand awareness, product showcasing or educational material you’re after, a human story backed up with striking visuals and no-nonsense copy can really engage your audience. Visual stories and characters drive content that can sit in any space. Whether to entertain, provoke thought, educate or sell, a story is a story is a story.


East 15 Films are an independent production company creating documentaries alongside engaging, brand focused promotional films and photographic materials for a variety of companies and organisations. Set up in 2010 by Mitch Panayis (BA, MA, PhD Filmmaking), we use a tight knit collection of freelancers with a wide range of industry experience, alongside our resident filmmakers who have worked together on a vast array of projects, meaning you’re always in safe hands.


Celebreak Espana Football Organisation, Spain

East 15 Films spent a few weeks in Madrid taking photos and videos of our games. Mitch, the Director, is one of the most talented, creative and easy-to-get-along with photographers/videographers that we have worked with. The communication with him was excellent and he is attentive to the needs of the client in order to deliver the best work possible. Mitch always suggests what he thinks it’s best for the session with a very creative and skilled approach. He really caught our company essence and the message we wanted to deliver. 

Both the videos and photos produced are very high quality. This is due to a combination of great equipment and high skills and experience in the photography and videography industry. He did a really good job with a lot of patience, energy and creativity that will be super useful in all of our communication and social media. He demonstrated flexibility and showed great initiative during the days that we worked with him, offering ideas of his own. Mitch ensured that we received high resolution versions of the images and footage shortly after the event, meaning that we were able to meet our deadlines.

Thank you East 15 Films, we hope to have you soon in Madrid!


Jack Wilshere’s NCF Elites Football Academy

East 15 Films have worked with us on numerous projects, from our initial launch event to a long form documentary about our journey to the Gothia Cup in 2019, as well as coach training session videos, recruitment videos, new centre video and photography materials, and setting up and managing a new social media channel. They must have provided over 100 videos for us as well as photographic material. They have always been very professional, open and reliable but their key asset for us was the passion they showed in quickly getting to know our brand and how we want to grow, and then consistently pitching ideas to us on how we could create content to engage others with these principles. Although they were a hired company, this alignment with us and their desire to help us build and grow really placed them within our organisation. I would have no hesitation recommending them.

Working with East 15 Films is a pleasure. Mitch and his team listen carefully to the brief and work with us to produce excellent high quality content which is produced in many formats to be used across all media. No job is too big or too small and the more we work together the more they understand our culture and values. Filming can be daunting and stressful but Mitch works so well with us to put all the people involved at ease and gets the very best of out of everyone.  



Fitfam Fitness Studios, London

I contacted East 15 Films to help me to promote my business and the new class timetable we were hoping to implement. My hopes for the videos were to inform clients of new class timetables, what the new classes would be and how they would be taught, and to show video feedback from current clients on their journey with us. To be honest my brief was vague in places, as I am useless with the promo/marketing side of things, and Mitch was amazing with talking me through it, giving suggestions and guidance, and creating a visual of what we could produce together and how it would be received by potential (and current) clients.

Mitch was so easy to work with, I instantly felt at ease to discuss my ideas, and extremely professional at all times. It was a difficult brief, in that we wanted as many of our clients to be a part of it, which meant East 15 had a lot of (non-professional) participants to direct and work with, but they did it so fantastically well, and not only did they get amazing footage, but everyone who contributed really enjoyed being a part of it. I honestly couldn’t be happier with the final videos we received; it went way beyond what myself and business partner had expected.

The videos were received amazingly well and sales enquiries increased 200% once the videos were released. Many of these enquiries fed back to us that it was really great for them to have a visual of how our service runs, as it made them much more comfortable to start their fitness journey with us, once they could see in the videos the community that we had created. I would highly recommend East 15 films, whether it be for sales and promotion purposes, or informative. The videos and photos they provided for us successfully enhanced our business, and continues to do so today. Thank you again to East 15 for the incredible service, I would certainly use them again in the future.


Restyle Barbers Academy, London 

East 15 Films worked with us over a 6 month period, across both of our North London sites, producing short social ads for our social platforms, swell as meet the staff, virtual tour and services videos. They also created impactful imagery through photography and graphic design, that kept our socials going for months. They were happy to follow strict briefs as well as script their own ideas, which was invaluable to us. And they worked very professionally in a fast paced hectic environment, knowing when to give us space and being patient gathering the footage they needed. We will definitely be bringing them on board for more projects in the future. Thanks East 15 Films! 

St James CofE School, London 

East 15 Films has worked with us as a school on numerous occasions. From the beginning they were putting forward a range of creative ideas in line with the ethos of the school, talking us through step by step on how these ideas could be realised and giving us plenty of options. In addition, East 15 always ensured that videos and photos fed back into our brand building with the result that our website has attracted a whole raft of extremely positive comments.

As a company they are a pleasure to work with, always on time and very professional, even if the demands of a busy school interrupted the planned timetable. Our projects were turned around very quickly, and the quality of their work never failed to impress. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you East 15 Films!
