Branded content video production, from concept to completion - for LESS than you'd expect.


About Apple Orchard Productions

Most video production companies are bloated.  They have big, expensive offices, employ too many staff, and spend too much money on things that aren't directly connected to producing video.

Apple Orchard is a small, scalable company that can fit the size of production that is needed.  Instead of forcing every production into a high-budget range, we can offer you different options - and be clear about what you're getting at different price levels.

This is not a one-size-fits-all type of company - we'll custom build our productions around your own requirements and budgets.

And then there's the creative - we LOVE great creative, and it shows in our work.

Nick Appleton

Owner and Executive Producer

Over the years, Nick has worked many roles in video production, although his main focus has been in the area of directing and producing.  He likes nothing more than collaborating with interesting people, with a shared goal of creating amazing content.

A veteran of commercial production at Canadian broadcasters and media companies, Nick excels in adapting to the scope of the project, and working equally well in large productions, and with "budget-challenged" projects.

His list of contacts is extensive, and he always knows the right person for the job.


Production During a Pandemic

There are safe production options during this time

During this unprecedented time, everyone has to adapt their usual methods.  I wanted to highlight someone in the community who has made a crucial change, utilizing a different production method - the 1 person crew.  

This video had exactly 1 production person on site for a half day - director, cinematographer, drone pilot, audio record.  All roles were done by one person.  Physical distancing was strictly adhered to and all safety precautions were taken.  And since there was time, I also handled all post-production, too - editing, colour grading, audio mix.

This option works really well for a lot of "doc-style" productions.  Also, since there is only 1 person on set, the costs go down - significantly!

There are other safe options out there too.  Get in touch and we can discuss what makes sense for your production.

Creative Development

If you're looking for original creative, then you've come to the right place.  We can put together some concepts with accompanying visuals in a flash - it's what we love to do!

Behind the Scenes


We love shooting video.  We like to have fun, and shoots can be a ton of fun, if the pre-production work has happened.  It also helps to be working with the best crews there are.



Everything needs post work.  We work with the best in the business, and can do any kind of post that you require - video editing, audio, VFX, 3D animation - we've got this.
