Captured Essence is an audiovisual production company. Director Dick van den Oever has over 30 years of exceptional technical skills and it is his ability to get the best out of people that stands him apart from his competitors.   Whether he captures the moment on stage, on camera, or in a corporate meeting, he brings innovation and integrity which gives you a production of the very highest quality.


The first step is always taken with you, but before we can even begin our journey together, we must first scope what needs to happen, and what message must be communicated.

With the answer to these questions in place, we are able to move forward with confidence, knowing that we share the same picture of success.

-  Who is your audience?

-  What is the message you want to get across?

-  How do you want your audience to feel?

-  What do you want the audience to do with the information?

-  What is the time frame and

-  What is your budget?


Our pricing conforms to the market. We quote in detail so you know exactly what it is that you are paying for. We value your business and find loyalty way more important than short term gain.
