CREATIVE PRODUCER // CORPORATE. ADVERTISING. SHORT FORM VIDEO.
BRINGING THE IDEA TO LIFE IN THE WORLD OF YOUR AUDIENCE.

Although it’s not super glam, one of my favourite things to produce is wedding films. Mostly because I have 100% creative control and client budgets aren’t an issue. Along with a couple different filmmakers I employ for Gracie May Photography, I have produced all of the following wedding films.

A company can have the best initiatives, but if they’re not telling their story, how will the world know? The Programme :: Farming for the Future is an extensive education programme to help address the shortage of skilled workers entering the agri-food sector. The Video :: To help tell the story of what M&S is…

Just a little testimonial video about our success with a unique piece of equipment for my disabled daughter Grace. …Because what’s better than telling people your products are awesome? Letting your customers do it instead. Client success stories are a strong, emotive way to take your current customers and pair them up with your future…

The videos in this series were the first things I ever produced back in 2014. Background :: At a time when people are being more careful about spending, holidays closer to home are growing in popularity. There are a variety of amazing options just outside your doorstep which we in the UK may take for granted…

When pitching concepts to networks, it helps to have a sizzle, or a sample, to show them in order that they can easily see your idea. This is one such sizzle for a potential documentary called Urban Roots. Background:: As the world population inches towards the 9-billion mark by 2050, and over 80 per cent…

In the series of three live action pieces, we introduce “Claire” and show how Xerox products and office solutions make her hectic job easier.

// the requirement // In early summer 2015, Global Fire were approached by Portsmouth City Council to produce a 30″ advert for broadcast TV. The kicker was that we had to get it signed off by Clearcast and ready for broadcast within 8 weeks and the budget was very small (which I can’t stress enough…

“The video gives a real sense of our scale and achievement. It really reflects what we as a business contribute to the built environment around us.” -Frank Hanna, Group Commercial Director, MBH PLC // the requirement // In early 2015, I was approached by MBH who are the largest British producer of hand made and machine bricks…

Barnado’s is the largest children’s charity in the UK and works to transform the lives of vulnerable children and youth. In 2014 we embarked on the creation of a 15 minute documentary film for Barnados to tell the story of their Positive Family Steps program and the people whose lives have been changed through it….

“I had a vision for an emotional film to connect those working at Vodafone with a powerful sense of purpose. I explained to Elizabeth what I wanted, and it was a real pleasure to see her become as excited as I was about it. The sheer energy she had to deliver that vision meant I…

We were engaged by the Institute for Economics and Peace to render their 115 page Global Peace Index 2016 into a 2 minute video for consumption by the general public. This means turning a lot of technical lingo into visuals which “the man on the street” can digest as useful (and most importantly) understandable data….

Agency clients are an important part of the family of brands I serve through my role as a producer at Global Fire and supporting those agencies in their efforts to wow their clients is my goal.
