Lights, Camera, Edit

Creating a polished video is a multi-step process that involves: planning, capturing footage, importing it into your editing software, selecting the best shots, adding special effects and colour grading, and then delivering the finished product to your viewers.

Concept & Idea Generation

I will work with you to brainstorm, research and think creatively to come up with innovative and effective concepts that align with your goals.


From location scouting to casting, post-production software to special effects and everything in between, I’ll work with you to ensure that all the important elements are taken into account.

Idea Development

Research is crucial in expanding your understanding and to gather new ideas.

Screenwriting & Script-Writing

A well-written script is the foundation of a great film. It sets the scene and establishes characters and interactions. . 

Hiring Cast & Crew

With a skilled and organised team in place, I’ll be able to tackle any challenge and bring your project to life in the most efficient way possible.

Scouting Locations & Production Design

With my expertise in location scouting, set design and prop styling, I’ll help you create a visually stunning film that stays within budget. 

Storyboards & Shot Lists

Scouting locations and nailing down production design are crucial as it sets the tone for the entire film and helps the crew understand the expectations.

Production Schedules

A production schedule is the blueprint for your project as it helps keep everything on track and running smoothly. 


By creating a shooting schedule, I can ensure that every shot is captured efficiently and effectively.


Every shot should be well thought out and serve a purpose in moving the story forward. 

Sound Design

The right sound will set the mood, create tension and guide your audience through the story. I have the experience to elevate your production and make it seamless.

Colour Correction

This technique will add depth and emotion to your scenes, making the video experience immersive. 

Visual Effects

From creating landscapes to adding in that one impossible shot, VFX is a skill I utilise to captivate audiences.

Sound Mixing

Experienced engineers will balance the levels, adjust the panning, and add effects to make sure each element in your recording is heard and contributes to the overall sound.

Colour Grading

Colour grading is like putting the final touches on a painting. It’s all about enhancing the colours and setting the correct tone.


Whether it’s through traditional channels, online platforms, or taking the reins and self-distributing, there are plenty of options to get your film in front of the right people.


I’ll work with you to craft a trailer that showcases the best of your film and I’ll use social media and other platforms to share teasers and clips that will get audiences excited.

The Rise of Video

86% of businesses use video as a marketing tool, holding steady from last year. This is the high point in a general story of video usage growing which can be traced back to 2016 (the first time we asked this particular question in this way). Also, 92% of marketers who use video say that it’s an important part of their marketing strategy.


Perhaps most strikingly, 87% of video marketers reported that video gives them a positive ROI — a world away from the lowly 33% who felt that way in 2015. This could well be attributed to greater understanding of how to use video, as well as how to track and quantify its impact.


Most marketers feel that video is a brilliant investment for lead generation. 86% of video marketers say video has been effective for generating leads, up another 2% from 2021 and up 5% since 2019. 81% of marketers feel that video has a direct, positive impact on sales.

The Three Stages of Video Production

As a freelance video producer, I know the important three main stages: pre-production, production and post-production. During pre-production, I will lay the groundwork for a successful shoot, conceptualising ideas and scouting locations and actors.


Production is where I’ll bring your concept to life, setting up cameras, lighting and capturing all the footage we need. Finally, in post-production, I will edit the footage, add music and effects to turn the raw footage into a polished final product that you’ll be proud to share with the world.
