We find James extremely professional and it has been a pleasure working together with James. We would happily recommend James.

"James is a versatile and talented professional with a tremendous work ethic. I had the pleasure of working with him on a high profile employer brand video, with an extremely tight schedule. He was dedicated and flexible, frequently going the extra mile to get the job done. And the result? An engaging and upbeat professional video that will serve the client extremely well. Thank you James, you're a star."

Dawn Hollingworth, Director - Brand Strategy & Creative Services at Cielo Talent

"I hired James to video a company training day for a client. The event was for over 60 people who were working in teams as part of an innovation challenge. The brief we gave James was to capture the key lessons from the the event (including delegate presentations) and then create a short film to summarise the content and tone of the event. The brief was not without it's challenges, the group activities meant that teams were constantly on the move and conversations were loud and intense. James also had to work closely with our team of facilitators to ensure that he captured relevant and useful footage. We ran the event 10 times across 4 cities in the UK an Europe. James made a great effort to understand the client company, the brief and the needs of our team. He was consistently reliable and produced some really great films for us. I would not hesitate to recommend him and his company Rainbow Trout Films to other event organisers."

Paul Kenny, CEO, Oceans Learning

"James has worked on two developer events for us. One in London and another in Tel Aviv. At both he filmed the talks the main parts of the event. He was able to capture the spirit of the event and showcased the energy of the attendees. His finished video product was of the highest standard, and was fun and creative. I would highly recommend James for filming and editing at events."
