What Our Clients Say

  • I contacted James to see if he could help add a different dimension to my business and help develop a series of films for promoting my business and for educational resources.

    James listened and guided from our very first meeting and helped me develop my own ideas how to use the initial work as a platform for the new digital asset. I was impressed that James could approach the project from both creative and business angles.

    Simon Ferris, CEO,  Flat Stan First Aid
  • 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.

    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.

    Paul Kenny, CEO, Oceans Learning
  • The aim of the video was to give a short insight into the work, planning and ingredients of the inflight meals on SAS long haul flights.

    The end results were very successful. We find James extremely professional and it has been a pleasure working together with James. We would happily recommend James.

    Peter Lawrance, SAS Head Chef
  • 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.
