Short Video

Specializing in short and straightforward videos for small businesses and charities, I focus on creating content with clear visuals and concise messages. Contact me to discuss your project and see if we’re a good fit.

Would you like a video that is a reasonable budget, not overcomplicated and simple to produce but which highlights your message beautifully?  There are endless possibilities for using video to guide customers or supporters through your sales journey. 

Short video does not need to be complicated or expensive.

Video Portfolio

TogetherCo is ‘a loneliness charity that creates connections to change lives’. Wow, that has never been more important has it?!  These are two of the videos we produced to help the charity share the stories of some of the people that have really benefited from their services.  We met some totally brilliant people doing these.

Richard directs an incredible service in the Medway region.  As you can imagine, time away from work to film is very much at a premium and he needed something simple to illustrate their approach on the Everycare website.

This could potentially have been a highly complex video.  I was asked to tell the story of the benefits to this amazing initiative called My Clinical Outcomes.  You can see that the simple approach really works, and it also meant that logistically, I could film this quickly to ensure as little disruption as possible.

Jo from Build14Me wanted a short video of one of their clients Andy, of Three Pillars of Fitness, talking about how they have worked together over the years.  I filmed this in a covid-safe environment, and Andy was a natural in front of the camera too – unusual as it’s not easy for most of us!  

Adrian Swinscoe needed short videos of all 13 of his training sessions on Skillshare called How to Wow – above is the intro.  It has proved a really popular course, and is an essential for anyone wanting a fresh, practical and very punchy perspective on customer relationships.


I worked with Sussex Cancer Fund to produce this introductory video to promote their services and help them to fundraise.  There were many sensitivities to filming of course, and I wanted the video to feel positive too because they do such amazing work.  

Churchill Square shopping centre sponsored Pride in 2019 and wanted a short video to promote some of the wonderful retailers that participated.  It was a lot of fun to shoot this, helped by the retailers all being brilliant at taking part.

Peter Standley is an incredible stonemason based in Nottinghamshire practising traditional artisan methods in stone carving, clay modelling and casting.  Here is a sneak peak inside his Artisan Stone studio.

Worthing & Adur Council needed me to film their new fleet of bin lorries for use on their You Tube account.  It was a day of nasty weather, but the music they chose still makes me laugh and really lifts the topic.
