Like many video production companies and videographers, the first step I’ll take is to determine exactly your video needs.
What are you hoping to achieve through video and what would you like to communicate?
Who is your target audience and what KPIs will you measure to determine the success of your video?
Is your video intended for a local Helsinki audience or do you wish to reach as many people as possible?
I can work with your business to develop a comprehensive visual media marketing strategy – this will ensure that you get the most from the media we create.
Together we’ll develop the creative vision and take turn the initial consultation into a formal proposal and contract which encompasses your budget, delivery date and expectations.
Are you already working with content producers or do you have an in-house team with proficiency in video or photography but you don’t know how to put down that power into an actionable plan?
I offer consultancy as a separate service to help clients get the most from their creative projects.
I’ll aid you in the development of a content strategy with notes on what media your business would benefit from and the potential impact of each project.
I work with clients to create a full-proof plan for production, distribution, and measurement.
Following the consultation, I’ll begin working on the elements required to produce your video.
Videography projects with one shooter will only require minimal paperwork, whilst projects for large productions may require paperwork to communicate greater information across fields. Scripts, storyboards, breakdowns, call sheets, budget sheets & more may be required.
I mainly work as a solo videographer (a “one-man-band”). Depending on the nature of the project, I may call for the assistance of my close and trusted group of collaborators.
Producing films this way means I can pass on savings to my clients as photography and videography can be expensive, often involving a lot of people, expensive equipment and time.
With no overhead staff costs and no expensive premises to upkeep – using a tight-knit group of freelance creatives has allowed me to keep pricing competitive, even on large productions.
Equipment will differ on a job by job basis but included in the base pricing is the hire and insurance of my core kit consisting of up-to-date cameras and sound equipment with the ability to record in 4K.
Productions can range in size from:
Events/Documentary Crew | 1 – 5 People
Advertising/Music Video Crew | 1 – 5+ People
Specialist Crew | Jib, gimbal, drone operators etc. Determined by the production requirements.
The post-production process is twofold:
After an initial round of edits (completed to the brief drafted at the start) clients will view the initial edit and provide up to two rounds of feedback to make editing changes.
I have a retainer with trusted specialists if extensive animation work is required.
If clients would prefer to have a face-to-face meeting to go over changes then this may be arranged. I can also edit remotely if you would rather oversee the process.
As a self-employed videographer, it’s important for me to build and keep healthy client relationships so I try to be as inclusive in my accommodation of any worries you may have.
Regarding delivery of the finished product:
I’ll deliver the video in the formats you require via online transfer, hard drive or flash drive. Depending on the distribution channels, the edit can be adjusted to a variety of aspect ratios.
Raw data can be purchased for an additional charge.
The delivery of your film will follow the plan discussed at the start – I will then advise and assist in the distribution and marketing of your content, if required.
If you require further edits in the future, I keep data for up to 1 year and offer a discounted editing service for returning clients.
If you’ve got an in-house creative team and wish to begin implementing video into your business then I could help you realise your goal. I’ve devised full content marketing strategies for several successful brands – from inception to implementation and execution. With a metrics-driven strategy, your business could see a new market opening up off the back of quality content.

Event videography and photography is where my career in media production started and I always strive to produce immersive content to bring your event to people through video. Any event is marketable with carefully crafted media – whether you’d like an uncut recording of the whole thing or a highly-curated clip.
I’ve produced music videos and live performance videos for a multitude of artists, both signed and unsigned. Having filmed live sessions with top-tier acts such as Milky Chance and having extensive experience creating immersive gig videos in all sizes of venue – I can help catapult your art into the visual medium and bring the audience closer to your performance.
Stories are woven into the fabric of the human condition. They can teach, inspire and connect people from all walks of life. If you have a story you would love to share, I can help you tell it.
If you’ve got a company selling goods or services, it’s the perfect time to get online. Selling online brings convenience to customers at the expense of the customer experience. Conquer this by showcasing your products and services with video and photography. I’ve produced over 500 product e-commerce videos as part of a successful content strategy for one website which seen sales exceeding £500,000 p/month.
