Oak Furnitureland – A Day in the Life of a Sales Consultant

‘A Day in the Life of a Sales Consultant’ is the first in a series of 8 recruitment style videos I created for furniture giant Oak Furnitureland, during my time as a Director / Editor at Cardiff based video production agency Wordley Creative.

Armed with 2 Canon C300s, I had a lot fun directing over the course of a full day in an enormous Swindon store. It’s always fun working with real staff members, and it’s equally fun working in a smaller creative team where you have to shoot pragmatically, in a somewhat guerrilla style manner, because the store is open as usual.

It’s shoots like these I have the most fun editing too – you’re usually able to find the best and loveliest shots (that always seem to make the final edit) within the outtakes.

First Time ‘Freeprinters’

Directed by Alex McPake at Wordley Creative.

Working with FreePrints on this short form social media campaign was a really enjoyable experience. This ended up being a really wholesome shoot – interviewing a series of people taking immense joy in revisiting some of the photos that capture their most favourite memories.

Computershare working with Cordant People

Working with national recruitment organisation Cordant People and their client Computershare, I self shot, produced & edited this corporate / documentary style piece to be used as a means of online advertising, directly attracting new candidates to the business.

Alongside creating this project, I also oversaw the digital marketing campaign that was built around this piece of video content.
