Alan has helped us demonstrate the projects to audiences who don’t work in the sector, who could not get access to the projects and has helped us demonstrate real value and worth to funders and supporters.
He has done this by ensuring that we have a clear idea of who the film is for and what we wish to achieve by making it. He worked with the HSI teams to ensure that the brief met the criteria and worked closely with us, keeping us informed at each step.
Whilst filming, he puts people at ease and managed to get some of our most uncommunicative students to open up and engage with the process whilst maintaining stunning imagery of the heritage subjects. He balanced the overall subject matter of heritage skills with the people interest, capturing the creative process along with the stories of student’s development to create a narrative that is endearing and gets straight to the point.
Alan has worked to ridiculously short deadlines, been patient when we wanted all the film clips to be squeezed in and edited the film in such a way to get the most out of the process. He is fantastic at observing the projects and really getting to grips extremely quickly about what it is we are doing and how to tell the progression of the story. This is all done with great humour, fabulous communication, flexibility, patience and professionalism.
I have no hesitation in recommending Alan wholeheartedly.
