About Filmmaker and Web Video producer Alan Fentiman - Filming, Editing, Production

About Me...

I am a filmmaker based in Alnwick, Northumberland. I have over ten years experience working with clients including The BBC, Channel 4, The Tate Modern, Converse and Condé Naste.

In recent years I have specialised in documenting arts projects in the North-East, working with organisations including The Baltic, The Sage, Durham Brass Festival, Berwick Visual Arts, The Great Exhibition of The North, GIFT & The Bowes Museum.

My documentaries have covered the development of large-scale festival commissions, public art installations, artist exhibitions, writers, poets, composers, makers, festivals, theatre projects and galleries. I also produce music videos and write and produce my own films.

I recently finished a documentary about young people and a short film commission for Channel 4 broadcast in early 2014.

I film, edit and produce everything myself using 4 Panasonic GH4Rs and an iPhone. I edit on a laptop using Adobe Premiere CC and After Effects. I also run a digital record label called WIDE Records and compose some of the soundtracks for my films using Ableton Live Suite.
