Location Location Location: Freelance Filmmaker now based in Manchester

Monday, 18 July 2016

Just a quick update on a few things that have been happening over the last month or so.

I’ve moved house, leaving my home town of Barnsley to setup home in Ramsbottom (near Bury) with my fabulous girlfriend.

Previously working from home, this arrangement was no longer an option in our new home, so I decided to rent some office space to accommodate my work requirements. Im now based in Arrow Mill, a grade II listed building in Rochdale.

So what does this move mean for business? I will continue to work with all my existing video production clients. Why wouldn’t I? They’re a great bunch and its not easy to find the working relationships that we have nurtured and developed over the years. What the move will mean though is that Manchester, and all the surrounding areas are a lot more accessible for me now.

I’m really excited about the prospect of forging new working relationships in the Manchester area. Meeting new people and working with talented teams and individuals is one of the many reasons I love this job, and I cant wait to get out there and start providing the high quality video production services that my existing clients have come accustomed to.

Another positive of this move is I now have access to a dedicated super fast internet connection. And whilst my previous connection was fast enough ( I thought ), the dedicated high speed internet here at Arrow Mill is amazing. Vimeo uploads are completing before I have chance to walk away from the computer, let alone make myself a brew as I did before.

Leaving the house and ‘going to work’ is still a novelty at the moment. And whilst I am no longer able to complete video edits in my pyjamas I am already seeing a increase in my productivity on a day to day basis.

If you’re in the Manchester area then please feel free to drop in for a chat and a brew. I love talking video and discussing how the services I provide can complement any video production project.  I promise that I will not be wearing pyjamas, but the tea will be from Yorkshire (Coffee is also available) and we have a vending machine with a great selection of chocolate.
