CHRIS ELLIOTT

I've been working in commercial film and video production for over 10 years and as freelance camera operator and editor since 2011.  In that time I've worked on a wide range of productions from multi-camera broadcasts to independent films, insightful documentaries, high-end promotional films and branded content.

 

In 2016 I setup Sound & Colour Films with fellow filmmaker Rick Bailey. We're a boutique production company that produces beautifully crafted films for marketing brands and businesses.

 

I love human interest stories and making content that captures an audience's imagination, that's why I love shooting documentary style films; at the end of the process I always feel like I've learned something new.

 

My passion is my craft and I'm very lucky I get to do what I love for a living. I approach each shoot with the same meticulous attention to detail that helps me deliver great work.

SERVICES

Whether you're looking for a skilled camera operator to fit into your existing crew, you need a full crew providing for a shoot or you need help developing a video concept right through to production and delivery, I've got the experience to bring your ideas to fruition.

 

Through my production company Sound & Colour Films we provide full-service video production to clients and agencies; specialising in beautifully crafted promotional films, branded content and documentaries.

I also work freelance as a Lighting Cameraman & Video Editor for some of the country's best production companies and broadcasters. I'm a confident director and self-shooter, which allows me to get the best from contributors. My experience as an editor means I'm always shooting with the finished film in mind.
