Rick Bailey

Co-Founder, Filmmaker

Having worked as a Freelance Camera Operator since 2008, I’ve had the opportunity to work on some incredible projects across Commercial, TV, Film and Corporate sectors. Highlights have included filming the Good Food & Wine Show in South Africa, New Zealand, Astralia and South America and working with many high-end clients such as McDonalds, RBS and Google.

My drive and passion for filmmaking keeps me striving for perfection on every shoot, which is reflected in the fact that we have long-standing relationships with many of our clients.

When I’m not behind the camera you’ll find me tearing down hill on my mountain bike or immersed in the F1, eating Japanese food and listening to punk rock.

Co-Founder, Filmmaker

What I love about filmmaking is meeting new people, finding out what makes them tick and telling their story; we’re fortunate to be able to combine our passions for cinematography, music, travel, culture and geeky-camera-tech into our business.

Originally from Leeds, I graduated from Sheffield Hallam’s Film & Media Production Degree in 2008 and then worked as a broadcast journalist and video producer in the corporate sector, where I honed my skill for editing promo films. I setup as a freelance Camera Operator and Editor in 2011, before moving to Manchester soon after.

I’ve travelled all over the world for work and pleasure; there’s nothing more exciting than exploring new places and riding massive roller coasters.
