Varujan Smallwood - Filmmaker
Finding the real you.
Your story is personal and unique. It's actually a gift from you to the world.
My name is Var and I love helping people discover how amazing they are by telling their story really well. As a seasoned video producer, with a lifetime’s experience in both theatre and community development, my passion is to transform your story into a dynamic and compelling piece of visual art.
It all begins with careful listening. Firstly, to who you are and secondly, to what your audience is like. Then, as the creative process unfolds, you will not only connect more powerfully with your audience, you'll get more excited about who you are. This is video production with a difference.
The difference is personal, the difference is
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Actor, writer, producer
I love working with Var - he listens to what you want, then brings his creative approach and technical expertise to achieve great results
We have had a fantastic week being taught filmcraft by Var. His passion is infectious and our confidence as filmmakers is far beyond what we could have expected within a week. Thank you!
Producer for Tom Marshman,
Telling Video (Varujan and Emma) are a pleasure to work with and immediately gave their all to the project to make sure it reflected our aims. We appreciate the amount of time, effort, and attention to detail they put in to the work, and gave us some fantastic footage to show for it. Thank you!
Up Our Street
Telling Video's film of our Thank You Awards was partly responsible us for being successful in being awarded a national lottery grant, our biggest yet!
I would highly recommend Telling Video to any organisation. Var understands how to use video to tell a story, and quickly put everyone at ease during interviews in order to generate good content from everyone involved. We would be happy to use him again as the need arises
Telling Video are bright, dynamic, story tellers - we are simply chuffed to bits with their work. Var has an eye for detail and in each of our projects has brought genuine passion - he is an ideal choice as producer and creative director.
