I am passionate about visual storytelling and love helping people rediscover joy in what they do through the process of filmmaking. As a self-shooting producer/director with a background in communications and the performing arts, I am able to fully understand what my clients want and then effectively help them achieve their goals in exciting and dynamic ways.

By increasing brand recognition, raising revenue or helping secure future funding streams, I have been able to support clients and enable them to energetically and imaginatively connect with their target audience. 

I really love the work I do, which takes me into into the lives of a wide range of people and organisations, putting me in the privileged position of being able to listen to and then tell their stories powerfully.

We commissioned a film package from Telling Video and we got first class service from the team. They are responsive to emails, willing to adapt and re-edit sections to suit your needs and the finished product looked absolutely brilliant and has been shared hundreds of times online. Don't hesitate - choose Telling Video!

​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.
