This is just a final Christmas message and thank you to all my fantastic clients who have made my first year back behind camera so amazing. If I had a crystal ball back in February when I launched Video Artisan – and could see where I am today – I’d be astonished at how well I’ve done.
I’m particularly grateful to Supadance for being my first corporate video customer (and having commissioned me to produce 4 more films since). Another person to show faith in me was my good friend Paul Jaffe at Eiger Safety whose rope access film (nay Epic) is still in production. He just keeps on winning new and exciting projects which just simply have to be filmed – but we really are going to push towards completing this in the New Year (aren’t we Paul? : ))
There’s been many more clients since then – some of which you’ll be hearing about in the New Year.
Needless to say that winning the Open Category at the IOV Awards was a very special achievement for me this year and gave me the kind of boost that’s hard to quantify. Getting a 2nd place in the Documentary Category was just icing on the cake.
Like I said, an amazing year that has completely blown away my expectations. And if the bookings and enquiries for early 2013 are anything to go by then this is just the start of something really special.
Last but not least – and maaaaaaaaaaaassive thanks to my wife, Tiff, for never doubting that I was doing the right thing. You are always right dear! ; )
So have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year everyone. I’m off to crack open the sherry!
