Our Approach

Who are we

Olly_profile

Oliver Burton
Producer

Oliver is our London-born producer who works closely with clients from the tech industry, the third sector, cultural organisations, educational institutions and marketing. He completed his degree in Music with a documentary about endangered Senegalese folk music and his first producer role was in 2015 for an HIV-communication drama in Malawi. 

Oliver always has an eye for the story, his ability to engage and connect with people is matched only by his passion for music.

In 2018, Oliver set off on an unassisted bicycle ride along the silk road, 16,000 km from London to New Delhi. During this time, he stayed with local people spanning 23 countries and recorded and filmed folk musicians ranging from Georgian polyphony choirs to Uzbeki throat singers.

When not developing your project, you can find him running in Hyde Park or reading biographies about people who live in remote isolation.

Alex Blogg
Director

Both an experienced camera operator and editor, Alex is capable of developing narratives with a strong style and vision resulting in content that is both compelling and cinematic. He received his grounding at Bradford University where he studied Digital Media and has gone on to develop his authentic style by shooting documentaries in three continents. 

As a director, Alex likes to find beauty in everyday moments and his emphasis is about enabling the people featured in our films to feel relaxed. 

Alex used to live in Hanoi, Vietnam with his wife, where he would ride around on his motorbike and film local indigenous musicians.

His favourite Vietnamese dish is Bún chả, grilled pork with rice noodles (before he became vegan) and he aims to put his motorcycle skills to use now he’s back home in Bristol.
