Where are you from and how did you get into this business?
I'm Lancashire born and bred however, including my university days and subsequent career afterwards, have lived in many different towns and cities around the country before returning back to my home county. Films have always been my passion, including writing a screenplay - unpublished sadly, and I decided to turn my passion of watching and making my own videos into a business with the formation of Siteflight.
Describe a typical day at work?
We cannot describe a typical day because there isn't one! And that's the best thing. One day could be spent recording footage in a warehouse or a product at home or out on top of a hill and at other times we could be editing at the computer for days at a time. Who wants a typical day any more?
From where do you draw your enthusiasm and inspiration for the job? Our enthusiasm comes from doing what we love. It is said that if you do what you love you will never work a day in your life and we find that to be very true. In a previous life we had to drive many miles and hours to different locations. for years on end, to be on site for eight o'clock every day, often earlier, dealing with problems, having heated discussions with many different parties and trawling through a never ending barrage of emails. It's not hard to be inspired having experienced this.
How can a customer ensure that they receive the best possible service from you? A client can ensure that they receive the best possible service from us as it's all or nothing for us. Just like many businesses, we're only as good as our last job but we set out on every project to produce a video that is as good or better than the previous one.
What has been your most memorable experience on the job?Our most memorable experience on the job? We think that meeting some really nice and interesting people in addition to visiting some really interesting locations, that you don't usually visit, is pretty cool and memorable.
