Some real-world examples...

I was first approached by Ministry of Motion, a digital and animation production company, at the start of 2023. They wanted to start offering video production to their clients, but didn't have the resources or the skills in-house to do so. 

As an experienced Video Producer and Director, I have a great understanding of the entire production process and what is required to turn an enquiry into a brief and to deliver it back. After some initial conversations, we aligned on their targets and goals, set out an agreement and got to work. 

I offered some consultancy in the early stages - laying out potentia
l costs for different size projects, advising on how they could reach out to clients and setting up a framework for when projects went ahead. 
I was able to support when enquiries came in, subsequently writing pitches and turning the enquiry into a brief, before providing a total project cost for me to deliver the content back to their client. 

Once a project would go live, I'd be introduced as the project lead and would communicate to the client via a private company email that had been set up, so all correspondence was transparent for all parties. I am great at client communications and leading a project, but I can also take a step back and not being involved in client communications, should you wish.
Whether it be a solo videographer project, or a larger-scale piece of content with a multi-person crew, I would handle all preparations, logistics, costings, filming and production of the project.

I am also a skilled editor, working out of my own post-production suite, meaning I edit most of the projects I work on myself. This is useful as it gives me greater control of the final outcome as the Director, but also it keeps costs down as I do not have to outsource the editing work. This is handy in the case of Ministry of Motion, as I often collaborate with their animation artists to create hybrid animated/live-action work.

Once a draft is ready to be presented to the client after going through vigorous reviews by myself and Ministry of Motion, we'll take onboard any feedback presented back before delivering the content to a happy client. We've completed video projects together for Lloyds Pharmacy, OVH Cloud and Pen Underwriting.

Slate and Mortar are a video production company based in Birmingham. I have been working with them since 2021, supporting on a number of productions as a Director of Photography and as a Producer and Director.

I work with Slate and Mortar Slate and Mortar on a regular basis to support on various projects and productions that they produce. Most often as a Director of Photography, I'll take the lead on crafting the visuals and technical camera work on shoots for clients such as University of Liverpool, Leicester City FC and more. I also work as a Producer/Director, leading a project from start to finish, ensuring their clients are delivered high-quality video content. 

Depending on the project - they will either ask me to pitch a creative treatment and associated costs to complete the project, or I will work to an already defined treatment and budget and will deliver the project to that specification. 

I'll lead the project through the pre-production stages, discussing and outlining the core of the project with the client, keeping the Executive Producers looped in as to whats happening. Acting on this, I'll then fix up the necessary components to get the project ready to head into filming.

I often work with crews and creatives on these projects, such as camera operators, lighting gaffers, sound recordists, voiceover artists and production assistants. These are all arranged and provided through my network of filmmaking creatives around the UK (and beyond!). 
I own an array of high-end, industry standard cine equipment - including cameras, lenses, gimbals, lighting, autocues and more, meaning I can provide an excellent base set of equipment that will service most low-mid budget productions. 

Being a proficient editor, I am able to edit these projects in-house, which leads to a quicker turn around time, greater control over the end product, and its also a little cheaper. However, for higher-end projects, I have great contacts in the post-production, editing and motion graphics/animation world.

Bridgedale make great quality socks for the outdoor market. We visited their factory in Ireland for 3 days to create a brand film and other bits of content. All produced, directed, edited and delivered by Jake Kindred Film!

Bridgedale approached me looking to create a brand film, amongst other video assets, primarily for their website, social media platforms and general outwards communications. After some initial conversations and ironing out the brief and deliverables, we put together the logistics to head over to Ireland for the 3 days films.


We decided to travel 

by ferry

It meant we could travel in the van with all kit!

We spent a bit of time exploring their factory and getting a feel for the space and where we wanted to shoot each element of the film. Going in with a game-plan formed ahead of time meant we were efficient with how we went about the filming. 

We came as a 2-person crew, myself Directing with a Camera Operator from my network of filmmakers and creatives. With a project of this size, we wanted to make sure we had enough hands-on-deck. We would also be taking some product photos during our time with them.

Bridgedale wanted to capture a number of pieces of content, including a brand film, social media clips, retail training videos and product videos. We perfected the schedule to allow to us to work through multiple different setups during the time we had in the factory.

Taking the footage back to the edit room after the trip, I got hard to work crafting the videos and getting the files ready for delivery.

I am a highly-skilled editor, proficient in a range of different softwares including Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Da Vinci Resolve and more. This means I can complete all the necessary editing tasks myself, such as motion graphics, colouring grading, sound design and more. This came in really handy for this project, as Bridgedale wanted a speedy turnaround and a good volume of deliverables.

I was able to work to their existing brand guidelines and styles, making the videos feel even more integrated into the brands visual look, which is very important when it comes to deploying videos to social media and other platforms. We even made sure we delivered a subtitled and non-subtitled version of each video.

After going through a couple of drafts and revision stages, we finally locked down all the videos and signed-off on a successful and exciting project!

Todd Festival is a fantastic, fun-filled and family-friendly music festival based down south on the outskirts of London. I support the festival with content production during the 3-day event, including same-day video edits, as well as multiple promo deliverables throughout the year!

Boasting 80+ artists across 6 stages over 3 days, Todd in the Hole Festival is a barrel of fun lead by a great team, and I really enjoy heading down to the festival for the 4 days to support the management team in creating exciting and engaging content for their digital platforms. 

During the festival I deliver regular, daily promotional videos to highlight and recap the days events. This means mobile editing and fast turnarounds, luckily I have a fully fitted out and self-powered video production and mobile editing van, which we utilise throughout the festival to produce same-day video content.

Working mostly independently over the event, it's important that we have good discussions beforehand about what the team want to get out of the video content this year, and chiefly how they plan on using it across their marketing strategies for the next upcoming year. New trends in social media can dictate how we go about capturing and producing the content, and we like to make sure we are showcasing the festival in the best way we possibly can. I make sure we capture the video content in a variety of different formats, including both horizontal 16:9 and vertical 9:16, so the videos can be used much more widely on social media for more engaging impact. 

Once I have a game plan in hand, it's time to get the steps in walking around the massive festival site to visit all the different stages, activities, facilities and moments that happen throughout the 3 days. The key is to have a good schedule of the artists we want to make sure we capture, as well as being agile to capture those spontaneous and candid moments that occur. 

Once the festival has ended, I will store a library of the years festival, ready to be utilised and used in the upcoming year in the build up to the next festival. I create materials such as promotional videos, social media ads, digital marketing screen ads and much more - meaning the festival gets the most value and use out of the content that they can.

Tinker Taylor are a video production company that I regularly work with and support on their various projects

Tinker Taylor are one of the first video production companies that I started working with in my early freelance career. They produce engaging video content for various sectors including health and medical, the Police, business and finance, products and more. 

I mainly support them as a Director of Photography, stepping in on different projects to offer a creative flair and technical mindset, as well as to advise on best practices and processes on how to turn their client enquiry of brief into a final result. This could be in supporting with the storyboarding and shot listing stages, or advising on technical on-set strategies such as lighting options, camera and lens, props amongst more. 

I often lead on technical areas and charge the camera and lighting work on filming days - working both independently and with an extended crew, for a range of clients including West Midlands Police, NHS, NTT Data and many more. 

I really enjoy working closely with production companies, allowing for a great relationship to be established and for clearer and more efficient processes to be set out when entering different projects. I find it really useful to learn how a particular company enjoys working, and vice versa, and to come together to produce a great end result.
