Helping businesses capture stories for the screen
Producer and animator Nico Jones, who has a background in graphics and producing videos for the internet, has a great eye for making stories come to life on screen. Anyone who’s seen his ‘Fall in Love’ video about Indie York members might be surprised to hear that he shot the sequence in a single day. It’s this agility that allows him to work on a one-on-one basis with businesses to ensure they get as much as they can out of his workshops.
During a full day workshop, Nico will set businesses up with the all-important motion graphics, go through story-telling techniques, and generally arm them with the tools needed to make their own videos affordably. It’s the recipe and techniques that all the large video companies use but on a much more engaged and personal level. With personal highlights that include working for the NHS and with fellow Indie York members, it’s clear that Nico’s enthusiasm for video is contagious.
“I’m interested in why people enjoy having their own business. I love the fact that the people who had the original idea are still in control of it, they’re really excited about it and have great stories to tell.”
