About Not By Hook

I am a freelance filmmaker and editor with 10 years’ experience in the advertising industry. Having worked at one of the world’s most creative advertising agencies I have developed many transferable skills. Through my eight year’s spent at Fallon, as well as running my own business, I also have experience in project management, account management, and running social media campaigns. I have years of experience in pitching and dealing with senior members of company’s. I can handle tight deadlines as a team of on my own, Over the last ten years and through running Not by Hook, I have developed strong marketing & PR skills by running email Campaigns, managing social media accounts, website content, marketing and design with a lot of self- promotion. I am now looking for a role where I can utilize my skills and develop them further. Through my ambitious, determined and hard working nature I have worked my way up to a senior level, making films for some wonderful clients such as The FA, All Saints Retail Ltd and Rudimental. Other work includes corporate promotional videos as well as online educational prospectuses. I also work directly with advertising agencies like Wieden & Kennedy, where I have worked on campaigns for clients such as Honda, Nike, Three, Tesco, Finsh, and more. I have an amazing talent to tell stories and I love to do this through making films. I thrive to make each second worth watching. I have a great technical knowledge and understanding in a broad range of computer programs including Premiere Pro and other Adobe Creative Cloud apps. As well as the more every day programs like Word and Office. Aside from my creative and technical skills to shoot and edit films I have excellent organisational skills and can work to tight deadlines in high-pressured environments, demonstrated by my experience of managing Fallon Films. Another of my strengths lies in my ability to communicate with others, whether liaising with clients, creative or members of my team. I am also dyslexic and that give me a very different way of thinking and solving problems; I am an outside of the box thinker and this has proven to save the day a number of times. Being a self-motivated and out-going individual, I bring positivity and dedication to any project. I am ready to take on a new challenge and think I would be a great asset to your team. I have many transferable skills, to find out more please get in touch. While looking for my next permanent role I am happy with temporary work in any field that could suit me.

Event Videography
Jamie B.'s review on Apr 12, 2016

Excellent service - Neil was really attentive to what we wanted and delivered a series of excellent videos for us as part of a global advocacy campaign. These have helped us to reach new audiences and promote the campaign to donors around the world, and we would not hesitate to use Not By Hook again in the future.


Commercial Videography
Caroline B.'s review on Apr 04, 2016

Neil has now completed three projects for us at Queensmill School and has been fantastic to work with throughout each of these. The first project involved producing a short clip for use in an awards ceremony showcasing how we spend pupil premium funding. The second two films take pride of place on the homepage of our school website and provide a wonderful demonstration of our school and satellite units, showing wonderful examples of the students and staff involved in different activities. These are used to raise awareness of the work of our school amongst parents and professionals. As specified in the brief given at the start of the project, Neil has filmed and edited the footage beautifully in order to present an overview of our good practice and ethos of Queensmill. He listened carefully to exactly what we wanted throughout, offered helpful suggestions and was extremely flexible and accepting of the students' difficulties and idiosyncracies during filming. Neil's enthusiasm and warm, approachable nature helped to ensure that everyone on camera felt relaxed and we could get the best footage possible. Neil ensured that the editing process was very straightforward from our perspective and provided regular communication and examples for us to review. We are extremely happy with the final products. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Neil and we wouldn't hesitate to commission Not By Hook for any future projects.

Neil is a pleasure to work with - a brilliant editor and film maker who shows great initiative and creativity throughout projects, and always looks to deliver the extra mile. His professionalism and attention to detail are second to none. It also never hurts that he's a really top bloke!

Neil helped me to both shoot and edit an art piece for my Masters final piece at Goldsmiths university. Thanks to him, I achieved a Distinction for this module. I can not praise Neil enough for his profession attitude, skill and willingness to go the extra mile to achieve the results you want.

David H.'s review on Mar 26, 2016

Neil is a hard working, conscientious video editor, his calm approach to tasks make him a worthy asset. He is someone who thinks out of the box and manages to come up with ideas that others wouldn't perhaps think of. He is definitely a people person and manages to get the best from people from all walks of life. His editing is top notch, he works in a methodical way and is very organised, I have also seen a couple of projects he has filmed and he demonstrates good production values. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone.
