About Smarter Video

Converting raw footage into an entertaining film takes great skill and timing. I’m an experienced video editor and producer with over 12 years of experience working to create fine works of moving art. Besides my abilities in video editing, camera operation, directing, producing, motion graphics, scriptwriting, storyboarding etc., I use my qualifications and insight in video marketing i.e. using video content to generate results that achieve goals. I take pride in my creative flair and strategic approach to produce one-of-a-kind videos that engage the audience and become conversation pieces. I lend my expertise and eye for detail to create beautiful story arcs and maintain a tone and style that my clients prefer while still getting the message across. Plus I am very good at editing for humour or using music and edits to provoke a spectrum of emotions including joy, sadness, nostalgia, and much more. Another equally important side of my service is making certain that my clients are always at ease. Making video content can often be stressful and I like to take the time and effort to ensure my clients know how things are progressing. Before I start on any project, I do my best to get on the same wavelength as my clients to understand their vision and goals. We next discuss the schedule, timelines, budgets and what the costs are going to be upfront. I am patient, well organised, leave nothing to chance! For appealing and evocative videos that never fail to get the right results, please get in touch to discuss your goals and the brief. Hope to hear from you soon!

Laura B.'s review on Jul 17, 2020

Yesterday morning I found myself in the most desperate situation at the end of a project producing a 20 min short film when my previous editor fell ill. At 5:30am I sent a desperate plea on this site and at 7:30am David rang me. His quick thinking, ability and determination meant than over a 17 hour period he was able to finish my film ahead of today’s deadline. I can honestly say I am thrilled with the end result and although I would never want to repeat this stressful time, I’m actually so grateful it happened as David’s touch at the end of an intensive 5.5 week production period has elevated this film so much and everyone involved is thrilled with it. I could not recommend David more. I’m incredibly grateful we’ve made a connection and I very much hope to work with him again in the future.

I have worked with David for a year now and couldn’t recommend him enough. Reliable, super efficient and always adds value to the projects he works on. As a Project Manager I have always valued his strategic approach to projects.

David is a talented and professional go to for all video content. His years of experience and business acumen make him a highly valued content creator for all channels. Over the years he has been a proven and trusted supplier capable of delivering on all fronts.

Mike O.'s review on May 22, 2020

I have worked with David and Smarter Video on several projects now. It is always reassuring to work with someone who prepares fully for every job, has an easy way with clients and is an excellent communicator throughout all stages of the production. David brings an energy and enthusiasm to each task and is always full of ideas. I have relied upon his broad range of experience and technical proficiency to both follow specific briefs and to take the lead in a creative capacity. I have had no hesitation in recommending or referring Smarter Video for jobs in the past, and will be sure to do so in future.

David Cooper and I have worked together on numerous projects across the UK and Europe for various well-known brands. David takes proper ownership and responsibility for all his work, and delivers great quality content. He's efficient and organised, and offers great flexibility to respond to clients' changing needs. It is great to know that once he's been briefed, David can self-manage and run with a project from end to end. David is friendly and transparent, and can advise not only on the production itself but also on implementation strategies. An asset to any video project and the first number I call.

Greg H.'s review on May 19, 2020

I've hired David multiple times over the past 2 years. While some of them have been along side me, I've also trusted him enough to manage, shoot and edit our projects on his own. He has a problem solving attitude which is why I tend not to worry too much whenever I have him on a project. Not only that, I know the quality of his work is always top notch.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
All pricing is worked out on a project by project basis so that no client is paying more than they need to.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
It is important to me that every customer, ongoing or new gets the same treatment. Every project is looked at on its own merits. A clear brief is ascertained - not just focussed on the end product but on the purpose of it. This way, when appropriate, advice and guidance can be given to ensure the final video or campaign gets the desired results.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I am a qualified Apple instructor across all of their editing software and have worked using FCPX, Motion, Premiere, After Effects and more for over 12 years across, commercial, broadcast and social media projects.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Always hire someone that understands the reason that you are having a video made. It ensures you have someone that can bring creativity and strategic understanding to a project. This can make the difference between a video that looks good but doesn't achieve your goals and one that does.

Having studied film at college, I got more acquainted with the craft when I studied Experimental Film Production at Staffordshire University, and I graduated with a first-class degree. I am flexible to adapt to any brief and welcome projects that get me out of my comfort zone while also pushing the
