Filmmaker Simon Waller leads our video team, delivering branded content, documentary films, short-form high-quality films and photography.
Simon has more than 15 years’ experience of the creative and design world, shooting and directing projects across the world. He has picked up a few awards on the way. Of particular note is ‘The Bliss of Ignorance’: a documentary he made in 2015 about the coal industry and air pollution in South Africa. Another of his films, ‘Life on the Streets’, a documentary short about homelessness, was screened at a fringe event at the Sundance Film Festival in 2016.
Over the years Simon has met and filmed an amazing collection of people (an aspect of his job that he loves), including homeless men and women and those who help them back into society, adults and children around the globe who suffer from rare blood disorders, owners of multi-national brands, corporate board executives, and headline festival acts performing live on stage in front of tens of thousands of screaming fans.
Simon was introduced to the principles of photography and stop-frame animation by his mother, an art teacher, when he was a youngster. Decades later Simon is still in love with photography – an art form that captures light and pauses time.
He is a member of the Association of Photographers (AOP) and has been exhibited in both collaborative and solo shows in London. He’s even made it onto the long-list of the highly prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year award.
Spending time with his lovely young family.
