HOW I CAN HELP YOU:
I help you to draw out the key elements of your story and to craft an engaging message that will resonate with your customers or clients.
I film a (relaxed) interview with you to capture your message and then film all the elements needed to help bring your message to life.
Editing is nothing short of magic! I edit all that I've captured, adding sound effects and synching to music that helps to tell your story.
ABOUT MY WORK & FILMING STYLE
I care about taking the time needed to create a film that captures the essence of what your brand is all about in a way that feels really authentic to you and helps your clients or customers to emotionally connect with what you do.
In every film, there is depth, there is a layering of visual and audible elements, and there is coherent storytelling designed to engage, impact and connect with your audience.
I don’t just turn up at your door, point the camera, shoot, and then cobble together a series of shots with music slapped over the top...
I take the time to get to know you and what your brand is all about and dig deep to discover the important elements of your story in order to craft a film that is both impactful and feels authentic to you.
If you'd like to create a film for your brand to engage, impact and connect with your clients or customers, get in touch with me and we can chat about what you have in mind and how we can work together to bring your vision to life.
I’d love to hear from you!
ABOUT RACHEL HENDRY
I completed my postgraduate degree in documentary filmmaking at the Edinburgh College of Art (2009) and have made several short documentary films, one of which won the FilmG Award for ‘Best Documentary’ in 2009.
I’ve also done a lot of freelance video work in the past for businesses, musicians and festivals and was asked to direct and edit the music video for Gaelic Folk/Rock band, Mànran, in their nationwide campaign to get a Gaelic language song into the UK charts for the first time in 40 years.
BA (HONS) MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS - UWS
MA FILM DIRECTING (DOCUMENTARY) - Edinburgh College of Art
From 2012 - 2014 I worked as the assistant director on a Creative Scotland/BBC documentary film based in a Scottish Hospice. The film was nominated for a Scottish BAFTA award.
I left film and video making behind when I moved to Norway (for love!) in 2014, but my passion for it returned with a vengeance and I launched Wild Soul Films earlier this year (2019).
