What Inspires Me? Nick Banister
Get to know a little bit about Nick, our videographer
1.What brought you to the company?
I always wanted a job in the film industry and knew it would take a bit of time and patience to find that break. It finally came when I happened to see a friend’s post on Facebook, with a link to a Videographer vacancy. I thought I would apply, and the rest is history!
2.What’s your experience/background?
I have always been interested in film. This led to me studying it at College and then University, where I was able to learn about many aspects of media production before choosing to focus on video production.
Since graduating I have been able to work with some great brands and win awards along the way.
3.What has been your highlight of the year to date?
As a big sports fan, there have been a couple of exciting shoots that I’ve been luckily enough to work on this year…
One was going to Renault F1 headquarters to film with the current drivers/team and produce a season’s worth of social content in 2 days!
The other was capturing some great content at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Countryfile Live for MINI.
4.What/who inspires you?
I’m inspired by the people around me, learning new things, new techniques, and advances in equipment and new software. I do a lot of research in my spare time to find out how others are creating content - from animation and motion graphics, to moving image and sound design. Anything that can make me a better practitioner!
5.What keeps you busy outside of work?
I like to travel, I have just come back from an amazing trip to New York which has always been a dream of mine.
I also enjoy going to music concerts and live events. I’ve recently started attending some spoken word Q&A sessions from famous faces and heroes of mine, to take inspiration from their life and careers.
I’m currently making wedding plans with my fiancée for our wedding in July 2019. Selecting a videographer is proving to be particularly time consuming!
