From Daleks and Drama Queens… to Digital Advertising and VideoSeen
My passion for the moving image began at a very young age and continues to this day in my video marketing and advertising business, VideoSeen.
During a 25-year career in the British film and television industry I’ve been fortunate enough to direct some of the most high-profile British shows of recent years, working with high-calibre actors, Academy Award nominees and BAFTA award-winners.
My diverse body of work encompasses popular drama, comedy, commercials and documentaries for clients such as the BBC, ITV, Channel Four and Showtime. I’ve been lucky enough to pick up a few awards along the way, including two Royal Television Society Commendations. In the world of advertising I have directed commercials for DDB & Co, McCann Erickson, BMP/DDB, JWT and DFWG. Clients include DIY retail giant B&Q.

Today spend more time on Facebook and YouTube than I do on Netflix, and I help business owners, entrepreneurs, marketers, speakers and coaches to grow their businesses with Facebook Video Advertising. I'm also a dab hand with all things YouTube. Watch what Estate Agent Marketing legend Sam Ashdown has to say...
