  1. Favourite Film? always changes.. I don’t watch films much surprisingly.. but I like comedies and re-watched this one recently with all my mates, so probably ‘inbetweeners 1’ at the mo
  2. What’s your favourite type of project to work on? Projects that contain the need to use After Effects, so animations, and VFX work.
  3. What was Princess Leia’s last name?  Genuinely have no idea without googling!
  4. What’s the future for video marketing?  With TV undoubtedly getting less and less popular and viewers, I think video marketing is only going to be something that is pushed more and more into all companies, and will make more and more people get in to making video content.
  5. Who would win in an Ark Media Popcorn battle?   I’ve got that precision, I’d easily win 😉

  • What’s the Future of video marketing? I think we will see the quality of video content improve and the creative use of video improve.  I’m excited about the launch of Ark’s personalised videos which will mean a business can tailor a video for a particular person.
