About us

Do you want to create compelling video content? Communicate your story and your brand?

Owner of Skills2Film, Jeremy Humphries, is an award winning, BBC trained cameraman who has been filming documentaries around the world for over 35 years. He has filmed child mine victims in Angola, Nelson Mandela campaigning for black farmer’s rights in South Africa, filmed the meeting of the last remaining British and German veterans of World War 1 and he has filmed prize winning chrysanthemum growers for Gardeners’ World too!

All these have one thing in common: using the visual image to inform, educate and influence.

Jeremy and his team of practising broadcast professionals at Skills2Film train and equip you to create effective, compelling, engaging video content. To sell your brand and to tell your story.

From the start of your decision making process, we train you how to utilise video content specifically for your brand and company. We then train you how to script, film, produce and present your story. We use our own case studies from TV programmes – many of which you will have seen – to explain what works and what doesn’t.
