Our approach

We want to make the best quality moving image content. We produce a diverse range of content for an equally diverse range of clients. With a design-led understanding sympathetic to your brand, we can work with you from concept to screen, or integrate with an existing campaign from your own designs. We aim to provide our clients with fixed costs, giving them control over their budgets and resources.  We pride ourselves in being transparent and honest, doing everything possible to achieve the best creative results.

The Team

We enjoy what we do, and like to work with people that share our passion. Our team comprises of a mix of talented friends that we have come to disrespect over the 10 years Olaus Roe has been producing in the video and graphics arenas.

Andy Bourne

Over 20 years experience in video and graphics. Director, producer, designer, editor, and Olaus Roe founder. Qualified airborne drone camera operator. Incapable of not spilling his coffee.

Dan Hedger

Video renaissance man; experienced designer, compositor, editor and director. Wannabe rock star. No hair.

Ceri Howe

Compositor, production assistant and talented music composer. Tragic love life.

Eric Huyton

Globally experienced broadcast lighting cameraman. Has been there, done that.

Leah Walker

Battle-hardened compositor, designer and art director. 

Simon Cox

The brilliantly gifted, large and hairy lighting cameraman. Holds sea platfrom work certification.

Paul Baker

Dependable and patient soundman. Known to stop road workers laying tarmac to get quiet on set.

Debbie Taylor

Serene producer and project co-ordinator of the video and TV world. Whip-cracker and mad cat-lady to the studio team.

As a team, we share a hot-tub of skills in camerawork, lighting, editing, animation, 3D modelling, compositing, tea-making, and audio. And of course producing, directing, writing, storyboarding, graphic design and time travel (for when you need that video yesterday.)
