Mary Mellor, Author of The Future of Money



“Ben Holden is creative, personable and skilled. His up-to-date knowledge of hardware, his experience of a range of techniques and his editing skill make him an asset on any film-making project. He also brings an unusual combination of passion for ideas and a relaxed manner which make him a pleasure to work with. It is thus with great pleasure that I recommend him.”

“Thank you for the great job you did on the production of the Convocation Weekend video! Such a cool piece of video footage from our event – especially given the amount of time spent to shoot it. Much appreciated by all our team.”

“Fleetfoot Studios captured exactly the essence of the message we hoped for, with beautiful cinematography, editing and sound design, all done within the timeframe with no fuss and with a great sensitivity to all the people involved on or off camera.”

“I was very impressed with the film Fleetfoot Studios produced. They put it together in no time at all and several of our investors also praised it highly. They clearly have a strong instinct for film work, both the technical and the human aspects. They made me feel very at ease and it was a real pleasure to work with them.”
