We’ve worked with Fin on a couple of occasions and would be keen to work with him again. His work is creative, professional and of an excellent standard. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.
Working with Fin was a great pleasure. While filming Cornwall Youth Orchestra he filmed away in the background so we were hardly aware of him in the room as we worked. His manner was warm and sympathetic to the young musicians’ working environment. He captured the spirit of the occasion in a really inviting way, using gentle panning and subtle change of focus to move from one musician to another, capturing the sense of individuals working to a common purpose. These were impressive skills that produced a really attractive and interesting video with a great ‘feel-good’ atmosphere.
I worked with Fin Davis on The Trench film in 2018, as part of the First World War commemorative celebrations in Bodmin. He was a pleasure to work with and forthcoming in his creative ideas, utilising his expertise and skills to put together a beautifully crafted, evocative film that celebrated not only those brave soldiers from WW1 but also the audience and performers who participated. Amenable to ideas and adaptable, I would recommend him as part of any production team or be equally happy for him to lead creatively.
Fin was polite, friendly and professional from the outset. He was keen to ensure that the final product was to our satisfaction. He has created some great pieces of work.
