HGA are excited to welcome a new team member to our in-house Video team. Say hello to our new Video Producer, Josh Holdaway who will be shooting, editing and producing digital content for our events, alongside bespoke video projects.
Josh graduated in 2009 with a degree in Cinematography and Film/Video Production from the University of Wales. He began his professional career as a freelance Camera Operator, from which he went on to have a multitude of roles including Producer, Director, Cinematographer and Editor. After a decade in industry, and film shoots all over the world, including in New York, Malawi, Switzerland and Germany, he joins our talented pool of Video Producers here at HGA.
Outside of work he enjoys skateboarding, playing football, watching films (of course!), international travel and supporting Manchester United.
We asked him why he decided to make the move to HGA, here’s what he said…
‘’Being a freelancer for so long had its benefits, but I was looking for an opportunity to work every day within a team that consistently drives to deliver high standards to a greater brand of client. I’m always looking to progress and become a better Video Producer and HGA offers the environment I was craving – one where I am surrounded by talented people that will help get the best out of me, ultimately delivering better end products together. It also comes with the added bonus of being able to settle in one place and being able to make a home in Manchester”.
Steven Hartley our Creative Director and Josh’s Line Manager comments, ‘’Due to the fast-paced nature of our video department, we needed a true all-round video producer, someone who is as comfortable shooting film as they are editing and producing. Josh is exactly that person – his creativity, broad skill set and vast experience in the field makes him the perfect fit for the role. He’s great with clients and knows how to get the best out of a shoot, maximising the client’s brief to exceed all expectations, and ensuring our video offering keeps going from strength to strength’’.
