Filmmaker or Videographer?

I’ve been making films for a very long time.

In fact, I still have the Braun Nizo 156┬áSuper 8mm Cine Camera I bought when I was 18, but DON’T WORRY; I tend to use my Sony FX6 Cinema Camera these days.

My preference is to shoot drama. There’s a reason for that (ABOUT ME).

I create training films, corporate films, interviews and documentaries. Also, as you can see on this site, I’ve done a fair bit of animation (ironically, at 19, I won a competition with an animated film shot on my Nizo. DON’T WORRY, I use Adobe After Effects these days).

Who are Short Web Films?

Good question.

Like many sole traders, a name like Short Web Films hints at a massive company (like Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Netflix or Marks & Spencer).

It’s just me; Ian. Hi.

I often work with a director or alone, sometimes with my sons (both of whom went to film school).

But if the project requires it, I’ll bring in audio specialists, lighting technicians, second (or third) cameras and other crew.

I feel I’ve shattered your illusion, but it’s right you know the truth.

TIME FOR ANOTHER VIDEO. This is 8 year’s old but it introduces me. I’ll update soon (the branding is old…)

I am Ian

I’m about to shatter your illusion. A regular ploy used by so many massive organisation, like Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer or Netflix.

It’s actually just me; Ian Williams.

I often work alone or with my sons (both of whom went to film school).

If the project requires it, I’ll bring in directors, audio specialists, lighting technicians, second (or third) cameras and other crew.
