About Me

About me, Sam Gillespie.

I am a commercial filmmaker and photographer, also working as a freelance camera, gimbal and drone operator - based in Bath. 

I work nationally with brands and businesses of all sizes to develop high quality and impactful photo & video content for commercial use, ranging from commercial video production, animated app/software demos, corporate showreels and talking-head interviews.

I pride myself on being affordable, professional and delivering top quality content that allows you to shout about your products and services, hit your marketing objectives and grow your business. Check out some of the clients I have worked with in the past.

I wasn't always a photographer and filmmaker... Prior to starting my video production business - Matchbox Productions Limited - I worked in investment banking & financial services and, prior to going freelance in 2017, had garnered 5 years' experience in the FMCG industry. During that time I worked closely with marketing, advertising and social media agencies whilst managing a £7m marketing budget. I love bringing my marketing experience to the creative process by, for example, advising clients on how to best optimise their video assets for social media advertising, drawing on my first-hand experience of personally running successful 360-degree campaigns.

I love the creative process, and even when not "working" (can I call it that if I love it so much?) I travel to as many far-flung places as I can (check out my Travel Photography and Travel Videos) or capture the stunning scenery the UK has to offer from the air (check out my Aerial Drone Photography). Did I mention that I am a CAA-approved, fully-insured PfCO drone operator? Check out Aerial Drone Filming for more information.
