Loveable film content that entertains and connects through authentic emotion and great storytelling.


I worked with Paul on London's Olympic Bid and England's World Cup bid. Paul writes and directs great films: informative films, persuasive films, emotional films, entertaining films. He knows his stuff without being precious. He works fast and can achieve miracles on realistic budgets. He gets under the skin of a brief like a pig snuffling for truffles. He's brilliant at music. Oh, and he's great fun to work with.

We were delighted with the finished film, which was compelling, informative and uplifting - even incorporating brilliantly a moment of humour from a patient which, in the wrong hands, wouldn’t have worked at all. I would happily recommend Buddy to other hospices and charities looking to produce a promotional film for their work and cause
