Joe has been training for years to get to this moment. Now his hard work has paid off, and we’re proud to welcome him to 7video. In his blog, we find out more about our video producer’s journey to our team…

I would say that I’ve always been interested in film.

Naturally, as most kids, I consumed a lot of visual media. But I started to take a deeper interest in film and video production when I was at college. From that point on, I’ve never looked back.

When I’m not picking up my camera and going out for a drive somewhere to explore (see photos Joe has taken above), you’ll probably find me in the kitchen. I’ve really got back into cooking and even my own resident MasterChef gran admits I can make a top notch scotch egg.

Outside of the kitchen, I play football twice a week and hope I’ll be able to get back into the gym soon.

My proudest achievement – outside of securing my first full time position as a video producer at 7video – was when I wrapped production on my final year project at university which was based on the resurgence of bare-knuckle boxing in Britain.

Working on that project for well over a year, during the lockdown, was something I took a massive amount of pride in.

Question time

The big debate: Coffee or tea?

A tea man all the way, I’ve got too much energy for coffee!

Let’s say you’re given £1million, what’s on the shopping list?

I would definitely share a lot of that with my family and friends. They have always been there for me and without them, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

What is your motto in life?

Without trying to act like the next world leader, it would be something like ‘everything happens for a reason’ or ‘nothing in life is guaranteed’. It essentially allows you to live a bit more freely and take less for granted; you don’t know when life can turn upside down, as we’ve seen over the past year.

Wise words! Thank you for sharing your story with us and welcome to our team!
