About Method

We are a full service video production company producing bespoke digital content for brands, organisations and agencies. We are a personable, friendly bunch who enjoy building relationships with contributors and clients alike. We work closely to the needs of our clients and pride ourselves in having complete knowledge of the editorial. This ensures we produce the best possible on-message video content on screen.

We have produced video content with many different sizes and types of organisations, ranging from international brands to national organisations, regional charities and everything in between. No matter your business background, we can bring your stories to life in all kinds of compelling, inspiring and engaging ways.

When we embark on a project with you, we will invest time in getting to know you, your brand, your ethos and your target audience. This is what enables a great, genuine story to be told well, so that’s how we do it.  We’re methodical, efficient, and passionate about the organisations we choose to work with, and this is reflected in the films that we make.

We guide you through the entire process so it runs seamlessly – from concept stage to scriptwriting, video production and editing. Our professional team achieve a high standard of work coupled with a friendly and open customer service. Over the years we have seen how the two complement each other perfectly.

The core team at Method comprises of Creative Director Matt Taylor, Managing Director Leanne Tattum, Producer/Director Dan Latham and Ellie Field-Carter Junior Content Producer. Our team of associate camera operators, directors of photography and animation director help us to fulfil every brief we take on, to the highest of standards.

Method Team

Leanne Tattum

Managing Director

After a decade at the BBC there isn’t much Leanne doesn’t know about video production. She’s worked across most genres of programming, from daytime television to current affairs, and has produced flagship shows and award-winning documentaries for BBC 2 and BBC 4. Leanne now oversees pre-production and project manages all of Method’s output.

When she has a spare moment Leanne will be off brushing up on her tap dancing skills.

Matt Taylor

Creative Director

Matt has spent a career in film and video. Editor, director, film maker, he worked for over 10 years at the BBC on titles such as Coast and Countryfile and The Gadget Show.  Matt particularly enjoys the challenge of live shoots and getting creative with project briefs from clients.

When Matt’s not working it’s all about the tunes! Going to gigs, putting on gigs and trying to impress (bore) people with his encyclopaedic knowledge of 80/90s indie and techno.

 

Dan Latham

Producer/Director

Dan’s happiest when he’s on location (or in the cinema!) Dan has produced/directed everything from branded content to short films and even the odd music video. With a keen eye for detail and an understanding of every aspect of the video production process, Dan’s the man to lead on your video project. He excels in making crew and clients feel at ease, possibly because they are laughing at his terrible jokes, but we’re proud that his hard work and dedication always shows in all of our finished work.

Ellie Field-Carter

Junior Content Producer

An organisational whirlwind! Ellie is a key member of the team making sure everyone knows where they need to be and when. Ellie will make sure all filming permits and licences are secured and has a keen eye for detail. This is vital for every shoot, from filming on the busy streets of the city to a World War recreation. When Ellie’s not busy organising on a shoot you will find her behind the lens grabbing shots of the team in action, you might want to keep out of her way!

Jen Sandford

Social Media Guru

Jen worked in Birmingham’s indie TV industry, producing Broadcast Factual Entertainment programmes, for many years. She now manages Method’s social media, writing and producing content across all of the Method in Motion social channels. And this book, George Orwell’s Nineteen eighty-four, pretty much changed the world for her. In 1984!
