Head of Production

Philip Pickard

I like to build trust with clients and colleagues whilst making films that stimulate minds and inform perceptions. I have learnt how effective a good story is when told well. Over 25 years, I have worked in theatre, film and television, comedy, business, sports-media, corporate communications and in the charitable and educational sectors. Personal highlights include appearing in every episode of BBC2s ‘The Office’; producing and directing a series of documentary features on professional football in the Arab world; and #talkaboutsuicide a digital platform I produced for a charity that won Gold for Best Short Film at the New York International Film Festival in 2018. I am excited and delighted to be a founder of shortstories. Our approach offers something fresh and unique to clients who have a requirement for film/video.
