Proudfoot are a production company and creative consultancy based in Clerkenwell, London. Since being founded in 2004 by Michael Proudfoot we’ve been producing films that look great, sound great and deliver messages in an engaging and effective way.
Gemma spent her first 15 years in the industry producing and directing all over the world. She is now happily production managing and is responsible for the smooth day-to-day running of Proudfoot’s productions. Gemma still enjoys creeping into the edit suite at any given opportunity.
Creative Director & Filmmaker
Eddie studied Human Sciences at University and emerged (via Alaska) with a taste for documentary film making. Many years later, having filmed all over the world, from the Payatas dump site in Manila to the wild forests of Siberia, and all sorts of people, from Paul McCartney to the heroic mothers of the Korogocho slum in Nairobi, Eddie understands how to make a story jump from the screen into your heart.
Rick spent the Summer of 2006 working in rural Tanzania and is now living in London, but has never forgotten his Yorkshire roots. In his 5 years at Proudfoot he has learned to edit, shoot, light and direct to an incredibly high standard. His instinctive eye and compassionate approach to interviews make him a valuable asset to the company.
After work experience at Proudfoot as part of her Drama degree, Marion joined Proudfoot permanently in September 2014. She was born in Paris and has always been passionate about films and theatre. Her interest in documentary filmmaking began at the tender age of 16 when she made an 'award-deserving' film about a school trip to Auschwitz. The rest is history.
Ben is a son of North London and a keen supporter of the team that plays in red. He has other interests that range from throwing himself out of aeroplanes (with a parachute) to hard rock music. We have found that his interests are in tune with his talents as an editor, creatively brave and always musically rhythmic. Ben can make a real difference to a film; we think he is one of the best editors in London.
Chairman & Filmmaker
Michael is a graduate of the Royal College of Art film school. He spent 18 years as Creative Director of a major broadcast indie before forming Proudfoot in 2004. Michael’s wide-ranging interests from contemporary art to country music are reflected in his many award-winning films for broadcast television and industrial clients.
Managing Director & Producer
Simon has been Proudfoot's producer since the company was founded in 2004. He has been involved in production for more than 26 years, initially in TV commercials but also in the broadcast and corporate sectors. He has directed films for Proudfoot's clients but is most effective in a supporting role, working closely with clients, agencies and the company's creative team. We all have our weaknesses and Simon's is Portsmouth Football Club.
