We hope everyone is doing well and is safe at home. Despite the need to stay physically distant from one another, the Proudfoot team is united in our efforts to continue to tell the world’s stories.
That being said, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on what makes us who we are, and why we do what we do.
Proudfoot was founded in 2004 by the late, great, Michael Proudfoot. We lost our dear friend at the start of this year, but his legacy continues to permeate the fabric of who we are as a company. Throughout his life, Michael set an example for us all by caring deeply about the stories he told through film. We choose to embody these values today, tomorrow and every day after.
So what does Proudfoot stand for? Please allow us to (re)introduce ourselves…
We are storytellers. We pride ourselves on documenting the compelling stories of exceptional people and organisations, both big and small. Film is our craft, and our technique is based on years of experience. From highlighting local artists to exploring the impact of climate change, we chase the stories that matter most.
We are activists. We strive to make films that call for positive change in our community and in our world, and we align ourselves with people and organisations that do just that.
We are optimistic. We are forward-thinkers and problem-solvers, finding new ways to bring stories to life. We’re open-minded and collaborative at all points of production, never pigeonholing our craft.
Proudfoot is passionate about championing the people we work with. From Culture Seeds, an art workshop promoting community involvement and self expression for isolated or elderly women, to Ice Alive, exploring our melting poles and the scientists striving to safeguard them, we make films about people we believe in.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be posting more #proudshoots and #proudfootage of all the clients, shoots and edits we’re proud to have been a part of recently. We’re still very much open for business, and we’ve been hard at work on some new exciting streaming options for our clients stuck at home. Watch this space…
It’s been a wild ride so far, but we wouldn’t hop off for anything.
Wishing everyone good health and happiness,
