CASUAL FILMS VALUES
 
What attributes make our Casual Filmers great?
 
Passionate about making our clients happy
 
There are lots of ways you could choose to have your project produced. We’re extremely grateful that our clients choose us. In gratitude, we employ people who are naturally passionate about delivering and delighting those who made that choice.
 
Can-do and proactive
 
Filmmaking is about continual problem solving. We require our staff to think on their feet and act on initiative. Our team are solution focused, taking much of the weight off you, our clients. 
Team spirited and accountable
 
We work closely together so that you get the benefit of the experience and skill of our whole crew. We hire and promote people who show the personal leadership required to happily take accountability for their actions.
 
Doing more with less
 
We produce work which our clients believe is tangibly more effective. To do this, every penny invested needs to show in the final product. We are only able to do this by employing staff who think creatively and with thrift.
 
Open and positive
 
Video production is not the most important job in the world, but it might be one of the best. The process of working with Casual should be enjoyable for everyone involved. Having a positive mindset, even at a 4am call time, is central to this.

The Casual Academy provides 16-25 year olds from diverse, often disadvantaged, backgrounds with hands-on filmmaking experience. Working alongside professional filmmakers, the young people make a film for a local charity that wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford it. This delivers a great win:win - the charity gets a film, the young people get the experience of working for a real client and a useful addition to their showreel.

The Academy also helps the students to understand the key roles in the production process: creative, producer, director and editor. This then allows them then to see where their skills and interests lie, so that they can make a more informed decision about entry points into the industry.

The industry’s lack of diversity is a reflection of how challenging it can be to break into. Most starting positions are unpaid, which considering living costs in cities like London, New York and San Francisco excludes all by the significantly privileged. The academy aims to address this in a small way, helping to make the media industry more reflective of society as a whole.  So far we have reached over 150 young people across our home cities.
 
The Academy has global appeal: wherever you find young people, charities and professional filmmakers who are willing to give some of their time. If you fall into one of those groups, or if you want to make a donation, please drop us a line. We're always looking for new people to work with.
