Hi, my name's Charlie Kinross and I believe that the best, most honest way for you to know what I can bring to your project, is to hear what other Series Producer's think I was able to contribute to their shows recently ...

"Charlie is a delight to work with. He works extremely well with contributors, helping to bring out the best in them in front of the camera every time. He is thorough in his approach to each shoot, every story is clear and well thought out. The footage he captures tells the story and comes together very easily in the edit. He always communicates extremely well with the office during and after each shoot ensuring that all aspects of production know exactly what is going on." Martyn Bon, SP, Series 05 "Money for Nothing" BBC1, Friel Kean films.

“Charlie's knowledge and enthusiasm for history, his superb shooting and his warmth with contributors were all great assets for us on Heir Hunters. He delivered some really cracking stories and he brings an energy and creative flair that shine through in his rushes”
John Widdup, SP, Series 11 "Heir Hunters" BBC1 (TX Jan / Feb 2017)

“Charlie shot some of our very complicated and emotive nightmare neighbour stories. He got the best out of some very difficult contributors and managed to talk both sides on board on several occasions and overall produced some excellent stories. Shooting wise Charlie is very creative and raised the bar in the overall look of the programme.”
Sarah Rest , SP , Series 05 "Nightmare Neighbour Next Door" , Channel 5. TX end 2016

“Charlie PD'd our recent All 4 Shorts Series with infectious enthusiasm and calm measured sensitivity to the subject matter. He was organised and committed and made both the production and post production process run on time and on brief. We are all really pleased with the outcome and look forward to working with Charlie again in the near future.”
Ged Cleugh , Head of TV, Spectrecom Films. "Posh Dogs" All4 TX March 2016

“Don't be fooled by this dry witted well-spoken Big Bear. Charlie is one of the most sensitive guys I have had the pleasure to work with. His excellent shooting skills combined with his passion for storytelling and ability to produce a story makes him top of any recruiting list.”
Keeley Van Dyke, SP, Firecracker Films. "Gypsy Brides US" Series 05 (UK TX June 2016)

I should add that I also shoot establishing GVs for shows on my 4K & HD drone and I have an estate car full of HD Camera gear , sliders , LED lights and wireless mics for future shoots if you need them.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Many thanks, Charlie Kinross.

John Widdup

Don't be fooled by this dry witted well-spoken Big Bear. Charlie is one of the most sensitive guys I have had the pleasure to work with. His excellent shooting skills combined with his passion for storytelling and ability to produce a story makes him top of any recruiting list.

Keeley Van Dyke Series Producer

Charlie PD'd our recent All 4 Shorts Series with infectious enthusiasm and calm measured sensitivity to the subject matter. He was organised and committed and made both the production and post production process run on time and on brief. We are all really pleased with the outcome and look forward to working with Charlie again in the near future.

Ged Cleugh - Head of Film & TV, Spectrecom Films

Charlie worked with us on our Dog Hotel series for UKTV. It was a 10 week shoot that involved filming with assorted four-legged friends in a very busy doggy hotel. He was not only brilliant with the scores of pups he had to contend with each day but also with the human contributors - and our presenters!

JULIE HEATHCOTE

Charlie is a fearless and imaginative DoP. The first time we met he was waiting at Farringdon Tube reading a copy of "American Pastoral" by Phillip Roth - one of my favourite novels. We hit it off immediately and embarked on a few days of shooting on the London Underground in what proved to be a mutually thrilling experience with incredible results. As a director it's important for me to work with a DoP who speaks the same language - a language beyond technical. We're stealing moments from reality that ordinarily get overlooked - so, a poetic understanding of both the grand and the banal is essential. Charlie's got that in spades - which frees him up to love what he does. I'll end with this: We were shooting a short on a tight schedule and we needed a shot on a bus. We didn't have permission so I told Charlie to jump on a 38 with our actor to knock off what we needed while I made my way to the next location. He turned to me and said - "...What? And miss out on all the fun? C'mon, get on the bus..." So I did. It's the stuff that dreams are made of.

Grant Fulton, Freelance Creative Director ITN Productions

Charlie is an exceptional cameraman with an eye for detail, framing, building sequences and producing work that can get you in and out of any edit. He is one of the few cameramen I have worked with that have been able to not only get fantastic footage but also record audio and light to a high degree. I have left him to work autonomously, within a team and as a director and he has strived in all circumstances. His ability to film is paralleled by his aptitude for producing and interviewing, gaining the trust of contributors, working with difficult and sensitive subject matter and at times finding editorial gems that would have gone undiscovered. He also has a unique ability to find a humorous angle where appropriate and treat a serious topic with the utmost respect.

I would highly recommend Charlie as a shooting PD/cameraman/DOP.

Nina Stevens Associate Producer Parkinson Productions

Charlie operated a 5D and sound for us on a crucial day filming a self-funded pilot. He was committed to our project as if he had been involved with it for weeks, and not just since call time. He never flagged and contributed useful ideas throughout a long day. Our contributors enjoyed having him around as did we and his rushes were strong. We have since cut a sizzle from Charlie's material which has been well received. Great shooter and one of the team from the 'off'.
