I am a creative and spirited NCTJ qualified Producer / Interview Director with strong editorial judgement and a background in journalism (print and digital). I specialise in in-depth storytelling, interview directing, story-finding, casting, sensitive access negotiation / building relationships of trust, on-location producing, setting up shoots (at home and abroad), writing and development for UK, US and worldwide networks.

My credits fall under Documentary / Docudrama (incl. National Geographic, i-D / Vice, SyFy and Discovery ID), Branded Content / Digital / Commercials (CNN International, Great Big Story, Yahoo), Millennial / Pop Culture (i-D / Vice, BBC Three, Great Big Story, UKTV), Presenter-Led Factual Entertainment (Channel 4, UKTV), Observational Documentary (BBC One, BBC Three, Channel 5) and Investigative (C4 Dispatches, BBC Panorama, BBC Consumer).

I pride myself on maintaining great relationships with my contributors and bringing true and engaging human stories to the core of any project I work on; stories that entertain and inspire audiences from start to finish. I'm told that contributors warm to me quickly, ranging from ex-prisoners ('Locked Up Abroad'), individuals struggling with addictions and family members of murder victims, to young people discussing social media, modern life and concepts of sexuality and presenters / voiceover artists for authored documentaries and branded content projects.

I hold good camera skills (Canon XF305 / Sony PMW-200), which I'm keen to build up, and I'm comfortable shooting sit-down interviews and second camera.

I also have experience of overseas filming in Texas, Alabama, Tennessee and California and have set up shoots in the US, Costa Rica, Argentina, Brazil, Abu Dhabi, Canada, Israel, France, Greece and Equatorial Guinea. Read Less

I've twice had the opportunity to work with Louise, for months at a time on observational documentary series. On both occasions I found her extremely professional and capable beyond her position.

The programmes we worked on together required us to film in short blocks around the country. Her knowledge of shooting procedure and familiarity with cameras & lighting equipment sets her apart from a standard AP, meaning she can help to make even the tightest shooting schedule achievable.

She has the ability to quickly gain the trust of difficulelicate contributors, something I frequently took advantage of during filming; when called upon, she is capable of conducting a sit down interview of the quality expected from any director or series producer.

I sincerely hope to work with Louise in the future.

Mark Beech, Producer / Director (freelance)
