My name is Paul Atkinson, I live in North East England, for more than 20 years, I made my living making professional video and audio for TV, radio and the Internet, but today, partly because of the changing landscape in digital media, I work with a select number of clients, providing small shoots, editing and post-production services.
My passions are staying fit, delivering interesting projects, filmmaking/educating and spending time in wild Northumberland. I'm currently working on several projects connected to the North East, these include First at the Point (the rich industrial history of a Northumberland village), Wild Places Northern England (a collection of some of the wildest places to visit in Northumberland), and 40 Hell Years (a personal perspective of the music scene in Newcastle from 1980), each a big project in its own right that invloves lots of research, interviews and location shoots)
In addition to scores of corporate video, marketing and advertising productions, my past projects include V United (Official DVD) 2009 (a poetic perspective of being a Newcastle United fan) Magpie Memories (Official DVD) 2010 (another Newcastle United project about the memories of fans and players over the years) and several album and TV projects spanning the last 40 years.
I have a passion for helping people reach their audiences through well produced professional media, and I also consider project ideas from other people that have a passion for their subject, but lack the means to take it into production.
