about us
Established in 2003, mediapool is a video and digital media production company that works closely with organisations and agencies to deliver a variety of communication services.  We pride ourselves in attention to detail, creativity and, most importantly, our clients' satisfaction.  From creating original concepts, through meticulous planning, to imaginative filming and resourceful post production, mediapool always delivers.
The company was founded by BBC trained editor and producer Andrew Herring. Leading the team, Andrew is experienced in producing films from the simplest of talking heads, through to multi-camera live satellite broadcasts. Our lead scriptwriter, Jonathan Priest, has been making films for over twenty years. Having originally studied and taught the natural sciences, his scriptwriting work has earned 46 international awards.  Nick Thatcher is an accomplished journalist and live news presenter for both ITN and the BBC. He also delivers a knockout voice-over!  Col Spector is an enormously talented director, with experience in commercials, drama and documentary film-making.  Our stills photographer, Isabelle Plasschaert, has a natural gift for creating pictures that will make you and your business look stunning!  And Nick Saalfeld is a brainstorming writer who will always come up with left-field ideas to communicate a company message.  What a team!
