      Joe is Reels in Motion’s safe pair of hands. With over 10 years experience heading up the Production department, we challenge you to find something he hasn’t done. From filming at height, underwater or on top of fast-moving vehicles, Joe has it covered. He is a passionate Stoke City fan and loves Christmas.

    • Matt Hubbard

      Accounts Director

    • Nick Butler

      Head of Animation

      Nick is Reels’ in-house animator and all round after effects guru. Nick came to Reels in 2014 and joined the growing animation department. His ability to create animation that not only wows visually but also holds our clients’ key messages at their core, means that he hasn’t had a day off the editing suite since.
      When unchained from his computer, Nick loves Liverpool FC which goes down really well with Joe.

      Production Manager

      With over 20 years of experience under his belt, John has worked with and delivered video content for many well-known brands including BT, Marriott Hotels, Tui, The BBC, ITV and The Ministry of Defence to name just a few.

      As well as an accomplished production manager, he has a wealth of experience behind the camera, in the edit suite and is also an accredited CAA aerial drone pilot.

      Being a connoisseur of the finest malts has absolutely nothing to do with him being a kilt-wearing Scotsman! (This also goes down well with Joe )
