My name is George Hulley and I am a freelance digital video director, cameraman and editor – and this is my latest showreel. I hope you enjoy it.
At the Beano, I was responsible for shooting and editing comedy sketches; working with talented producer Gina Lyons and directors Ian Curtis and Ben Mallaby. I also would produce short digestible comedy content from created and curated licensed videos and images on a daily bases.

EDITOR / CAMERAMAN
Hello. My name’s George Hulley and I am currently a freelance self shooting director and editor. I specialise in directing online branded content and have many years experience working with clients to make the most engaging content that is possible. I’m an avid Arsenal supporter and I frequent the gym on a regular basis. I love to spend time with my friends at the weekend and enjoy everything that London has to offer. And I can't live without coffee.
I started out at Interlink Comms as a Junior Editor, where I learnt how to produce corporate videos. A year later I joined Videojug as an Editor’s Assistant. Here, I learnt how to manage my own work and other people’s media requests. After a year I went freelance as a cameraman. This allowed me to focus on developing my techncial skills. After a year travelling the world, I returned to Videojug, who offered me a job filming and editing online content. Since then I have moved up within the company working on brand work, and have continued to develop my directing skills with some of Videojug’s bigger clients. Now I have gone back to freelance to continue work in the corporate and online video world.
I’ve used Final Cut Pro for about 10 years, ever since I became interested in making my own films. Lately I’ve moved over to Adobe Creative Cloud, as it has better integrated software for an ever-changing workflow.
The industry standard has developed massively over the last 10 years – from tape to cards, and from standard definition to HD – so I’ve gained experience across a lot of types of cameras. The Sony EX and Canon XF series are my bread and butter, but now I am gaining experience in the higher-end cameras, including the Sony FS7 and Canon C300.
