Patrick Butler

VIDEOGRAPHER & DOCUMENTARY MAKER

Patrick Butler is the first person we contact when there’s a video to be made. Waterford native, and graduate of IADT in Dún Laoghaire, Patrick’s worked with Aileen on “The Green Fields of Vietnam” documentary – that’s the photo of us filming in a rubber plantation in the demilitarized zone in central Vietnam – as well as numerous commercial videos.

A great personality working with people, calm under pressure, and good equipment – that’s all in the mix when Patrick is on the job.

And yes, the coffee he makes is in the palpitations territory. Great for the late night editing deadlines.

Maria Holm Petersen

Marketing Intern from Denmark

Is with us until Christmas. Her flexible approach enables her to think about video ideas in the morning, help with the workshops later in the day, while planning our next marketing campaign. We’ll miss her when she returns to Scandinavia in December.
