About Barrass Video Production

Hi I’m Kristian Barrass. I’m an experienced and creative lighting TV/Corporate camera operator. Although I’m based in Hull in East Yorkshire, I offer location filming services across the North/Midlands and whole UK.

Amongst the cities I regularly work in are Leeds, Sheffield, Newcastle, Manchester, Liverpool, Sunderland, Nottingham, Birmingham, Grimsby, Doncaster, Derby And Leicester.

With 18 years of broadcast TV experience, I’ve worked on a wide variety of network and regional programmes including lifestyle, observational, light-entertainment, current affairs, news and sport for all of the main broadcasters and numerous leading independent production companies.

I specialise in location filming and I’m equally happy to work as a single-man lighting camera operator or with a sound recordist. I’m accustomed to working to tight deadlines, often in difficult situations whilst maintaining a creative, sensitive and professional approach.

I began my career as a staff camera operator at ITV Yorkshire in 1997 where I worked for 2 years on news, sport, current affairs and the “Tonight” magazine show. From there I progressed to international broadcaster BSkyB where I worked for 4 years as a contracted lighting camera operator across the full range of Sky Sports programming both in the UK and Europe. During this period I was assigned to work on numerous high profile sporting events and programmes.

I turned freelance in 2003 and although Sky Sports continued to be my main client, I branched out into other areas of programme production and worked for all the main terrestrial UK broadcasters and for dozens of leading independent production companies.

2011 again saw me return to Sky Sports when I once again gained a prestigious camera operator contract which is currently in place.

Being an approved supplier to the BBC, ITV and Sky Sports, I am fully insured and have completed relevant health and safety courses.

The Video Revolution
The explosion in the use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets has seen a massive increase in the use of video as a promotional tool by companies of all sizes. Has your business taken advantage of the marketing benefits video can offer?

With the continued reduction of production and equipment costs, there has never been a better time to commission video as part of your companies marketing strategy. This could range from simply hiring me to film your event for posterity, record of a new building/infrastructure project or as part of the following:

  • Corporate Identity
  • Promotional Campaigns
  • New Product Launches
  • Staff Training & Inductions
  • Health & Safety Training
  • Sales Reps / Info Pack / Promotional Material
  • Internal Presentations and information
  • Trade Exhibitions, Conferences and Seminars
  • Multi Camera Conference/Internal awards ceremony filming
  • Website based Video Podcasts
Although I am not a video production company as such, I have built up many contacts in the industry and would be able to arrange and project manage editing services if required.
