About me
Asli here. I am an experienced Filmmaker with a versatile technical skillset adept at working to a brief as well as creative leadership. I have been working professionally in video production and photography for 5 years creating bespoke and engaging visual content for brands and agencies. Some of my clients include ASOS, adidas, Westfield, Microsoft and Diageo. In the past 18 months, I have been building Secret London's video portfolio, commissioning, shooting, editing branded content and promos. In my time here, I helped evolve a distinct style and look for SL's videos, complete with a distinct colour grade and motion graphics. I take pride in my work and I’m meticulously organised. I have experience working with different formats and softwares, both shooting and editing. Alongside my technical skills, I have a great network of filmmakers and designers that I repeatedly work with. Holla if you want to collaborate with me.
