About me
Spanning over 20 years, 7 creative disciplines, 4 continents and 6 years in academia, my obsession with video, brand and story can be seen in my tireless commitment to the creative industries: From on-location editing of the multi-billion dollar handshakes that'll save the world from carbon, to motion design for Europe's freshest startups. Posters for the impoverished from a dive bar on the tip of Africa, and short films from Manila Bay on Asian students who are changing transport forever. I'm in my element pushing boundaries on: • Narrative and visual style in short branded-films, to multi-platform social and promo video content • Technical and remote workflows for global creative teams • The emerging expectations, skill-sets and role of the edit and motion design freelancer Expect my personal commitment to crafting only the most engaging and innovative of work, delivered on time, on budget, no matter the requirements. • 2021 Reel • http://BureauOf.Video • At a Glance • Professional Career (2001 - 2021) 2020 - Present • Freelance Lead Video Editor & Motion Designer 2018 - 2020 • Head of Creative ~ Red Bull, Shell, etc 2012 - 2020 • Senior Editor, Animator & Designer ~ Ferrari, Shell, etc 2010 - 2012 • Freelance Editor, Animator & Designer ~ Electromode, ACA Music, etc 2007 - 2010 • Senior Editor, Animator & Designer ~ Land Rover, BBC, etc 2005 - 2007 • Freelance Art Director & Designer ~ Solid Black, Vaxo, etc 2002 - 2005 • Art Director & Designer ~ Uber, Metro Music Awards, etc Higher Education (2001 - 2012) • MA Digital Media ~ 2012 *Pass with merit • BA (Hons) Creative Brand Communications ~ 2009 *Awarded bursary • BA Brand Communications ~ 2003 Desktop Software (Cross Platform) ★★★★★ ~ Premiere Pro CC ★★★★ ~ After Effects CC ★★★★ ~ Photoshop CC ★★★ ~ Reason 9.5 / Audition CC ★★★ ~ Illustrator CC / InDesign CC • Contacts & Availability • Email: stephen@bureauof.video YunoJuno: https://app.yunojuno.com/p/stephenolsen/

    London, United KingdomFreelance
    A passion for all that is video, film, animation & design can be seen in my tireless commitment to the creative industries. Spanning over 18 years, 7 creative disciplines, 4 continents and 6 years in academia, I'm in my element pushing the boundaries of narrative and visual style from personal to global brands. Designing brochures for dinner, and editing films on the multi-billion dollar handshakes that'll save the world from carbon. 2D animation for Europe's freshest startups, posters for the impoverished from a dive bar on the tip of Africa, short films from Manila Bay on Asian students who are changing transport forever. Expect my personal commitment to crafting only the most engaging and innovative of work, delivered on time, on budget & with a splash of jazz!

    Head of CreativeGoldhawk Creative
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    Endeared rather to the creative, logistical and technical challenges than the title, a multi-faceted and furiously dynamic position as Head of Creative allows me to put into practice the hard and soft skills developed over an extensive and far-reaching career. Holding the reins on how material for some of the world's largest brands gets created and delivered, across a handful of international creative professionals, formats and platforms, has proven to be a perfect fit. From narrowing broad brand ideas into focused briefs; to scripts, treatments and storyboards that elevate and deliver on the most challenging of brand objectives. Without relinquishing my passion for video creation I ensure I spend as much time editing, animating and finishing material as I do directing. Coupled with a continued (and near-obsessive) fascination with digital media, marketing and the tech world, these various streams have combined into a torrent of work that continues to surprise and delight brands of all sizes and requirements.
