I will match the artistry in your business and the creativity in your story telling and together we can deliver a production that will engage a wide audience for a long time to come.

Here is a selection of some of my more recent videos. They show a range of styles and budgets.


microfilm is fronted by myself, Chris Barnett, together with other talented individuals we make up a fantastic filmmaking team.



I am an individual filmmaker working with a pool of talented freelancers who help with various roles. As a team we are filmmakers and story tellers, creating stories from the heart that really grab the attention of your viewers.

"Chris is a talented and friendly individual with expertise in documentary style filmmaking; community video, public sector video (Councils, NHS trust etc) and charities. Documentary style filmmaking requires a connection with both the subject matter and importantly the clients and contributors, Chris's approachable, friendly, yet professional manner is ideal for this kind of work."

What can microfilm do for you?

I am, fundamentally, a filmmaker and story teller. It is my belief that stories from the heart really grab the attention of your viewers. The story of the hard work and development of your business or the story of your family, and the depth of your connection to your work and loved ones, is your best asset. If everyone could see and feel how much your they mean to you, everyone would want to be part of it, and buy into it. And what better way to be able to show this than to put it into a short-form video, this is what I aim to put on the screen for you.

If you would like to make a short video about your business, yourself, or your family, then we can help you realise it. Either by teaching you the skills to do it yourself or by using our expertise to craft a video that suits your form and function perfectly.
