Simon Banks is passionate about planning, shooting and producing stand-out videos that really work for companies and individuals.
With a degree in Communications and Media and inspired since the age of 16 to be a video cameraman, Simon worked and traveled for over 20 years as a news cameraman and DOP for leading broadcasters in his native Australia, the USA, and here in the UK for the BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and National Geographic.
His relaxed Aussie manner makes Simon a great teacher and he lectures at UAL (University Arts London) on Television Production. He's also a sought-after mentor.
Simon also helps people overcome their fear of how they sound and look on camera, and developing confidence to give their best performance. Simon combines this talent training with all the technical expertise and knowledge needed to produce outstanding videos that deliver results and keep clients coming back, year after year.

Since then, Tallboy has successfully delivered 1000’s of high-quality videos for a range of corporate, charity and government clients including Morgan Stanley, Novartis, Age UK, Tui and Sony.
Simon’s experience means his insights into how businesses, corporations and individuals communicate are invaluable when creating video. He instinctively knows the visual treatment that’s best for each production and the right tone of voice needed to effectively and persuasively deliver the messages. He’s also skilled in how to maximise the return for each video as a marketing tool across all media channels.
Now with his new venture, Get Video Right, Simon aims to help business owners, entrepreneurs and start-ups to unlock the power of video with affordable packages based on his essential guide book. He enables them to confidently connect directly with their target audience and deliver their authentic brand story or sales pitch.Visit www.tallboy.co.uk ►
