At the heart of everything we do is you — the customer. Our goal is to help you achieve your goals through the effective use of video communications. We know how important your business and brand are and we know how important your film project is. That’s why you’ll receive nothing but our undivided attention, commitment and dedication throughout the film-making process. We treat every project as our most important yet and strive to deliver the best piece of work we have ever done each and every time.
Behind our ethos is our talented team of internationally experienced creative producers. All aspects of your production are handled in house and we encourage our customers to come and spend time with us at any point of the production process to meet the team and find our more about how your film comes together.
Dan was one of the founders of Inspired in 2006. Dan’s days, weeks and months tend to revolve around the strategic direction of Inspired but he can also often be found getting involved with researching our documentary projects or working late at night in the editing suite. Dan is a film buff with a passion for people and their stories. He’s a keen golfer and swimmer, occasionally combining the two after an errant drive.
As Creative Director Ryan is at the heart of all our projects. His creativity and vision are key to us delivering films that inspire. His attention to detail and passionate belief that we should constantly be pushing boundaries with our work ensures that the quality and creativity of our work is consistently high. Ryan is equally at home planning, directing, shooting or editing. Ryan has a Trabant, a Staffordshire Bull terrier and a Ukulele.
Mike makes sure that your film is on message and does what you need it to do. His enthusiasm and determination to continue to explore new ideas and technologies means that we can always be relied on to offer our customers the best possible solutions. Although he hasn’t got a great voice he definitely makes sure he sings our praises to anyone who’ll listen. His passion for Inspired is only matched by his passion for his beloved Stoke City and having a good time.
Severin lives and breathes film and loves to bring new styles and techniques to Inspired’s projects. He has worked in the film industry for many years and ran a successful production company of his own before joining the team at Inspired. Fascinated by both technology and history you are equally likely to find Severin wearing a VR headset and immersed in a virtual world or his Viking reenactment armour battling in the grounds of a castle somewhere.
Tom joined Inspired from the highly regarded media production course at Staffordshire University, and is now a core part of the production team. He brings with him a professionalism and diligence which always exceeds expectations. A skilled camera op and editor, Tom’s film making skills are only matched by his skills on the bass guitar and he can be found most weekends gigging with his band Fears Chella.
Sidd brings her positive attitude to everything she does at Inspired. Whether she is with clients on a shoot or with the team in the office her enthusiasm and personality are infectious. A talented allrounder she is equally happy behind the camera or the edit suite.

A director in the making Ed virtually never stops creating films. At Inspired he is one of our lead camera operators and involved in the production of most of our feature length work.

Known equally for his encyclopaedic film knowledge and his collection of hundreds of old camera lenses Ed is always a good person to have on a shoot.
The youngest member of Inspired (we wont mention the age difference between him and some other team members) James is an important part of the production team. If you see us out filming you will most likely see James working hard to make sure we get all the shots we need. Another member of the team who has graduated from one of the great film courses at Staffordshire University James loves film making almost as much as he loves a bacon butty.
