“Working with John Scotland on TEDxLiverpool was an absolute dream. He is hugely professional but also personable. Most importantly, he really cares about the video content he produces.
We were hosting Sir Ken Robinson who was doing his first-ever TEDx event so it was critical that we captured the day perfectly. John thoroughly exceeded our high expectations so I couldn't recommend him more highly if you're considering a collaboration with him."
Herb Kim – Founder & CEO of Thinking Digital Limited
John is a great filmmaker, extremely well organised and a pleasure to work with, I recommend him for any project that includes filmmaking, production and training. He is astute, fastidious and determined to deliver a great product.
