About Jack

Memorable, impactful, engaging and creative are my four defining factors, which I carry with confidence. I’m twenty three years old and living in Camden, London. At the young and tender age of 23 I am pretty proud of what I have achieved so far; setting up my own video production company, Capiche Films (Capichefilms.com), achieved a 2:1 in Film & Creative Writing at Essex University, which included a year abroad in Brisbane, Australia (the greatest year of my life, where I gained my first IMDB credits!), additionally I've worked at some Londons biggest production houses like Blink, Agile & Blast Films. Away from film-making I like to keep myself healthy, playing 7-aside football once a week, going to the gym and the very occasional sailing in Southampton where my dad lives. Since the age of seventeen I've been lucky enough to work with not just Londons biggest video production companies but Australia's where in 2014 I embarked on a study year abroad.

Isobelle Walton
Producer, Agile Films

Jack applied to us for a two-week work experience placement through ‘my first job in film’. Upon viewing his CV and cover letter it was immediately clear that he was not only passionate about film but also knowledgeable. In addition to the CV & Cover letter we also asked for a short video application to be created - out of the 50 people that applied Jack was one of only two people to actually do this. Jack’s responsibilities during his time at Agile was essentially that of a production runner which included the day-to-day tasks of running a busy production office such as picking up/delivering packages, loading/unloading equipment and making teas/coffee. I am pleased to say that he applied himself equally to all of these tasks no matter their size or importance. Secondly Jack also gained production experience working on multiple shoots for Agile Films. During these he took on responsibilities that included sourcing food and equipment, tech running, edit assistant, coordinating production on location and helping out with any other production related tasks. Finally, Jack helped out in the office and with his technical knowledge he was able to advise on the advanced use of spreadsheets and also conducted research online and via the phone which included everything from finding remote control dirt bikes to underwater filming locations to researching hotels in Manhattan. I can confidently say that during his time at Agile, Jack has proved his knowledge, skills and most importantly taking the initiative. I would highly recommend Jack as an Asset to any company or production. Kind regards, Isobelle Walton
