We are a creative production company working with leading brands and broadcasters worldwide. With our roots firmly in narrative and story-telling, we work to produce engaging, informative and entertaining multimedia projects that sound louder and travel further.
We are an eclectic team of multilingual producers, directors, writers, editors, animators and photographers. Scroll around to get to know us better.
This is where we work.
Company Director Charlotte Knowles has over 12 years of experience working in film and television in the UK, France, Brazil, Italy and China. She has produced documentary work for the BBC, ITN and Arte and her video, film and photography pieces have been featured by national press as well as international film festivals and broadcasters.
Post-production coordinator Laura Castellano Astruc comes to us from Madrid where she trained and worked in Journalism before co-creating the online magazine, Mayhem. Laura manages all of the post-production at Shoots & Leaves, bringing her talent for impacting story-telling to every production.
Resident Artist Niels Ladefoged is our go-to man for all things factual. Niels started his career working as an Editor at the world-renowned Nordic Film in his home country Denmark before moving to London to pursue documentary directing. Niels joins us on nearly every shoot we do.
Assistant producer Libby Knowles is a multilingual film history expert who produces our international documentary projects as well as many commercial video productions. Libby's cinematic collaboration with poet Jess Green at the Roundhouse, Camden, was the precursor project to the Shoots & Leaves production of 'This Time Last Year'.
From our beautiful Brixton studio, we co-ordinate a multitude of film, video, photography and graphic design projects for national and global brands.
Our resolve is to communicate and innovate. We constantly invest in and nurture independent film and photography projects in order to engage our audiences more intimately and expand our creative potential. Experimenting with fresh ideas allows us to carve new stylistic paths in creative film, photography and video-making and forge original ideas which feed back into every aspect of work here at Shoots & Leaves.
