Johann Perry

Since graduating from Newcastle with a degree in film and photography, I have worked mostly for the British Broadcast Television Industry.

Over the last 15 years, I have filmed pop videos, dramas, commercials, and collaborated on films with contemporary artists, but my main focus has been documentaries. From fly-on-the-wall to arts, science and history docs, I’m just as comfortable making observational films, presenter-led and interview-based documentaries and docudramas. I am proud to be a part of Britain’s long tradition in quality documentary-making and have worked with respected and award-winning film-makers such as Vanessa Engle, Ben Anthony, Olly Lambert,  Leo Regan, and Sam Hobkinson

It’s a very exciting time to be a cameraman as new technology is driving image quality to levels only dreamed of even 5 years ago. I am embracing new technologies have recently invested in the New Arri Amira camera which is adding real cinematic possibilities for documentary films.

I own a comprehensive range of camera and film equipment and can supply production with film packages for most projects.
