About | Thom Hoffman
I'm an award-winning freelance filmmaker, multimedia producer and consultant. My work spans science, culture, education, comedy and documentary. The best projects happen somewhere in between.
I work across all areas of production: devising ideas, writing, directing, shooting, and editing. I'm used to leading large teams on complex projects. Or as a solo multimedia journalist in remote locations with quick turnarounds. I'm obsessed with choosing the best medium and style for the message. All film techniques and approaches are on the table to push the creativity and ambition of each project.
In my consultancy work I come into organisations to develop digital strategy, and give workshops introducing people to multimedia.
