TEAM

Meet the team.

We have the flexibility to put together exactly the right team to fit your production – from a small, mobile unit to capture that special vox pop series or event, through to a multi-faceted feature drama crew.

 

Our team, along with a highly talented core pool of freelancers, lead our productions. They are supported by a network of exceptional people working at the top of their fields in the industry, who all embrace and demonstrate the values that we feel makes Flix just that extra bit special.

Leon Ancliffe

Managing Director & Creative Lead
Bio

Leon founded Flix Films in 2009, building on his experience in creative media  freelancing as a cinematographer and director on numerous projects.

His aim was to create a production company that reflected his high ethical standards and desire to influence positive change, benefiting people across the UK and beyond. His passion for people and original creativity underpin every project, including new ventures into virtual reality technology.

In his spare time, when he’s allowed some, he picks up his trusty GoPro and backpack and explores the world, bringing back new ideas and energy (and often an unruly beard).

Claire Pope

Development Producer & Editor
Bio

Claire has been a freelance Development Producer and Editor for Flix since 2011, bringing to her projects a wealth of creative experience and a level of insight and sensitivity that perfectly fits with Flix’s mission.

She has produced independent documentaries on topics ranging from refugees to ‘terrorist’ peace campaigners and beyond, and travelled to Uganda to produce a series of short films for a baby rescue center, working with former child soldiers to tell their stories and working to promote the charity that assists them.

Her hands-on approach carries right through from development to the editing process (which she loves as late night edits often require late night chocolate).
