Ant Dinham is a producer and director for broadcast media with a decade’s experience. He works both for video production companies as a freelance professional, as well as directly for end-clients. He has extensive experience working in corporate videos, documentaries, TV commercials, TV broadcast content, and music videos.
Ant came up through the ranks of video production from a motion graphics background, so he's a rare breed of producer/director that thoroughly understands graphic brand and visual information system integration within video productions.
Ant 'cut his teeth' in TV commercials, progressing steadily through the ranks of the commercial production team at a well known television station; finally working as the Creative Director. After leaving this position Ant went freelance and worked for clients around Australia, before relocating to Britain.
These days, Ant has a track record of producing and / or directing over 400 video productions. In addition, he's worked as an editor and graphic designer on well over 1000 projects.
If you're looking for any kind of video production and maximising the production value possible for your budget is a priority, odds are Ant's experience and flexible business structure are exactly what you're looking for. From a single person crew to a full feature film production team, Ant has access to hundreds of top production professionals, whilst not having to maintain the high overheads incurred by traditional business structure style video production companies. This means every penny of your budget appears on screen.
Although Ant is based in Melbourne, Australia, he regularly facilitates productions around Australia, the UK, Europe, and Africa.
To the corporate sector Ant can facilitate promotional films, internal training videos, video inserts for training exercises, resource videos, and employee news-style updates. Former corporate clients include Lloyds TSB and Royal Bank of Scotland.
For non-profits, Ant has experience delivering documentary video assets for conferences and web use, as well as producing video content capturing presentations. Past clients have included TED Talks.

From simple logo animations to sequences utilising motion capture, green screen, and intensive 3D animation, Ant is also well versed in creating motion graphic branding packages for TV, DVD, and web use. Past clients have included STV and the BBC.
