2015/First half of 2016 Pickford Media Reel | Throwback Thursday

WOW, we have come a long way!

When we first started Pickford I was constantly updating our reel with our latest work, because it seemed like every job we had we improved in leaps and bounds (I still feel this way to an extent and we’re always upgrading our kit so I always want to be showing our prospective clients our latest possible work!), and it’s been a nice little reflective journey down memory lane digging this video out again.

I’m immensely proud of all of the work we’ve done, despite having that constant “Ooooh if ONLY I could redo this shot, I would do XYZ, if ONLY I had XXX software back when we did that! Etc, etc” feeling. Even though I can see room for improvement, I can stand by the fact that I have always, always given projects my 100%, absolute very best, and I always, always will.

 

We’d be so appreciative of any support you could give us with a little tweet, and feel free to tag any business people you recognise (there’s a fair few in there; we are SO lucky to have worked with some of our biz idols so early on!).

By having your own business you can, you can kind of dictate as to what areas you are going to specialise in. That’s what I love, and If you can combine your passion obviously with work, everybody knows it’s the best possible thing you can do. Click To Tweet

 

Pulling such long hours doing what you do, it’s so important that your work becomes your life. Click To Tweet

Wow, well who’s a little bit nervous about being the first male speaker ever? Click To Tweet

I love to be around other creative people and being successful at one thing means I’ve been able to dabble in other things. Click To Tweet

Where did the whole entrepreneurial journey start for you? That’s a good question.When does it ever start for anyone? I like to think that I was an entrepreneur probably from the age of seven. Click To Tweet

Everything and yet nothing has prepared you for what lies ahead. Click To Tweet

There are so many distractions in your life, so it’s really, really hard to sometimes focus on that one goal. Click To Tweet

It’s so hard when you are a woman in business firstly, and secondlywhen you have no one except your staff to lean on, you kind of feel isolated. Click To Tweet

The midwife came up to Justine and myself, she’s like, now are you guys right, do you need anything?And I said, actually I have a ripper headache, do you have any Panadol? Click To Tweet

You can’t move forward if you’re not inspired to really understand what the purpose is of what you’re doing.And that goes for anything in life, is what is your purpose? Click To Tweet

Most of all I think I really just wanted to be able to execute my ideas and see those come to fruitionand not be told by other people that my ideas weren’t valid. Click To Tweet

Sometimes those dreams and ambitions can seem really daunting, and you’re like,yeah I’d love to do that but where do I start? How do I do it? So it just stays as a dream. Click To Tweet
