Richard Knew

Knew Productions was founded in 1997 by Richard Knew, an award-winning producer/director and a Fellow of the Institute of Videography. Under his leadership, the Knew Productions team has produced hundreds of corporate videos and enabled clients to make an impact, whatever their line of work.

Richard Knew at Video Editing Suite Chester WrexhamOver the years, Richard has directed a number of short films – three of which scooped shiny ‘gongs’ that sit proudly on our shelves. For television, Richard has directed and edited numerous programmes for BBC Wales and ITV Wales, including Refresh, Canals of Wales, Shotgun Slideshow, The Lyrics Game and BBC Wales’s flagship current affairs programme Week in Week Out. In his early years, fresh out of film school he enjoyed producing and directing a number of broadcast pop videos for bands such as Camera and The Wedding Present; and for major record companies like RCA. It’s this exciting background in pop videos and television that sets Richard apart from most corporate video producers.

“Richard is a producers’ dream. His ideas are original and creative with more than a hint of playful quirkiness, and he and his team are able to shoot, edit and deliver the finished product within the confines of today’s budgetary limitations. Having worked closely with Richard on several BAFTA winning music video series, I came to rely on his visual flair and ability to come up with the goods despite the fact that we were based at opposite ends of Wales.”
