Johanna Fry Films was formed in the summer of 2010 to immediate acclaim. Initially producing property films for Estate Agents, the concept and client base grew quickly in popularity.
The business was founded by Producer/Director Johanna Fry, who remains extremely hands on and at the helm of every project and contract. Johanna has worked in the professional television and corporate film industry since 1995. She specialized in documentary and factual entertainment genres, and has worked on many high profile UK terrestrial programmes for all the major UK broadcasters. These include a number of property series, such as Channel 4’s Grand Designs (across 3 series) and Property Ladder, and the BBCs Escape to the Country.
I have been fortunate to work on some amazing shoots with incredibly talented people. From filming on an oilrig in the middle of the North Sea, hiking up a Norwegian glacier, interviewing alien abductees in Brazil and of course working with the legendary Kevin McCloud. I learnt the skills, honed my craft, and filled my boots for well over a decade.
Johanna has also worked on a number of corporate promotional films for AXA, Canon & O2.
Whilst maintaining her professional career, Johanna was called upon to produce a number of private videos in such varied locations as St Paul’s Cathedral, the V&A Museum & the Queen’s Stand, Epsom Racecourse.
The quality of the product and the bespoke service Johanna Fry Films provide are absolutely paramount to the success of the business. Year on year the business has grown its client base and scope of projects. Johanna is personally training freelancers to also shoot and edit to the same exemplary standard, to ensure that new projects and clients can be catered for and all deadlines are met.
I am aware that success in business is traditionally measured by turnover and profit. I measure my success by my ability to do a job that I love, that challenges me, and through the many testimonies of appreciation from my clients and other contacts.
