See what my clients have to say about me:-

A first rate and highly experienced editor and excellent tutor. Very patient, attentive to details and thorough. I know exactly where to go now for video editing, animation and after effects. Highly recommended.Idit NathanDecember 18, 2020
These guys have been my first stop for all motion graphics work for a number of brands I work across, and I'm always very happy with the results. Adrian is a pleasure to work with and is always able to take feedback on board to get the best possible end result, even when my schedule is a little too demanding!Scott EmertonApril 18, 2018
We have worked with Uchujin Films in the past and the process was very smooth throughout. Adrian was responsive and flexible even when we came to him with rather short deadlines. He is a very experienced professional with extensive experience across the board, from DP, direction and sound taking to still photograohy and a strong creative drive. I would definitely hire Adrian’s services again and am happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and highly competent video production professional.Samuel CockedeyApril 17, 2018
I've worked with Adrian for over 4 years on all kinds of projects from profile pieces in Tokyo to capturing fast cars on track at Donington Park. He's always got the right gear and the right attitude and gets the job done within my - usually too tight- shooting schedule. Adrian is also a really versatile post production pro whose skills go way beyond a standard edit; he's a talented animator and graphics man who is always on the cutting edge of what's possible and available in the business. Whenever I need guidance on getting what's in my head onto screen I call him and he always picks up.Neil SinerApril 11, 2018
Having worked on assignments over the past two years with Uchujin Films I can heartily recommend Adrian Storey and his film production skills. Thoughtful, creative and professional, Adrian delivers projects with excitement and passion. Be it a short 15 second animation or a feature length documentary, Uchujin Films are a pleasure to work with.Christian “Documentally” PayneApril 10, 2018
