" I started Home Run Films in 2016 after noticing in several job assignments that companies’ core values often talked about ‘Putting our customers first’ - there was never any mention of employees… Shouldn’t both be valued as much as the other?
I began to wonder how that made them feel, in terms of being valued by their business. Surely a motivated and engaged employee, first and foremost, made for a happy customer too?
Having originally trained as an actor at LAMDA and then combining that skillset with work as a Communications Manager and Learning & Development practitioner for many large corporates, I have seen first-hand how audiences respond to “Engagement”. With experience of filmmaking on both sides of the lens, I know the power that film has to captivate an audience and tell a story in a memorable way.
We have consistently found that the best engagement and moments of self-reflection come from using a story and/or characters as a talking point. With film, the advantage is that it’s active, people can relate to the character or situation, and the emotional investment made is deeper and therefore lasts longer. Empathy through story is one of our guiding principles.
Home Run Films brings together a group of like-minded collaborators from disciplines in filmmaking, theatre and business so we put ourselves in you and your audience's shoes and take the time and effort to understand your needs to ensure we deliver the right type of content tailored for your company’s culture, business objectives and audience's desires.
We enjoy nothing more than being set a challenge to create a film for our clients in a unique and unforgettable way "

“Home Run Films helped us during the launch of our Company Core Values earlier this year by creating a fun, memorable video as a visual reminder with a clear message for our employees. We will definitely work with them again in the future. Very professional with a great understanding of our business and people needs.”
Amanda Coombs - HR Manager, BOAL UK
“Home Run Films created a video which beautifully captured the essence of our creative services. They make filming and editing choices thoughtfully and seemingly effortlessly, and just made the unknown world of video really easy for us as a customer. Our actor team all said how good it felt to work with Stewart – calm, focused, efficient, skilfull. I’m sure that as a successful actor himself, he has a 6th sense for the creative filming process.
My lasting takeaway is ‘Why didn’t I do this years ago!’ ”
Andy Taylor - Managing Director, People Deliver Projects
“Having Home Run Films involved in a recent training event meant that we were able to offer the client a full and professional programme. Stewart and I worked closely together to ensure that the training video not only hit the right learning points but was memorable, unique and fun; the client was over the moon with the final result. The whole process ran smoothly from the initial ideas going down through to the final edit and I know we've found a fantastic partner for any similar projects in the future.”
