Scott Shellis is a Birmingham videographer and filmmaker. He was born and raised in the industrial heart of England. At sixteen Scott attended art college, where he specialised in photography and later in film. In those days the format still used for this medium was 35mm film for still photos and 8mm tape for video.
Despite the shortcomings of 8mm video tape, Scott was able to produce cinematic clips and short films which captured the atmosphere and resonance of the late nineties. This was achieved using just instinctive framing and by bringing Scott's own idiosyncratic style and atmosphere to projects.
Also during this time, Scott spent much time in the darkroom developing 35mm stills and later, honing his video and filmmaking skills. Scott became obsessed with art of lighting and cinematography and this has inspired him to this day.
Scott Shellis Films provide not just a filmmaking service, but a chance to capture beautiful moments with gorgeous moving image using a combination of modern and vintage equipment. No expense is spared to create the most stunning and cinematic visuals possible.

"Thank you so much Scott for transforming my very long wedding video into an up to date, modern looking one which captures all the highlights of the day perfectly. It is the perfect length for me to post it on social media to show all my lovely family and friends.
I really thought it would be impossible to edit and transform my slightly out-of-date styled video, filmed by a different videographer some years ago, into a version which is much more elegant and modern. It turned out even better than I anticipated and captured all the important moments.
Really professional and just a wonderful service. I would definitely recommend you to people looking for someone to capture their special day. So grateful for all your help."
