For a taste of the style of visuals and music videos I create, have a watch of my Spring 2017 Showreel:

I’ve had the pleasure of working with over 40 different clients from all over the world, both locally and remotely, on a huge range of projects from psychedelic visuals for festivals, going behind-the-scenes at photoshoots and gigs, documenting exhibition builds and directing crowd funding campaigns.

Here’s what some of them have to say:

In short, Max Palmer is a solid professional and a delight to work with. One may also describe him as: Brilliant. Talented. Patient. Creative. Organized. Skilled. Inspired. Prolific.

Palmer delivered more than he promised, far more than he was compensated for, and what he gave us back was exactly what we needed. He listened to our desires, shot what he could under some less than optimum conditions, and the output blew us away.

It is with pleasure and absolute conviction that I heartily recommend Mr. Palmer. His technical talents and artistic eye would be a boon to any project he works on.

Salman A. NensiInternational Communications Manager, Nensi Co.

Max has worked on multiple album projects for us including Etherwood, Fred V & Grafix and Keeno. For Etherwood's debut album he created a cohesive video campaign for every track from the album, which undeniably contributed towards the great success of the release.

His ideas have always been original and the work has always been completed on time. All the videos submitted have been of a great quality and can be viewed on our Youtube channel.

We will continue to use Max for future projects, and are happy to recommend his services.

Romy HarberDigital Manager, Hospital Records

For 9 months, Max worked with my team and I at, Lotus Lodge in Siem Reap Cambodia. We worked together in creating beautifully shot tourism videos for our guests to enjoy.

Max has a great understanding of cinematography and his editing is remarkable. It would be my pleasure to again work with Max in creating beautiful videos.

Mitch St.PierreManager, Lotus Lodge, Cambodia

Max provided us not only with a first class video to enable us to share our work in providing arts therapies to countries recovering from genocide with the international community, but he also provides a true passion and commitment to his work.

Highly recommended.

Tori GreenFounder, Hand in HeART Project / Creator, Sok San Street Festival, Cambodia

Max was an inspirational cat to work with. He is hugely positive, versatile and reactive. Every idea was possible, nothing was longed out or stressful. The results he got from our obscenely low budget set-up are amazing. Since shooting the video I have had meetings with film lecturers and producers and they have balked at the revelation that our video was shot on a total shoe string.

Max Palmer, brilliant film maker and jolly good egg.

Max Palmer Visuals is a life saver.

My company had a last minute donation of a huge LED screen for our fundraising gala and quickly needed a visual loop that would act as a focal point for the entire event. I had a very specific wish list for an animated loop to fit our theme and could not find what I was looking for anywhere. A colleague recommended Max but I was nervous; he was all the way over in New Zealand and I was in Toronto and this was a rush job. I need not have worried.

Max was a pleasure to work with, professional, lightning fast and the results were even better than I could have hoped for. He listened closely to what I was asking for and tweaked the loop until he had created in reality what had only been a dream in my mind. The loop set the mood for the whole event and twinkled in the background enhancing what was taking place on stage rather than overpowering it. It was perfect and I can’t thank Max enough.

I recommend him highly and given the opportunity would absolutely love to work with him again.

Patti McCabeEvents Manager, Toronto Wildlife Centre

Max is an innovative, imaginative and highly talented videographer, and I would have no doubt in recommending him to work on any project.

During our end of year degree show in 2013, Max created a series of original, high quality ‘behind the scenes’ videos to provide an insight into how the exhibition was managed and organised. He produced some outstanding work that was both informative and entertaining, and is still used within our marketing and teaching materials today.

Andrew J KitchenhamCreative Technology Lecturer, Bournemouth University

I got Max Palmer to do some visuals for a club night I promoted in the Bournemouth area called Tropics. I gave Max a simple brief to work with and was over the moon with the result, which was a stunning ten minute visual loop that dramatically contributed to the vibe of the night. Furthermore the work was completed before the deadline.

Will be using Max again in the near future for sure.

Toby KingPromoter & Event Organiser

Max produced a number of videos for me. The results were better than I could have imagined and produced a lot of interest in me as an artist.

Max is very creative, a great collaborator - always happy to hear my suggestions - professional and technically excellent. The videos we worked on were successful and great fun to make.

I would highly recommend a chat with Max to anyone considering a video project.

Michael Cohen"The Fabulous Micky C"

I have been working with Max for roughly 5 years and best friends with him for at least 10. Together we have constructed art that I would consider to be some of my greatest achievements.

Max's attitude towards creativity, his eye for composition and his enthusiasm is like nobody I have ever met and am ever likely to meet. If you're lucky enough to work with him, you're very lucky indeed.

I can not recommend him enough.

Rory WannertonRapper / Actor

It was great to work with Max on my music video. His experience and skill meant that everything went very smoothly. He took my ideas and points on board instantly, which showed in the first draft, as well as bringing his own ideas to the table which worked very well.

Even though we were on different sides of the world, Max completed the video in a couple of days. The result was everything I could have asked for and more. Extremely happy with how it turned out!

I would recommend him to anyone out there.

KonciseMusic Producer

Very professional and wonderful to work with, brings fun and enthusiasm into every second! I am thrilled how the video came out, such a creative soul.

Would highly recommend Max for any of your visual needs!

What happens when you hire me:

Most of my previous client work has been completed without actually meeting face-to-face. Excellent communication is key, and I make sure that we’re on the same wavelength before we get going, so that expectations are always met.

This is a typical workflow:

Ideas

The first stage is always to talk! This is the seed of the project – we need to see how we can make it grow exactly the way you want it to.

We’ll discuss the ideas you have for your video(s), how you want the project to convey your brand, what different deliverables you need, your budget, and how we can make the final product as best as it can be.

Wheels in Motion

Wehay! So we’re off! This is the part of the project where we make things happen, and start actually creating some video. Depending on the type of project, this can either involve planning the shoots and filming, and/or sourcing & creating the footage and imagery we’ll be using.

Editing & Feedback

During the editing process, I will keep you in the loop with previews of how your video’s progressing.

I’ll send you various previews throughout, so you can check that your video is growing exactly how you envisioned. These are your chances to make changes, and to help steer the direction of the rest of the video. I am a perfectionist myself, so even if you want a cut to happen a beat earlier, it’s no problem.

Final Draft

Several previews later we will reach the final stages. This will be when the finishing touches are made (colour grading, audio mixing etc.) and for you to make sure that you’re 100% happy with it before it goes through the final render.

Project Complete!

Woo-hoo! I deliver you the final files, everyone’s happy, we all hi-5 and head to the pub.

So, get in touch at max@maxpalmervisuals.com, and let’s create something beautiful together.

It’s the power of word-of-mouth that allows me to do what I love for a living, so go on:
