London based, Video Director Editor Ian Mansfield is a Freelance Filmmaker.


To hone my director skills I went on a two-day training workshop on directing actors taught by the freelance film and TV Director Pete Travis; whose directed the feature films (Dredd 2012, and Vantage Point 2008) and (Omagh 2004 and The Go-Between 2015) for TV. I did this course to get a better insight into the techniques of how to cast, do a read through, block for the camera and the necessary homework a director has to do, to create trust with the actors. The course was held in March last year, at the University of Greenwich and organised by FEST FILM LAB. Participants received a certificate of attendance.


Among my many qualifications I have; I completed a Film & Video Production BA Degree Course, at the University of the Arts in London and was awarded a B.A with 2.1 honors certificate. Before that I, completed the first year only of a BA Media Studies Degree, at the University of the Creative Arts and received a Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE).

Short Film

Vic, a cocky car salesman joins Bianca, a customer for a test drive in a very prestigious car. As Bianca drives the car, she loves how it feels, but can Vic stay the distance, to get a sale. As its producer, director and editor this was a profound challenge to do, but I did it with the support of a great team.  



Short Film

As producer I was solely responsible for all phases of production from planning the shoot, through to post on this very difficult and artistically sensitive exposition of the modern dance movement.
