Katie Greenhalf Behind The Lens

Quietly producing some of the best corporate videos in the UK today is This Film, a film production and filmmaking company based in the beautifully artistic and entrepreneurial North Yorkshire town of Harrogate.

Katie Greenhalf, owner of This Film has been a renowned film producer for over 20 years, with a client list that reads like a who’s who of the UK’s top businesses and world-famous household names.

Somewhat under the radar, This Film doesn’t boast about client work or exciting projects, even though Katie has filmed the likes of arguably the most famous British author of all time J.K.Rowling, she makes films on a monthly basis with top FTSE100 companies, Rudding Park Hotel voted a top 10 hotel in the country by TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2018, the NHS, the Police and one of the most prolific British Chefs of this decade, Tom Kerridge to name just a few.

Katie Greenhalf, owner of This Film says; “I’ve always been a film maker, piecing together the jigsaw of footage is always the most exciting time - seeing my ideas come alive on screen is the best part. I have been extremely lucky to always have interesting clients to work with and a great team behind me. No two days are the same, one minute I’m suited and booted in the offices of a major FTSE100 client, the next day I’m backstage at a festival or wearing a hardhat and steel toe-cap boots around a factory. I’ve always just got on with it, and I’ve never really thought about being a woman in a fairly male dominated industry, but I must admit that I do get excited when I hear of another woman running a film production company because we’re still a bit of a rare breed. It makes me so happy that roles like mine, predominantly seen as male jobs, are being taken more and more by women - as they should! I’m still loving what I do 20 years later, however it’s not always plain sailing.”

Based in Harrogate with her family, Katie has first hand experience of the challenge of running a business and a very busy home life.

Katie goes on to say; “Film making is a very time consuming process, the filming is roughly a third, maybe even only a quarter of the process! Because the edit is where my passion lies, it’s not unusual at all for me to keep editing overnight once the kids are in bed, luckily we are only a short walking distance for the sometimes bleary eyed school drop off in the morning!”

With as many as 16 projects on the go at any time, the kids sometimes have to help out and come along. My husband works away a lot so the kids get to be roadies and sometimes have cameo appearances. My 12 year old is getting quite handy with a camera now, which could be very useful in a few years if the business continues to grow like it has done over the last few.

Everyone is a film maker nowadays so it can be hard to stand out, but I know that people will continue to want quality video for their businesses in the same way they want quality design and photography. I appreciate that watching a video is like looking into the eyes of your business. I’m Harrogate based and have worked with mega stars, local stars, big business, independent business, and little start-ups. Anything is possible if you train hard, work hard and push for success. Never mind being a woman in a man’s world, I’m a filmmaker in a world filled with YouTube, Insta Stories, and FB where everyone can make a film – but only a few manage to do it properly!”

Katie rebranded her business to This Film recently, where she continues to work as a film producer and filmmaker for clients including; Dartington Crystal, Rudding Park Hotel & Spa, Neom Organics London, The Great British Exchange Ltd, Harrogate Borough Council, Harrogate Convention Centre and many more.

Katie Greenhalf is the owner of This Film, a creative and corporate video production company based in the heart of North Yorkshire, Harrogate.
