Nik Farah, Journalist and Videographer
Nik is Keep Your Fork’s video journalist with over a decade of experience as a features writer, reporter and videographer. She has a passion for 'finding the story' and capturing it, whether with words or through the lens of her camera. Her work has appeared in newspapers and magazines across the region and she has turned her hand to every style; from hard news and crime, to entertainment and ad-features, and regularly puts pen to paper as a columnist and family blogger. She considers her camera her 'passport to adventure' as - alongside a wealth of corporate and wedding work - it's taken her to afternoon tea with the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, earned her a 'Dancing on Ice' lesson with some familiar faces, allowed her to go behind the scenes of just about every interesting business, job or hobby you can imagine - and even earned her an 'ayyyy' from The Fonz!
Nik is incredibly effective at establishing relationships at all levels and has a wide-range of local clients and contacts. Human interest is her speciality and there's nothing she enjoys more than drawing out what makes somebody or something interesting and telling their story.
Nothing engages with your customers the way video does.
If a picture paints a thousand words...one minute of video can be equated to millions!
A two-minute corporate video allows you to put your messages and services forward in a memorable, and succinct, way. It gives your customers the unique opportunity to meet and engage with the people behind the product, and discover exactly what your company can do for them, without having to wade through a mountain of information. Whether a welcome video on your website, a service update via email, or a product video for social media, our videos can help you say what you need to say - clearly.
I've been creating videos for the past ten years, working with individuals and businesses, big and small, helping them to put their best foot forward. In addition to working with clients to create professional videos, I also offer guidance sessions on how to create your own social media 'shorties' - usually shot using your own iPhone - advising on everything from ideas and camera angles, to what shots you'll need, and quick editing.
My service includes filming using professional video cameras and microphones, interviewing and scriptwriting-assistance, and editing of the final product, including one round of amends. The final video is then sent to you as a digital file.
Choose video, and put your best foot forward.
