February 2023 at Bede Sunderland College
Who was it with?
Lee Axon who is the owner of Digifin.
information about the person/company
Lee told us about how he started his career just by filming on a iPhone 11. He films weddings, car
promotional videos and any content. He uses cameras, drones and Premier pro to create his work.
He claims he charges an hourly rate which is reasonable, and he does quick turn arounds no
matter how much content there is.
what do they do?
At first, he went to different places such as Restaurants, fish and chip shops to ask them if he
could film videos free of charge. He eventually went into Aston Martin and asked if he could do
the same. Now he has his own busy filming a variety of content for big name companies and
ordinary people who ask for his service.
What is their history in the industry?
He has been doing his business for a while after many careers. After using an iPhone 11 for 2 years
he progressed to a camera and then a drone and has been creating amazing content since then.

What did I learn?
I have learned that you don’t need fancy equipment to create something amazing by videography
and photography. Also, if want to do something in life you should go an do it as you will never
know if you can create something amazing without trying. Also, confidence and belief is what he
used to video for big companies and if you believe that you can do it than it will happen.
more about the industry?
I have learnt that to create something it does not mean that you need fancy equipment. All you
need is something to film with and to edit with. I have also learnt that in media you don’t just
need to focus on one production you can focus on many but need to make sure that you can meet
the deadlines in time and to create high quality videos.
potential careers in media (facilities and opportunities) ?
I have realised that there are many different opportunities in media, and it does not mean that
that you must work with a company. You can also be self-employed and either work by your self
or employ others. Either way you can work with different companies and create content that can
fit their brand. You can also create content that you like to create whether this is personal or for
your company. I have learnt that the possibilities are endless in media.
Has it helped you with your current projects?
I have realised that trial and error can be a good idea to include in projects for media, as using
different techniques, editing and shooting styles can improve a video so much more than I would
have thought. I have also learnt that getting out of my comfort zone is important for filming
content as I would be able to create something amazing and would be so proud of the final
