My name is Adam Clitheroe and I’m a filmmaker based in London, UK.
I started making Super 8 films as a teenager and went on to work in 16mm artists’ film at the London Filmmakers’ Co-op and Lux Centre in the 1990s. This background of vibrant, creative and resourceful filmmaking influences my work today, although these days you’re more likely to find me making documentaries, commercials and promos.
I specialize in shoots that require creative thinking and innovative responses to the subject matter, often in challenging and fast-moving environments. I’ve worked in many genres of films in the last few years – including fashion, architecture, luxury, craftsmanship, music, arts, children, travel, corporate and news.
I work as a director, director of photography, camera operator and editor, or any combination of these to suit a project. I’ve worked across high and low budget productions in all of these roles.
I also work as a photographer, shooting all types of content. My current interest is a contemporary, narrative-based approach to landscape photography.
My independent documentary feature film One Man in the Band was released in 2008 and has had cult success.
If you’d like to talk to me about projects for which I could help you in a directing, DOP, camera or editing role, drop me a line here.
