More About Me - Michelle Savage

I am a freelance filmmaker who specializes in making videos for voluntary organizations. I make promotional videos, documentaries and video records of events. My films are dynamic, colourful and clear.

I have been working freelance for just over a year and business is going well - I've made videos for lots of local charities. To find out more about my work, visit my website shelly telly

A key factor in my success has been the support of the local microcredit project Full Circle. I had some fabulous training where I learnt about pricing and costing, tax and keeping accounts, marketing and customer care.

Following the course, I joined a lending circle with three other women. We meet together regularly to talk about our businesses and give one another feedback and support. We can apply for a loan from Full Circle after we have drawn up a business plan and got the approval of the other women in the circle.

My circle is called Torque. The other women are Charlotte Scott, an artist, Sal Pittman, a costumier and Eve Pandolfi, a textile designer.
