Flame Lily Films was founded in 2020 by Anne and Leigh after a 5-year partnership directing and producing a series of short films.
Initially, the team produced films for medical education, drawing on Anne’s experience as a doctor and educator and Leigh’s extensive filmmaking career. After a commission from the NHS, Anne and Leigh branched out into a series of six promotional films to boost recruitment into Anne’s specialty of general practice. The films won acclaim and are still in use in North West England after receiving thousands of views on social media.
In 2019, the team were commissioned to make two marketing films by a malt barley producer in Yorkshire and also made a couple of shorter promotional films for small organisations. Leigh continued to make documentaries for a number of celebrated musicians and promotional films for emerging musical talent. Anne developed her own filming and photographic skills through further study as part of a Postgraduate Diploma in Photography studied at UCLAN, where she achieved a Distinction.
As a partnership, Anne and Leigh are able to offer a tailored and personalised service to clients, drawing on their combined experience and skills. During Leigh’s career, he has also built up an established network of additional professionals and media should it be required.
