Freelance Videographer Halifax Nova Scotia


Julian Parkinson is a freelance videographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Specializing in corporate and commercial content with 20+ years of international experience.

I film high quality celebrity and corporate interviews on the Canon C500 mkii and Canon C70 with full interview lighting and audio kit. Fast turn arounds are standard. Footage can be sent via WeTransfer (if feasible) or on Hard Drive via FedEx, whichever works for your schedule or budget.

If you’re looking for a reliable cinematographer with great gear, knowledge and a strong work ethic, I’m here to help. I work with a full time production assistant for an efficient and professional workflow. We don’t leave anything to chance.

Need a 2 camera shoot? I can also help with that.

We are fully vaccinated and practising all measures to work safely.

Every interview shoot brings it’s own set of challenges. Sometimes we only have an interviewee for a tiny window of time so we need to be set up and 100% ready for when they’re ready. Other times we have 4 or 5 set times throughout the day. Every day is different and we like that.
