LAURA BACCHUS - THE FACE BEHIND THE LENS
I started in TV as a keen 16 year old runner making tea (and I made A LOT of tea!). Initially I wanted to be a presenter and I was fortunate to present shows for ITV and SKY. But fast forward 20 or so years, I now prefer to be behind the camera as a producer / director specialising in the Health and Beauty industry.
My main experience has come through working on the Features team at ITV’s This Morning programme. From self shooting human interest documentaries to producing glamorous events, there is no subject I haven’t covered in my 15 years on the show. But my passion is beauty and after persuading my boss to let me do beauty features full time on the programme, I was the show’s first ever Beauty Producer/Director, responsible for setting up the department and creating new and innovative weekly beauty content which attracted high ratings for the programme both on screen and across its social media platforms.
From producing and directing make up tutorials with the likes of Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Lisa Eldridge and Victoria Beckham to devising lifestyle formats for Liz Earle, Kourtney Kardashian and Elle MacPherson, during my time at This Morning I was able to earn the trust and form strong, long term relationships with some of the biggest celebrity, health and beauty brands in the UK today.
With a heavy heart, I decided to leave the good ship of This Morning to set up my own business which reflects all aspects of my experience working in television.
Beauty Box Productions offers a range of services tailor made to your brand. From making corporate videos to social media content, I’m able to offer a full video production service whatever your budget.….For brand ambassadors, influencers and anyone keen to get in front of the camera for both TV and online, I offer a training course with myself where I put together a bespoke structure, using my own presenting experience and teaching key skills for being confident in front of the camera.
Whatever your TV or Video production need, I’m more than happy to help and I look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime have a click on my showreel for a taster of some of my work at This Morning
