Barty Dearden


At some point in my early 20’s, whilst pursuing a love of film and documentary, I was offered a chance to be a runner on a commercial. 20 years on, and still wondering what I’m going to do when I grow up, I’ve worked on over 450 commercials as runner / AD, PM and Producer.

I’ve been lucky enough to produce films across the UK, from a Cornish fishing village to the highlands of Scotland; as well as wonderful locations around the world from New Zealand to South America including the Atacama Desert, the Kibera slum in Nairobi, Tromso in Norway and a medieval castle in Transylvania. And those were some of the easier ones….

I am positive thinking, solution finding and love working with creatives and directors to help bring their visions to life, no matter how complicated or ambitious. My work is one of budgeting, advising, diplomacy and negotiating, and creating something that will make everyone happy.

I also work as a service producer, a stills producer and events producer.
