Two creative pupils at Oakham School are delighted to have launched their own video production company.

Charlie Schanschieff and Will Greenless, both 15, are set to work on producing more videos for their portfolio and digital course at school through their new venture Limitless Productions.

The boys were inspired to set up their company following a talk at the school from guest speaker Miles Latham from Affixius productions.

Charlie said: “I’ve got a really creative side; for video, photography and audio.

“I definitely want to have a career in film and I’ve been inspired to build up a portfolio thanks to a talk given to us by Miles.”

One of the first films they worked on together was a video about their boarding house, Chapmans, which impressed housemaster Daniele Bonanno, while Charlie recently had success producing a video for a leading nappy brand, Bambino 

The company was delighted with how professional it was and has chosen to launch it as part of its marketing efforts.

As well as being showcased at a baby tradeshow in Germany and on its website, it has since been rolled out for use on other retailer websites including the Asda Facebook page, where it was ‘liked’ by more than 5,000 people.
