Welcome to Futurist. The future thinking video production company.
I’m Jon Rist. I’m an Award-winning filmmaker based in West Sussex, working throughout Brighton, Horsham, Chichester, Worthing and London, with a full end to end video production service for creating stylish video content for brands and charities.
I’m fascinated by video’s power to tell stories. Whether it's letting stories speak for your brand or using stories to enhance your charity’s profile, I want to help you get your stories on screen and engage your audience. Stirring their intrigue, emotion and interest.
I grew up on the South Coast and have spent most of my time in and around the area. Eschewing the easier vocational media training route, I graduated with a degree in English from The University of Southampton, which I like to think gives me a wiser perspective on the fundamentals of what makes an engaging video really jump off the page – a great story! I have a background in content marketing for the charity sector.
