Oliver has over seven years experience as a visual researcher and treatment writer/designer for TVC's, mood films, documentaries and pitch decks/director's treatments.

As well as sourcing footage, Oliver also has extensive experience licensing content from large stock libraries to independent content creators, with an increasing focus on UGC content.
