What Our Clients Say
Betsy Kelly - Freelance Agency Producer
I had the pleasure of working with Ali Lindsay most recently on a Garnier film we shot with Fearne Cotton. Ali demonstrated a complete understanding of client and Agency needs amongst her many abilities as Head of Sales/EP, Ali worked hard to find a resolution to our production and budget demands. Ali brought together a Director and Stills Photographer neither of whom were on the Production Company Roster and both with a huge amount of the exact experience to make the whole production process a very successful and happy experience.
Ali is extremely professional and has thorough knowledge of the whole production process and a passion and commitment to producing a great film.
I enjoyed working with her because she is collaborative and manages to maintain the respect of Agency and Client and a problem solver.
I have worked for many years as a TV Producer for many Advertising Agencies and as a Head of TV, and Ali's skills, knowledge and amazing personality makes her standout amongst the many Heads of Sales/EP's I have worked with.
In my professional and personal opinion, I would recommend her as someone who will add value to any company within the Creative industries.
Ali worked part time as a freelance consultant for Greatcoat Films from October 2019 until March 2020 helping us to take an overview and develop the roster of talent to be suitable for representation to her london advertising agency contacts.
Her experience and recognised ability to spot talent and nurture them in the TV commercial world saw her introduce us to award winning directors photographers and screen writers whilst helping us strategise by aligning creative talent to relevant brands and overseeing and organising press features to help elevate our up and coming roster of talent to industry peers.
I would happily recommend Ali, her genuine enthusiasm and experience would add value to any creative production company.
Charlie Dodd, Production Director BBH London:
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ali for a number of years and in that time I have always found her to be both passionate about the directing talent she represents and creatively on brief with the options she presents. She has a personable, caring nature and a track record in sourcing and developing directors, breaking them into the commercials arena. Her experience and established contacts allows her to put forward creative production solutions for us to utilise helping our clients obtain the best standards and practices whilst working alongside exciting creative talent. But above all she cares and is a joy to talk to and work with. She is a total star.
For the last year I have had the advantage of Ali
Lindsay's knowledgeable Director recommendations.
Unlike many, Ali doesn't just put forward the same old suggestions. Neither did she give up or
show the impatience she surely must have felt when our dates moved for the third or fourth
time, starting the process all over again.
When presenting a director's work Ali is able to answer any questions fully and anecdotally. She is a good judge of the category of work which
may interest different Agencies, so does not arrive with an array of work which is inappropriate to your needs.

Colin Byrne – Creative Director London (Previously CD at VCCP).
Ali’s not only lovely, versatile and brilliant but she works harder than almost anyone I’ve met. She has an acute knack of knowing just the right director/animator for any given job and always comes through with the goods, time after time. She also has a sharp eye for emerging talent and that’s why I make Ali my first port of call when looking for production partners.
Katherine Maidment – Senior Freelance TV Producer, whilst at M&C Saatchi:
Ali has a real understanding of the creative and business sides of production and ably helps guide the production process from start to finish. She is helpful, responsive and her experience dealing with directors and agencies is always evident in the good work she does. Additionally, Ali is a really lovely person! She is an absolute pleasure to work with.
Matt Craigie Atherton – Head of Integrated Production Mother previously whilst at Adam & Eve DDB:
Here at adam&eve/DDB we’ve always enjoyed working with Ali and especially appreciate her experience and her positive attitude. We’re looking forward to seeing where she goes next so we can continue working with Ali in the not too distant future!
