Max and Lomokev geek out in Brighton

Our Max

Kindredhq wouldn’t happen without the generosity and talent of our community. We wanted to introduce you to Max Mallen, our fabulous freelance film maker and the creative brains behind the short films on the site. Half Irish half French, he’s lived just about everywhere, (Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Poland, and Tahiti, I could go on). His degree is in Film and Video, from the University of the Creative Arts, in Farnham with an MA in Screen Directing from St Martins.  He’s dreaming of making feature films and we’re so lucky that he’s honing his skills with us! Oh. And he is obsessed with food. The healthy sort. He eats a lot of brown rice and no ‘bad’ white carbs. He’s recently set himself up on Facebook at www.facebook.com/frontrowpicturehouse so do check him out and give him a Like.

Who is Alex Butler

Hello, I'm Alex Butler and I founded the KindredHQ community and blog back in 2011 after I re-started a freelance career. I LOVE freelancing and I wouldn't swop the freedom, control and joy of working for myself for anything. But I realised how much I missed the company and energy of other people - of having a team around me. So, I got a few people together one day with our laptops, a jar of coffee and some jelly babies and we sat and worked together one afternoon. We've been doing that every week in London, UK since then! I am still 100% freelance and I like to share the everyday highs and lows of being a freelancer here on the blog.
