Simon J Knight

DP / Director @ Mediahound Films



I have been involved in media production since 1991. Beginning with audio recording and presentation at BBC Radio Devon in Exeter, I presented and produced news and current affairs, sports, music and popular culture programmes. A move to BBC Pebble Mill in Birmingham saw my skill set extend to camera operating, lighting and floor management for "Good Morning with Anne & Nick" "Top Gear" and "Telly Addicts."  Noel Edmunds discovered my latent talent for mime acting and I diversified for 18 months with "Noel's House Party" as a popular pink and yellow character!


Despite a 1993 Christmas No.1 Hit single (!) I left fame behind and traveled the world extensively with a camera, rekindling my love of the visual medium. After winning a contract to produce training and promotional films for easyJet Airlines

 I created MediaHound Films, an independent film production company. Fully aware of the potential of 4K UHD, I bought into the RED camera technology and now offer drama, music video and corporate filming at this highest standard of visual media production.


I have DP'd on  "Survival"  "Chosen"  "Crust Asian"  and " Amerlie", all short films. I helped launch "Drowning Pegasus" with studio and location music videos. I am currently DP on the comedy horror "Silver Bullet" co-produced with Silver Lining Productions and I recently returned from India shooting a documentary on spiritual healing. Principal photography on "The Establishment - Division 9" sizzle reel begins in August where I am Directing. I also have corporate aviation contracts with easyJet, Air Tanker and the Civil Aviation Authority.

Mediahound Films has a core facility of camera, sound and lighting equipment available to you, with either myself acting as camera operator/DP or purely as advisor.


We also have access to a wider production field including and not limited to, script creation, Exec & Line Producers, 1st/2nd ADs, 1st/2nd ACs, boom operators/location sound engineers Hair & Makeup artists and several casting agents as close associates.
