Newshot Productions was founded by Paul Russell, a West Central Scotland based cameraman and video editor. 


Paul has 20 years professional experience gained since leaving Glasgow College of Building & Printing with the course prize in Television Operations and Production (HND).  Paul also holds a degree from Caledonian University with Communication & Mass Media as the main study area.

Before going freelance in Summer 2014 Paul worked for Media Scotland / Trinity Mirror Group producing event VTs, corporate films, national television adverts (Daily Mirror, The People, Daily Record, Sunday Mail) and external client video work.

Newshot Productions now shoots in 4K but can also provide 1080HD rushes and edits.


Paul is comfortable on many types of camera from 1/3rd type to ENG format, if there is a particular format you wish to hire in.


Editing is performed on Adobe Premiere, with graphics and captions created in Photoshop and After Effects.


Paul is experienced with location and studio recording and has a good knowledge of various lighting and sound recording gear.

Newshot Productions takes it's name from a local beauty spot near Paul's home.  If he's not behind a camera or in front of a computer Paul will probably be out a walk with his wife Kerry, and his wee doggy Charlie at Newshot Island.
