Haider Romero Perez
Pocket owes much of its creative verve to Haider’s drive towards making each and every project the best it can be.
He’s passionate about all things production, and if you look carefully, you can see him calculating lighting and camera setups behind his eyes.
What do you do in your role?
I create all things moving whilst getting the chance to play with all sorts of cameras, lenses and lighting equipment – plus I know a fair bit of editing too.
What do you actually do?
I’ve made it my mission to try and get all of the company profits spent on more kit for me to play with. It works only half the time.
What do your team think you do?
Probably that I watch YouTube all day in the office, which to be honest I do a fair amount of, but usually it’s content I can benefit from and implement into my on-set production skills.
Most embarrassing story?
In a massive Clementine farm in the South East of Spain near Seville, after an entire day of filming, picking and eating Clementines, I turned around to the owner and said “These oranges are the best I’ve ever had!” I didn’t think about how passively offensive this must have been to him at the time, but it does give me a good laugh every time I recall it – thankfully it makes the client chuckle every time too!
