Makinov began as an alias for then Graphic Designer Jonny Clooney back in 2005.
At that time as part of an art collective, Jonny would produce videos following the events of the groups art exhibitions that took place around the UK. During this time video became a far more consuming obsession than graphic design had previously proven to be.
It was in 2008 and a move to Bristol that saw a switch from graphic design to video full time. Working with companies including Aardman Animations and the BBC in their Natural History Department was an excellent enviroment to learn more about the craft and the industry.
Since then Jonny has gone on to work on projects for Samsung, Canon, Mazda, Aptimil, Cineworld, British Chambers of Commerce, The Grand Appeal, Bristol Children’s Hospital and more.
Makinov Video now has a network of collaborators including social media managers, photographers, illustrators, animators and more meaning the right team can be brought together for any project.
Covering anything from promotional videos and educational films to music videos and features, often incorporating a mix of motion graphics and animation, we’re able to take on a wide range of varied projects.
