About Me


Hello! I’m Frank Souter, the founder of Frankly Creative Films. I have over ten years experience in video editing, cinematography and motion graphics.

My journey began at a Melbourne based production house, where I was trained initially as a video editor. My eagerness to learn led to my rapid progression in the company, eventually finding myself learning new talents such as colour grading, sound design and motion graphics.

The time finally came when I was asked to pick up a camera. At first I was nervous but as it turned out, my knowledge of editing had trained me perfectly for capturing well constructed and intentional footage that would seamlessly come together in post production. The ever evolving edit in my head, will always be one step ahead of the record button. Before I knew it myself, what I was creating was a one stop shop within the growing production house.

Now here I am, in the form of Frankly Creative Films, specialising in all things video. Frankly’s clients describe me as easy going, reliable and professional. Whether it’s with camera in hand, or in the edit suite.

There is nothing more rewarding than exceeding my clients expectations, by building stories and finding creative solutions for difficult projects – that’s what I love to do.

Because Frankly, every frame counts.

Why Work With Me


More for you: Being a one man band, I don’t have all the overheads that a larger company may have. This allows me to be flexible and work efficiently with my time. At the end of the day, this means quicker turn around and more money in your pocket.

Size doesn’t matter: From small business to larger than life. Frankly Creative Films is with you. While I manage and produce smaller projects myself, larger projects can require more hands on deck. Lucky for you, I have established a network with talented people all across Australia. No matter where your project is happening, my team and I can be there.

It’s who you know: With Frankly Creative Films, you have access to a range of specialised crew and talent. Over the years I have collaborated with a lot of different people and maintained strong relationships with those individuals who I believe fit the Frankly mould – reliability, quality of work and value for money. From drone pilots to make up artists, I have found the best so you don’t have to.
