An Ordinary Boy

Jordan Wylie



Ashley Yarwood


Jordan contacted¬† Standby Productions, looking for a promotional film to be created around his story. The film was required as part of a series of workshops for military service leavers and also as an introduction for Jordan’s speaking engagements, ahead of his forthcoming book tour throughout the year.


Working with Jordan to craft the film’s narrative, it was decided that the film would have both a focus on his past growing up in Blackpool, as well as his time serving in the military and his life beyond that working in the Maritime security sector. The film needed to have an organic flow so that we could quickly but effectively tell Jordan’s life’s story over the course of three minutes, without passing over important details.


Working quickly but effectively, Standby created a fun and collaborative environment on set, shooting cinematic footage that complimented and contextualised Jordan’s story. Filmed across three locations over the course of a day’s shoot, we worked in the edit to tell the narrative through different “phases” of the film, led and informed by key shifts in the soundtrack.

“Perfect! It was a great pleasure to work with you all the team and I will certainly recommend you guys to others.”
