A bit about me, Olly Tracey, the Director of On Screen Creations. After graduating from the University of Chichester with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Studies (Sports Development), I worked for the Guernsey Sports Commission for three and a half years promoting the variety of sporting opportunities available here in Guernsey. Whilst fulfilling the role of the Creative, Marketing & Administration Officer, I learnt the value of the charitable sector to our community here in Guernsey.
Whilst working for the charity I obtained the necessary marketing tools to reach a worldwide audience with little or no budget. The use of video as a promotional tool came about after promoting the various sporting events that took place locally. Not only did it serve as a great way to reach our target audience but it helped to stimulate the profile of our charity and to this day I still maintain that video is the best form of promotion.
In July 2014 I was offered the opportunity of a lifetime serving as the press attaché for the Guernsey Commonwealth Games Team competing at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. The two and a half week trip let me brush shoulders with the world’s best athletes and using Twitter reached over 19 million people worldwide.
In April 2015 I moved to the design industry to further my video production skills and developed a variety of online marketing campaigns for a range of clients. I served as an account manager for various social networking accounts and produced an abundance of different video productions.
I joined the Guernsey FC family later in the year, as I began producing video summaries of their 2014/2015 competitive season for their annual End of Season awards. In July I began producing the match day highlights for every home and away game played within the Ryman Isthmian League Division 1 South. To date I travel with them to every game, as they endeavour to gain promotion by the end of the season. I continue to drive the video coverage of the club online and am currently attempting to revive the live streaming of matches using my bespoke broadcasting platform.
In October I went solo and served as a freelance video producer, servicing a number of clients’ needs that I had met along my 4 year journey. In December 2015 I launched On Screen Creations, with a view to providing a unique Video Production Service and Digital Marketing Suite of services to the Guernsey community. In January 2023 I took the decision to run the business full time to meet the increased demand for our services. Our specialism at the moment is in Live Video Production environments and online hosting of video content.
