Camera Monkey Ltd. was setup in 2015 by Greg Holt, on the back of a little equipment rental project called Manchester Camera Hire.


With the ever-changing technology of the camera world, Greg decided to move away from camera hire and instead focus on a specialised video playback service.

As a world traveller, Greg's filming adventures took him across the globe, from the Tundras of Alaska to the searing heats of Ghana and Singapore.


Greg initially began his career back in 2005 as a Locations Assistant but quickly found his calling in the camera department where he was asked to assist the Playback Operator on a commercial in 2008.


Playback was a complicated process back then, utilising down-converters and old HDVR boxes from Panavsion and ARRI.  They were old technology and an absolute nightmare to use, but they were a fantastic baptism of fire for anyone starting their career in commercials.


Since then, Greg has cut his teeth and honed his skills working in a variety of roles from Lighting Cameraman to DIT, but really felt at home as a Playback Operator.


Investing and developing his own self-built QTAKE systems for the past 5 years and more currently, since COVID, he has been mastering the world of live cloud streaming.


Greg has bases in London and Manchester, and currently lives in Berlin with his wife and twin girls.  He is well versed in commercials, dramas, and dailies.
