I have a group of trusted camera operators and animators that I work with regularly when the project requires it but I always work on every project myself first and foremost.
I also work in a freelance capacity as either a director, camera operator or video editor, and often all three.

I have a group of trusted camera operators and animators that I work with regularly when the project requires it. I also work in a freelance capacity as either a director, camera operator or video editor, and often all three.
(editor / motion graphics / camera op) I initially worked as the video editor on the PE ‘Spring Menu’ video. I’ve have now subsequently worked on many other videos for them, shooting and editing, including the ‘new handheld device’ training video and the ‘Summer Menu’.
(director / editor) – I worked with a branding agency (Thinking Room) to produce some video / animation content about specific products – for example a Percy Pig animation and talking heads detailing the customer perception of product branding and its capacity for expansion.
director / editor / motion graphics / camera op) – ‘Summer Science Experiments’ for a production company (90 Seconds). From the brief ‘x3 kids summer experiments’, I researched children’s science experiments that can be done at home with household items, and created x3 ‘top down -how to’ videos for a social media campaign. The client was extremely happy with the videos and the online engagement.

I was given additional briefs whilst we were travelling and was able to organise and shoot a ‘day in the life’ video, shooting on the streets, in peoples homes and organising groups of people doing activities etc after the prearranged day of shooting
