    About me

    Hello, I am Lighting-camera operator & on-line editor of broadcast, corporate, commercial and special-event video content. I have four years of diverse TV/film and new-media experience, with six years of completed and accredited academic qualifications and special training schemes. Please see my website for details and work examples:

    telegothika.wixsite.com/telegothika

    Broadcasters and companies worked for include BBC Sport, Olympic Broadcast Service, Laser Tools Racing, Jopia Productions and the Co-Operative Film Society. Production knowledge includes studio, OB, feature film, sports and corporate workflows & technology.

    I am available for hire (with professional HD and 4K kit) primarily for camera operation, focus pulling and editing roles. I have also have been 2nd AD on numerous TV sport, feature and music video productions. Production design, live-event management and hospitality planning are further roles which I have useful and unique experience in, which comes in handy often especially on special event/wedding coverage and when providing green-room comforts to talent.

    My base is in the West Midlands, with personal accommodation in London. I travel frequently and I own my own transport. This website gives a flavour of my professional video adventures and information on what I can offer. Please explore this site, see my CV below, fire me a message or connect with me on Facebook and Youtube.
