    About me

    Film & Video Production:

    Camera: I am trained on a variety of cameras ranging from low to high end. I have experience using a range of DSLR’s from Canon 5 and 7D, multipurpose cameras like the Sony PXW – FS7 and high speed cameras such as the Phantom Mini. I have most recently been shooting with the ‘4K Black Magic Cinema Camera’ with full accessories set up with additions such as SDI – HDMI external monitoring, ‘Teradek’ wireless transmitters and remote follow focus. From this I am able to shoot onto different digital formats such as Mini DV Tape, SD Cards and SSD Cards using different video formats and compressions to the productions advantage from Standard Definition 4:3 Video on MiniDV Tape to 4K Raw on SSD. I also have experience using the ‘DJI Ronin-M ‘gimbal stabilizer on various productions.

    Lighting: From working as a Director of Photography on a number of productions I am able to create lighting compositions for Film and Television. Understanding the camera and how light exposure effects it, I have created many different lighting set ups for numerous floor plans using Kinoflow, TechPro, Lupolux and more, as well as using colour gels to colour and balance different scenes and gobos to create specific lighting effects.

    Editing: I am an accomplished editor on Sony Vegas Pro and Adobe Premier Pro. I have a good understanding of post-production workflows to professionally and effectively deliver edits using a range of post-production software. I am currently learning Adobe After-Effects and Davinci Resolve to expand my skills in the post-production field.

    Sound: I am trained in using various sound capture equipment with a range of microphones, recorders and mixers. I also have the ability to edit/post-produce sound for video on Adobe Audition.

    Media & ICT:

    Social Media Marketing: I have experience in social media marketing from creating social media pages and content for my own production company to utilising social media platforms to showcase and generate work for new clients. This then developed into marketing the independent client’s promotions further after the initial videos inception. Based on the analytics received additional platform appropriate videos and images were then created.

    Graphics Design: Throughout my career I have designed graphics for projects and companies creating film posters, logos, and various other forms of digital visual content. I am fluent in ‘Adobe Fireworks & Photoshop’ and continue to develop skills in the medium.

    IT: I am computer literate and enjoy building and constructing my own work stations. I know how to install hardware and software within units and regularly build and update my own edit stations. I am competent using a range of computer programmes including Microsoft Word and Excel, as well as graphic design software such as Adobe Fireworks and Adobe Photoshop. I also have knowledge in web design and HTML scripting using Adobe Dreamweaver.

    Workplace and Professionalism:

    Driving: I hold a clean driving licence with no points or convictions since my pass date in June 2008. I am able to and have experience in driving a range of vehicles from small cars to long wheel based vans.

    Problem Solving: Working independently has allowed me to become a problem solver with issues such as budgets, time constraints, no-shows, quick re-writes and bad weather, and more creatively and effectively solving problems.

    Research: I have the ability to research an idea and gather the necessary information required for a particular piece. I am meticulous when gathering the information needed and will not stop until it is complete.

    Teamwork & Management: I am reliable at working either alone or as part of a team. Due to my experience in working on set in above the line roles and within retail management roles I am able to manage and deliver the best performance out of large teams in intense environments.

    Time Keeping: I am very punctual and good with prioritising time management not only for myself, but for others too.

    Social Skills: Working in retail and film means I've become a great communicator. I have the ability to adapt to individuals, whether it's a casual chat or a formal meeting.

    Additional Information

    Personal Skills, Hobbies:

    Production Company: I have establishing my own production company in which I create music videos, short films and corporate videos. www.reclight.com

    Podcast: I currently produce and present a podcast that is distributed online via a range a platforms.

    Gym: I am an avid gym goer as I know my profession requires strength and stamina (when working on set moving equipment and holding camera shots for long periods of time).

    Joinery: I was hired to design and build a mobile set for a theatrical production based in Manchester. I have also created other set designs for film and theatre. I have also built my own office that stands at 30ftx20ft.
