    About me

    I am experienced 1st Assistant Camera / Focus puller based in London, UK

    Occasionally I also do camera / steadicam operatoring, I have been trained by GBCT last year under Peter Robertson and Fabrizio Sciara in steadicam operating techniques. Being first assisting camera / focus puller is my passion and profession. I approach my work with a determination to invest ever more creativity, stamina and fresh research.

    Your sincerely,

    Rafal Rakoczy

    Additional Information

    My educational background comes from a video art society called Video Point at the Polish National Film School in Lodz, from London College of Communication, where I studied Film and Video Production and University of Westminster, where I graduated with BA Contemporary Media Practice.

    In addition, in 2014 I have been trained at National Film and Television School ( NFTS ) on a short course ( sponsored by creative SkillSet) practicing 16mm and 35 cameras assisting. I have also been trained through Guild of British Camera Technician in Steadicam Operating Techniques. Moreover I am also a qualified Open Scuba Diver.
