About Me

 

I am a freelance Producer, self-shooting Director and Editor.

I specialise in short educational and socially conscious documentaries but have a wide variety of experience including, drama, corporate promos and charity testimonials.

Although I enjoy all aspects of film making editing is my main obsession. I’m a fast editor, used to working to tight deadlines with passion and enthusiasm. I have my own distinctive editing style but I am always looking for ways to improve and thrive when adjusting my approach to fit a particular market or brief. I’m constantly learning new skills and programmes to improve my edits with graphics, grading and original effects. I have recently invested in what I can only describe as a “bad-ass” 8 Core Mac Pro set up and I am always looking for opportunities to push it to it’s limits!

I am a confident and stylish self-shooter on a variety of cameras. I have excellent people skills. I’m able to communicate with people on all levels from A-list celebrities to ex-gang members with tact and professionalism. I enjoy being part of a hard working team but also have the independence and drive to work alone on a project to high standards.

I’m also an experienced film workshop facilitator and enjoy working with students of all ages and abilities. I feel passionate about the potential of film to empower people and give them a voice.
