About Me

I graduated in 2016 with a 2:1 in Media and Communications (Television) at Birmingham City University. Since then, I have developed my skills as a videographer and editor working on various branded projects including promotional films and training videos. These have included interviews and presenter pieces to camera. I have also worked on observational behind the scenes branded content.

 

I love a technical challenge and am always exploring new ways of approaching film making by using the latest cameras and rigs. I keep up to date with the ongoing upgrades of equipment available and familiarise myself with these quickly and efficiently. I like to think in pictures and have experience of a variety of cameras including Canon XF305/XF105, C300, XC10. I am also experienced in sound and can operate booms, zoom microphones and wireless clip on microphone systems, I am able to sync external microphone feeds during production into the final edit efficiently. I have also run sound mixing desks for schools and dance productions, successfully monitoring levels over external speaker systems.

 

I have developed my craft as an editor by using different editing software and am proficient in Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro and Avid. I can also apply graphic packages during on-lines as well as Adobe Audition for sound mixing and effects.

 

Being born and bred in Birmingham, I come from a long line of Birmingham City football supporters and am proud to be part of this creative city of ‘a thousand trades’. I would love to enhance and further my career within branded content films as well as pursuing any opportunities within the broadcast industry within our great city.
