I’m a senior freelance editor, motion-graphics artist and video compositor with over ten years experience. Mostly that time has been spent freelancing so I’ve probably seen inside every thinkable edit suite and post production situation known to man. Used just about every version and update of Final Cut and Avid, and put lots of the various and amazing plug-ins to good use. To be honest I thrive on the change, the people I get to work with, the projects that I get to be a part of and the knowledge I always gain from them. I also love a challenge and lots of hard work. Since I know nobody can convince anybody of creative skills through just sheer talk, let my work speak for itself!
I provide editing services on all types of projects, with most types of software currently available. Long-form work like documentaries, fiction and series. Short-form that encompasses anything from promos, corporate, fashion, adverts etc. My job is also to guide you to the right solutions for your projects and where the films will end up often dictates how and what and in which format.
Using a combination of mostly Adobe After Effects and Motion I can create exciting motion graphics to enhance any type of project. I also use Cinema 4D to create fluid 3d and photo realistic visual experiences. With over 12 years of commercial experience in the industry, I have a great understanding of how to reach audiences, how to discover trends and use them to your advantage on any project.
The "hidden" VFX, compositing and grade is often part of the on-lining process of any project. And I have been providing this service since the beginning of my career. Offering consultancy prior to shoots so that the client can plan the production more efficiently for best final result. With your ideas, and a collaborative approach, consideration to budget, creating the spectacular.
Sound mixing and sound design is something that I always provide in all my edits. I may not be able to record your band or create surround sound and 3d spaces, but what I will always provide by default is a sound edit that is taken as far as it can physically go before the audio professionals take over which will leave your project with a professional and sleek sounding finish to any kind of production.
Working for many different clients means that no job is ever the same. I do consider myself extremly privileged to work on many different kinds of projects. From adverts, promos, confidential company pitches or corporate videos to short films, documentaries, stings, music videos or animated features, Online or Offline. Hopefully this will give you a good understanding of the kind of videos I can create for you or your business.
When it comes down to it my biggest core skill is that I I'm an intuitive and experienced editor. Simple enough. That's where I started and I enjoy it immensely. My core skills outside that lie in the post production world, with all the tons of technical knowledge that comes with over a decade of freelance experience. Software I love to use every day are FCP, Premiere and After Effects although Motion get's used a lot as well. Core skills also lie in the planning and strategy process. So guiding a project from start to finish is a key part in what I do. I have long experience in onlining projects for all types of markets and outputs and understand how to treat each video to each market, country, format (be it mobiles, web, LCD, tv, cinema, IMAX and 3d) following every countries guidelines and output rules.
I am also comfortable with photoshop, illustrator and simple and effective 3d designs (although always learning new things every day, so this section may be null and void by the time you contact me for availability). Creating content for web and interaction in video content is something new and exciting as well. Flash is disappearing but html 5 is an exciting and very sophisticated visual approach to web and I'm learning more and more how to make use of this for video content. I believe in the future, film will more and more rely on web as a way of distribution and reaching their audiences, and I'm very focused on finding clever and new solutions for my clients.
Producing! I love creating projects from scratch and have hands-on experience in promo-production for places like Disney and Channel V. Also experience in developing pilots and developing and co producing feature documentaries and live music events. I feel that post production really has afforded me experience and knowledge in all aspects of production. I work with producers, cinematographers, actors, directors, sound, V.F.X. and animation people every day and know what they need in order to do their jobs well. It's a good and useful knowledge to bring to the producing world. The Raindance Film Festival has truly been helpful in educating me in media law and distribution, and in the independent film world I have been shadowing some extremely talented and inspirational people. And I'm always open for considering your project and helping you get it of the ground.
Working in London as a senior freelance editor, motion-graphics artist and video compositor I am blessed with the opportunity of working for a variety of different companies, organisations, businesses and brands. I am also fortunate enough to have met some great and inspirational people along my journey. A selection and a tribute, of who I have had the pleasure of working with so far in my career.
