MOMENTS

(SHORT FILM)

 

Role - Director, Cinematographer, Video Editor

 

A short film about a woman who relives some of her life defining moments.

 

Filming took place in entirely one day in Colchester (Essex), with the storyline and shot list being written the night before. Not the ideal scenario, but it was still a great production.

ABOUT ME

VIDEO IS MY PASSION

WHO AM I

 

Based in Peterborough (Cambridgeshire) and London, I'm multi-skilled in video production with several years experience in both the corporate and creative industries. I've worked on a wide range of projects, from the corporate world of live event filming, training videos, promotional clips and interviews, to the more creative side of short films, TV production and visual effects.

 

WHAT MAKES ME TICK

 

For as long as I can remember, video has been my number one passion. Inspired by the likes of Danny Boyle, Steven Spielberg and a childhood of watching hours upon hours of TV and film, I’m driven by the ambition of wanting to create my own films that inspire and evoke the same sense of joy I had growing up.

EXPERIENCE

 

(BA Hons) in Entertainment Technology from the University of Portsmouth. I originally trained as a video editor, using Avid Media Composer before making the switch to the Adobe suite for my freelance videography work.

 

I have a working knowledge of shooting with a variety of cameras, including the Canon C100, Sony FS700, GoPro HERO3 and Sony PMW 400. I’ve shot hundreds of interviews using a range of lighting and grip equipment. I’ve directed and edited several short films and produce numerous promotional material for a wide range of clients.

 

Some of the clientele I've produced video for include:

RBS, NHS, VMware, Ipswich Town FC, Suffolk CC, Information TV and PGI.
