As a development producer and shooter, I lead the pre-production stages with four videographers on the team alongside producing the final edit. This involved conceptualising the reel alongside planning the agenda for each videographer on the day and creating the final video.

    FVU: FRAMESI developed a quirky spin on Film and Video Umbrella's existing Frames series which saw a range of behind-the-scenes moments from innovative films come to life. One-minute, home video-inspired clips were produced for each artist to provide an intimate and relational feel for the viewer.
