About me

I’m Charlie Pennell, a Video Editor/Videographer, Designer with Audio valuable mixing/mastering experience, based in Devon, UK. I'm currently freelancing with my own creative production business producing video & digital design content for clients in the music & film industries as well as substantial promotional material across all spectrums of social media; YouTube, Instagram & Facebook. I'm fortunate to have been commissioned to direct, edit & create content for the British Red Cross & Westbank Community Centre and also to produce video, sound & design work on independent U.S films, entertainment shows, audiobooks and for multiple musicians across the globe. At present, I'm searching for full-time employment in the creative industry, primarily as a Video Editor or Videographer. I'm also open to suitable Designer or Digital/Social Marketing opportunities. To date, I've gained senior-level skills in the Adobe CC Suite; Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop & Media Encoder as well as audio programs such as Logic Pro X & Avid Pro Tools. My qualifications include an extensive double distinction grade Extended Diploma in Music Production Technology & Sound Engineering that I obtained from dBs Music, which has been enhanced by attending guest lectures from knowledgeable industry professionals including Roni Size, OD Hunte, iZotope & BBC. I've also completed work programs in high-quality recording studios, from Phoenix Sound Gallery in Exeter to Aaron Horn from Oat Milk & SARM Studios in London.
