I am a London based videographer and video editor, primarily working in the social media industry, creating content for clients. I am looking for a role in which I can contribute to dynamic, engaging productions while continuing to develop my creative skills in both videography and the use of technical platforms in post-production. I have four years experience practical experience in DSLR Videography and Photography and post production software in the Adobe suite. During my time as a social media content creator, working in the video production team enabled me to gain hands on professional filming, photography and editing experience, whilst also learning visual effects in After Effects. Primarily using the Canon C100 and 5D Mark 3, shoots took place both on location and in studio, varying from ‘How to’ videos, to launch events and parties. As the destination of all the video projects I worked on we distributed via different social media platforms such as Instagram, Facebook, Vimeo and Youtube, I understand how to export and upload videos specifically to where they will be broadcasted. I participated in photography shoots from flat lay stylised product shots, event photography, creating stop motion video’s/animations and cinemagraphs for clients. These projects have all contributed to my knowledge of Photoshop, Lightroom and Camera Raw. I have also acquired skills essential on set, such as setting up and positioning lighting for the style of shoot, organising and setting up necessary camera equipment. I’m an enthusiastic contributor equally comfortable working in a team or on my own as required by a particular project. I communicate well and deliver to deadlines.Locked Pro Plan feature

A course which covered different platforms of end to end media production. As part of my 3-year study, I learnt about a variety of aspects of media including hands-on audio-visual production, individually and in groups, as well as the theoretical elements behind the development and application of modern media in today’s world. My passion for film and video has always been a key driver for me in determining my future career path. Studying media culture and practice not only taught me how to technically operate the video production equipment and postproduction software, but it also provided me with an insight to critical themes and theories within film and television. As the culture modules were very “sociology heavy”, engaging in social research and trends in relation to film and television was key to understanding the basis of film production. These academic theories have contributed to the development of my own work, providing theoretical grounds as a creative foundation to practical application.
