About me
For more than a decade I have worked as a Self Shooting Director creating video content for many high-profile clients and organisations. I’ve had the opportunity to work with great institutions such as The Royal National Theatre, The Barbican, Amazon, Kiln Theatre, University of East London, The MOBO Awards amongst others. With an immense passion for filming I have shot and created work across commercials, promos, performance, documentary and short-form - motivated by my love for the art and self growth within the industry. I have extensive shooting experience across all major cinema system cameras - Arri, Sony, Canon - and currently shoot and direct with a mobile setup built around a Sony A7S iii. I find that my warm and easy going personality helps lead and collaborate within different crews and I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life. As a dedicated team player my motto is to strive towards the main goal of the client/organisation to support their vision. I actively maintain a healthy lifestyle by cycling, running and going to the gym regularly to keep my mind and body motivated. Working as a Self Shooting Director is very rewarding which stimulates my passion for filming and drive. I’m open to collaborating on all project types and take on work with an end-to-end approach.

  • JYLDA - Reeled
    JYLDA - ReeledJYLDA aka Italian-German talent Gianna Gehlhar has unveiled the official video for her new track ‘Reeled’. The new single release is the second offering from the London based dance-pop act, who is set to release her debut EP ‘Twitch’ on the 19th of April. Comparable to the likes of Robyn and Little Dragon, new release ‘Reeled’ is, on the surface, a warm and sun-kissed dance single, tinged with the melancholy of brooding over moments lost in time and chasing endlessly for more.

    With more than 10 years of video production experience I have been commissioned to work as a Video Content producer at the Royal National Theatre. I have worked on plays such as Saint George and the Dragon, Network by Lee hall with Bryan Cranston, John etc. With my strong sense of visual composition of shots when filming and a unique style of video editing I can break down projects into salient parts giving me the ability to fluently create new content for my client.

    As a video content producer my role here was to change the way online video content was created and delivered to a vast growing audience. My job was to develop a plan that will increase social media engagement communicating through the means of video sharing. While working there I successfully commissioned several video projects that received positive reviews from the Head of Communications department who also said she liked my unique style of filming.
