I am a freelance filmmaker, specialising in editing, currently based in East London. I have edited short films, music videos, documentaries and promos for corporate clients (including BBC Birmingham and Dr. Martens). I've worked as an assistant videographer and editor for the cocktail website Difford's Guide, as well as the production company Blue Hippo Media. I graduated from Staffordshire University in 2014 with a First Class Honours Degree in Film Production. Accolades: - My film Paper Plates premiered at the No Gloss Film Festival in Leeds in 2013 - My film SIGMA was shown as part of the Worcester Film Festival in 2014 - My film Ice Cream Man won 'Short of the Week' on Awardeo.tv in 2015 I am experienced in: Final Cut Pro (7 & X) Adobe CC (Including Premiere Pro, After Effects & Photoshop) Avid Media Composer I also own the following gear: Canon 600D Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 EX DC HSM OS Lens Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens Tascam DR100 Mk2 Portable Recorder & Rode NTG-1 Microphone iMac (27 inch, Late 2012) with full Adobe CC collectionLocked Pro Plan feature
My time at Difford's Guide saw me assist on a variety of projects, including documentary films (long and short form), promotional pieces and instructional videos. I spent most of my time editing videos using Adobe's Creative Cloud suite, but also helped shoot several videos (using a mixture of DSLRs and a Sony FS7).
This job involved tracking and assessing social media stories and trends, as they relate to television. A large part of my job was to act as editor-in-chief of an industry-wide newsletter highlighting big social television stories of the week.
During my internship at Blue Hippo Media, I undertook assistant editing duties on the feature documentary 'Bicycle'. This involved editing short vignettes that were included in the film, as well as teaser and promos.
