I'm a filmmaker working and residing in London, UK. I independently develop, produce and post-produce CG films and have exhibited extensively nationally and internationally at galleries including The Royal Standard (Liverpool), SEAGER (London), The Collection (Lincoln) and BACKLIT (Nottingham). I have delivered workshops in video production and animation techniques, lectured at an undergraduate level, and have presented my research publicly during lectures, symposiums and artist talks. Currently, I am studying with the School of the Damned (SotD), an alternative and nomadic arts and educational platform. Re-forming on an annual basis, each cohort has the opportunity to define the agenda and produce work and events individually and collectively. SotD was formed in 2014 as a reaction to the increasing financialisation of Higher Education in the UK. SotD has no tuition fees, is student led and peer supported. We use our collective resources and networks to make the things we want to happen, happen. I now work at DMS as a motion graphics designer. I create localisations of film trailers, bumpers, social spots and other promotional content for the campaigns of major blockbuster releases for high profile clients including Warner Brothers, Sony and Fox. I have excellent working knowledge of After Effects and Blender, and a strong understanding of Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Media Encoder and Cinema 4D.Locked Pro Plan feature
As one of the Digital Humanities Centre’s Leonardo Fellows, I am working alongside artists Joey Holder and AJA, and a team of MA student volunteers, to produce a virtual reality music video and live experience. I provide specialist knowledge of 3D modelling and animation, and continue to work remotely on the project.
I independently develop, produce and post-produce CGI films, which are exhibited in gallery spaces, online platforms and film screenings. I have delivered workshops in video production and animation techniques, and have presented my research publicly during lectures, symposiums and artist talks at sites including Nottingham Contemporary, The Collection (Lincoln), and BACKLIT (Nottingham). I have also been hired by clients (artists, musicians and other creatives), working closely with them to produce 3D rendered visuals from their imaginings.
I was invited by Nottingham Trent University to deliver a series of workshops to BA Fine Art students that introduced them to 3D animation and visual effects using Blender and After Effects. Blender — Introduction to the user interface, environment design, ocean simulation, material nodes, lighting, cameras and rendering images. After Effects — Introduction to the user interface, masking, applying effects to found footage, keyframing and exporting.
Reporting to the Director, I oversaw the day-to-day of running of BACKLIT’s studios and supported the needs of its 45 resident artists and 23 associate artists. I reviewed all studio applications, interviewed potential candidates, created contracts for new members and undertook health and safety inductions. I liaised with external organisations regarding studio provision and artist development, and maintained financial systems that monitored studio rent. I also created new studio policies, organised and lead quarterly studio meetings, created a quarterly newsletter and was the main contact for all studio inquiries via telephone and email.
Delta Sorority was a self-initiated research and curatorial project that worked to provide a platform for the promotion and development of emerging artists working with digital media. I coordinated Delta Sorority's digital residency, in which I constructed a purpose-built website that became a platform for the research of seven international digital artists, and coordinated a screening at BACKLIT Gallery of the work of a further six artists. I also completed a two week residency within Nottingham Trent University, during which I mentored undergraduate students, facilitated workshops, and invited them to collaborate on ongoing research.
First Class Honours (89%) In my final year, I specialised in moving image (videography, film editing, colour grading, AV installation).
