About me

I am a editor/videographer. I'm 34 years old and I have recently returned from Los Angeles where I've been plying my trade for the past 6 years. Thus I am now looking for work in London (or anywhere in England really). To give you a bit of background about myself, I have written, directed, edited and shot more content than I can even remember. From corporate promo videos to full blown movie productions, I have been involved in it all and consider myself an expert in getting a project from inception to completion and pride myself on working quickly, efficiently, and to the highest level. In the past few years where I somehow became the go-to guy for low-budget shooting of shorts/scenes/sketches in Hollywood. Thus putting me firmly in the bracket of "one man band" as far as production is concerned - doing my own lighting, sound, editing, directing, music, sound design, VFX etc. I am interested in permanent work, although would consider freelance, and below are some links to my websites. My CV is also attached and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. - films/sketches/online content/promotional materials etc - my own freelance showreel company in LA. - for some reviews from clients I worked with in the past. Cheers, John.
