About me

I have just finished a contract based role as a Dailies Producer for Sim International working on two TV series due to be shown on Amazon in the winter 2019. My role was to produce dailies for the film editors for the show. Once media drives arrive from set, the master footage will be processed (synced and colour graded) and prepare a workable output format for the editors, the format depends on the spec of the show. QC’ing is vital as render glitches, dead pixels etc do occur on occasion. Once this is complete, backups to master drives and LTOs are completed and checked. As mentioned this has just finished and I am looking to get back into an editing role.   Prior to this I was a Video Production Manager/Editor for Sommet-Education in London, UK. I started this role in November 2017 and my tasks involve consulting with marketing managers in different territories regarding present and upcoming video productions. Also, I was heavily involved in the production, camera operation and also editing and finalising deliverables. Before moving back to the UK I was a freelance digital media professional in Bangkok, Thailand and my work mostly revolved around video and audio. Some of the projects I have worked on have been for Canon, Chevrolet, United Nations and many more. I have also held full-time placements at various companies in Asia. My work included shooting and editing videos for online platforms using, shooting scripts, run and gun style, location scouting and audio editing/mixing.   During my studies at university I obtained a range of skills from Audio Editing, Post-Production, Location Sound, Video Editing, and Production Sound. The programs I use to create and edit are Premiere Pro, After Effects, Cubase SX and Adobe Audition along with a myriad of 3rd party plug-ins.   I am hard working, reliable, with a positive attitude and able to prioritise tasks well for deadlines. I am focused, technically minded, have an eye for detail and am motivated to achieve goals and tasks. Please find my C.V. attached with this letter. I am currently available to start with one weeks notice.   My reel can be found at:https://youtu.be/SszUIXaa5gs and my portfolio link can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmKw0MIcnCvfohsxm-XKNFg/videos   I would like to thank you for taking the time out to read this and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
