    Director / VideographerRBFILMSUK
    Manchester, United KingdomFreelance
    Over the past five years I have been developing my company RBFILMSUK by working on a wide variety of different video productions often in the role of a Director or Videographer. The content I have worked on includes live events, fashion, music, lifestyle, sports, short films and documentaries. I have worked on international projects in locations such as Berlin, Barcelona, New York & Los Angeles. I work closely with PR & Marketing agencies on highly engaging content for wider marketing campaigns, for global companies such as the Co-op & Samsung, as well as small start ups and individuals.

    Lead VideographerViddyoze Limited
     - Preston, United KingdomFull Time
    During my time at Viddyoze, I handled the bulk of the video content. Whether it be Viddyoze brand campaigns in-house, or for our external clients, I produce high quality visual content to help them showcase their services. I travelled internationally to work on Viddyoze own content and put together other video campaigns. Through this video promotion, they develop their marketing campaigns and strategies using our high quality video content. This is something that becomes integrated into their brand identity and we work to ensure this is coherent, engaging and professional on all levels of deliverance. In the growth of the company, I was responsible for the reviewing of additional footage we source from contractors and freelancers when working on larger scale projects or remote access filming. I also helped to concept video campaigns and do all necessary pre-production as well as sourcing freelancers, locations/studios & kit hire for shoot dates.
