About me

I'm an award-winning self-shooting PD and video editor with a wide experience in the digital and broadcast world. I’ve worked as a creative director and filmmaker producing commercials, third sector, promos, music videos, visuals and short-films. I work as well on my own as when I'm part of a bigger team, quickly fitting into crews hitting the ground running. Thinking outside the box is second nature.

          Bright Signals

          Jun 2016 - Jul 2016
          • Glasgow, United Kingdom
          • Freelance
          • I worked alongside Bright Signals to produce social media content for BBC5 Live and their coverage of the Euro 2016 football championship in Twitter and Facebook as well as their website www.bbc.co.uk/5live. Within my duties were to edit a daily wrap-up video of the day's games so it could be available next morning. The key component to these videos was the audio for obvious reasons, and to this was added a series of sequences of still images giving the movement and the pace. These photographs were edited to a comic look style and dialogue boxes were added to highlight what the commentators were saying. Also I made a series of illustrations of some of the most important players during the tournament and GIF animations for their social media channels to remark key moments in game.
