About me

Hi my name is Sean and I am a creatively lead and passionate filmmaker with a strong can do attitude. I have gained solid recognition from numerous production companies and film festivals including Cannes Short Film Corner. My capabilities as a camera operator and editor have been generally recognised by my ability to produce high quality work under pressure and to strict deadlines. My strengths lie in my analysing and problem solving skills when it comes to producing digital content. I'm a confident self directing shooter and I have a keen interest in new media and design technology and an extensive knowledge of Premiere Pro and other post-production softwares.
