Im an enthusiastic and driven individual who likes a challenge and can draw from my extensive experience to find solutions for problems. I bring to the table an unusual hybrid of creativity and an analytical mind, having both directed and produced. I love working with people and am as happy to be an integral part of a team as I am to lead it. I pride myself on being able to look at a project as a whole and see it through from conception to completition. Not much makes me happier than being involved in all aspects of a project and helping it to be as best as it can be.Locked Pro Plan feature
As a Producer I have budgeted and managed dozens of productions with budgets ranging from 5K to 250K. I am an excellent problem solver, able to adapt and find new solutions for most eventualities through my knowledge and contacts. I have a deep understanding of all aspects of production, having overseen campaigns from inception to broadcast. I am just as happy organising a studio shoot as I am to organise a CG build. Any project that I am tasked with I will take on with enthusiasm and confidence. I understand and enjoy working with clients who need a problem solved and work tirelessly with all the resources I have, to get the best outcome for the client and project. I have a very large contact list with fantastic crew for both production and post production, which I can call on at any time.
I have Directed dozens of films as part of Blac Ionica. Through the pitch process I have written hundreds of Treatments, bringing to life a script or even starting from a simple outline and creatively overseeing the project through to the end. The type and purpose of the content I have directed varies nearly as much as the client list including TV commercials, Title Sequences for TV programs, Online content, Social content, Corporate films and cinema campaigns. Much as the producer aspect to my career, I am just as happy Directing live action car shoots as I am stop frame animated fruit. Essentially I am creatively adaptable and feel I can move with the changing times and industries.
As Co-founder and Managing Director I steered the company through a rapidly changing financial and technical climate, adapting from working with TV production companies to advertising agencies, multi million pound clients and of course the public. I wasresponsible for controlling the direction and finances of the company while managing our employees and freelancers. I love being in the thick of it and working in a collaborative approach while helping to steer everyone to a common goal.
