International filming

I am an international creative video director: From full scale location filming to smaller scale shoots, I enjoy the unique challenge of each project, and always maximise the resources available. I work in a number of contexts: As a self shooting producer / director, directing a crew, or managing several crews on very large productions.

Having worked with local crews worldwide, I have experience in working with different cultures, and identified the importance of giving clear instructions, and understanding their video sensibilities, and approach, in relation to one’s own.

Studio Shoots

Working on a range of studio shoots including green screen, I always begin with an organised pre-production time, to ensure that all possibilities can be negotiated in advance, and ensure a smooth and efficient shoot day. I believe that the – overall battle is often won or lost in pre-production.

Typically I work alongside specialist crew and operators, but when budgets don’t permit – I’m a very capable self shooting director, video editor, and colourist.

Editing

The story is made in the edit. I complete my work in a fast, and creative manner, and thrive on developing dynamic stories. I believe that every film must communicate the core message clearly, whilst engaging and entertaining the viewer.

In collaboration with video editors, I always strive to produce unique and emotive stories. This process usually begins with writing an editing script, shaping the edit, adding engaging voice over, and selecting the relevant music. It’s a collaborative process, that includes the input of the series producer, or the client’s creative department.
