"Clients come directly to me with a brief and rough idea which I develop into a full-scale treatment. I manage the production, source team and bring the video to life with brilliant grade,. I manage the work-flow myself from start to finish and creating something new and exciting each time to the clientâ€™s taste. Iâ€™m adaptable, with a variety of work styles, areas and visual directions, each job catered specifically to my client.
I use my strongly broad, integrated range of skills to produce
content from start to finish - developing a concept with the client, sourcing teams, shooting footage, editing content, grading, video editing and marketing on delivery. "
