SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
My experience in different genres with large and small crews can help your project.
I've been a broadcaster since 1982, starting on radio then joining television. My first productions were in current affairs, working with on-screen reporters against tight deadlines. In those days we shot and cut on tape with just one pass in the edit - start at the beginning and finish at the end. You learn how to deal with stress and focus on structure. In 1992 I was in China and started a long passion for documentary making. I'm the kind who gets dumped in arrivals with minimal kit. Not the sort who travels with a minibus of crew and a Hilton loyalty card. But then ten years after that I had a spell making comedy dramas. And after that a run of screen biographies interviewing celebrities. Recently I've been embedded with an air ambulance service; made a show about the legendary Dick Emery and spent four months filming in the Falklands. I love my job. You just never know what adventure the next phone call will bring.
Planning and Shooting
I enjoy being organised. Planning and casting are the bedrock of award winning shows. But it takes team working to turn a schedule into television gold - on time and on budget. Your project will benefit from my experience.
Alternatively, I also enjoy working autonomously and take great pride in self shooting. Being embedded in an unfolding story.
Call me to discuss your project.
Story Structure and Script
Many years of working with some of the best execs in the business gives me confidence and clarity in organising edits. I am also able to edit in Avid and Final Cut Pro and can advise on how to make the most of new technologies in the postproduction workflow.
