So. Yesterday I was sat at my desk wondering how I could go about creating a campaign video that people will actually watch. The topic, which isn’t anything new for me, is something close to my heart as it personally affects me: Captions… or the lack of.
On the 13th of March, the elections results night was live streamed on Facebook. I planned and was able to ensure that it happened as lockdown was on the horizon and so knew that there would be students (and their family) wanting to watch. This video below is the edit from the live feed (tidied up & captioned).
So if you’re viewing this website, I likely gave the address to you whilst I was attending cJam:media 2019, or whilst canvassing for work.
Firstly, thankyou for actually looking at the showreel website; I opted to create this instead of handing out CVs as this can be updated during my career as the work I do is completed.
What the client wanted:
I was asked to edit an interview for PulseTV. The interview was a student (Peter) talking to lead singer Jay from Ska Face. I didn’t take part in the actual filming or recording of sound; I was given the files and went to work.
This TV pilot covers LGBT issues and the community.

This piece is about body image. I was both cinematographer and editor.
We were asked to create a piece on a social issue – I chose homelessness and disability. The piece was entirely constructed with stock footage from Stock Unlimited.
I was tasked with finding a client and producing a promotional video for them; I chose the Tallia School of Dance.
We were asked to create a VFX piece, so I chose to turn stock video shots into underwater scenes. I also added elements into it to make it more authentic. The clip is inspired by “The Shape of Water”.
I was approached by a friend to help produce content for her social media channels during the UCLan Students’ Union elections. Ultimately she won by a huge majority. These are the three videos I produced for her.
