I am a highly skilled and experienced Self Shooting AP/Editor (Preditor) and PfCO Drone Pilot using both Avid Media Composer and Premiere Pro Creative Cloud, alongside After Effects to deliver both Broadcast and Corporate productions. Additional knowledge of shared storage systems Avid Isis 5000, Edit Share, and Frame IO as well as Nexto DI Field Storage. My skills include Scripting, Storyboarding, Broadcast Filming across various cameras and rigs, and particular experience in filming cars and automotive sport, Editing, and versioning.
I've edited both long-form and short-form projects across different formats in broadcast including observational documentary, Reality, and fixed rig shows both in Editor and Assistant Editing roles, plus filming for BT Sport, Sky TV, LBC radio, Aurora Media and the Rugby League on locations and Live OB too.
My knowledge and experience has taken me as far away as Antigua for National geographic where I oversaw the collection, Logging, and media management organisation of multiple codecs from different camera sources including CCTV onboard rowing boats for the Talisker Whiskey North Atlantic challenge for National Geographic channel. I have edit produced on location for sports media company Aurora and their client Jaguar Land Rover who where very happy with the final films and I have also worked locally in Manchester at Flix Facilities as conforming editor on Avid delivering 4 episodes of the channel four program, The Lie detective'
As an Editor, I have often been asked to oversee more junior Assistant Editors and Data Wranglers as I have demonstrable knowledge in workflows for post-editing work, one such example being asked to create a workflow for the Bristol-based production company Films @59 for their channel 4 series The secret life of the family. Here I produced in conjunction with their lead Assistant Editor a document workflow for taking footage from location to post-production for the series.
My other Editing skills include Data Wrangling, Logging, Conforming, Multi-Group and Syncing, Production of Cut-downs and Proxy files for offline, Day Camming, string-outs, and some basic DIT skills.
I have additional skills using After Effects to produce titles and Motion Track to insert VFX assets plus I have experience in Keying and composites too.
Additionally, I am CAA certified with a PfCO as a Drone Pilot and operate an Inspire 1 Raw cinematic drone with X5 Camera and a gimbal mount. Read Less
