Filming independently.

Editing taster tapes on a range of software.
Researching and annotating scripts.
Assisting edits.

Most of my work and interests are in casting and shooting great factual shows and documentaries, whatever the tone may be. I have shot for broadcast on a range of cameras and have great people skills, always working on a great level with production teams and the many various contributors I've both found and filmed with over the past few years. I can set up master interviews, self shoot sequences, and deal with contributors and talent in a professional yet easy going manner. I always give everything my all, with a great attitude, and hope to progress with the aim of one day becoming a factual self-shooting PD.

Great guy

Tom Power, Shooting PD

Callum did a great job for us on a really tricky casting gig.

Confident, persistent and hard-working, I'd happily work with him again if and when the occasion arose.

Giles Freeman, Head of Development Znak & Co UK

I had the pleasure of working with Callum from June 2016 to the end February 2017 on the first and second series of "Coast". He is polite, conscientious and extremely hard working. He has a warm easy going personality which is so important in a Casting AP. His camera work is very good as are his editing skills.He tackles ever project with enthusiasm and great interest.

It was Callum's choice to leave "Coast", we would happily kept him on until the end of the series. He was a great asset to the production team and will be to anyone else lucky enough to employ him. Yours sincerely Sally Spencer

Sally Spencer, Production Manager, Coast v Country

Callum takes to any role with great zest and enthusiasm, he's not afraid to get stuck in and make sure whatever is needed is done.

He is I Incredibly efficient caster, has great rapport with the contributors to make sure they are happy and comfortable.

Not only is he smart, proactive and diligent with his work but he is a joy to be around.
