Specialized in television drama; single and series but experienced in feature films, comedy drama, animation (Model and cell), documentary and multi-camera sitcom. I have had the privilege of working with some extremely talent producers, writers and directors including Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat, Chris Chibnall, Toby Whitehouse, Neil Gaiman, Rachel Talalay and Ben Wheatley to name a few. As you will divine from the rather too long list, my cv covers everything from Shakespeare to Sci-Fi; procedural police series to comedy; swashbucklers to domestic drama. Additional experience includes a significant in depth knowledge of CGI and other computer effects which have become a useful tool for all film makers. But “The play is the thing…”, and many of my films have been critically well received. See the awards section.
Coming originally from a “real” film editing skill base it was easy to migrate to the non-linear world of Avid and Lightworks using my computer science background. On the VFX side I also have a working knowledge of Lightwave 3D modeling, After Effects and Vue Infinite Landscape modeling. In the past I’ve also designed and programmed a motion control/rostrum camera rig for BBC Wales and for a number of documentaries also created the digital rostrum camera work. However “never a technical editor be…” all these skills are used to tell stories with performance, staging and script analysis always at the forefront of ones mind.
