Producing video for a social-media world…BLOG_013

With video playing such a big part across social-media, do all the same rules and guidelines apply?

Over the last few months I’ve worked on a variety of different projects, with different clients and different audiences, and tackling each brief has been a unique experience.

Engaging video on social-media either for personal entertainment or promotional/informational content for businesses, has grown massively over the last few years and is now a key element of all social-media use. But with so much content out there filling people’s social feeds it can be difficult to stand out and make an impact.

2017 Showreel…BLOG_012


I’ve never really made a proper showreel before; maybe because I’ve never had enough content, or maybe because I’ve never had something I can feel properly proud of. At the start of this year though, I decided I wanted to create and be a part of many different projects, and produce content that I canย be proud of. This showreel showcases just that.

Brunel Rowing 2016/17…BLOG_011

One Guy, a Camera, and the Thames – How hard can this be?

In an effort to boost creativity, challenge myself and add to my ever-growing portfolio – all whilst helping out my former sports club – I set myself the task of creating a promotional-style video for Brunel University’s Rowing Club.

Set on a course that inevitably threw up a vast array of different obstacles, I persevered and managed to create something that, to-date, I feel is one of the best films I’ve made; especially in terms of cinematography and self-produced content. Continue reading “Brunel Rowing 2016/17…BLOG_011”

Filming on the Thames…BLOG_010

I haven’t been on many self-shooting gigs in my time but this one was one of the biggest opportunities I’ve landed to date and was very exciting in terms of both the project itself and the independence it gave me. Plus, filming at the heart of London on a boat cruising through the Thames whilst passing world famous landmarks was a great bonus that added to the whole experience.

Post-Production Project…BLOG_009

Helping out some friends, I delved into the wonders of keying and motion graphics/titles post-production editing.

Drones: An aerial menace?…BLOG_008

I guess when you really think about it, something that can fly through the air with lethal precision, hard-edged cutting blades spinning crazily at all four corners and all whilst simultaneously being controlled by a remote miles away, potentially could seem quite dangerous and therefore also quite risky.

Winter 2016… BLOG_007

Up, up and away!

Only three months of having my drone and I already feel very confident with it. With previous pieces of technology, I always find myself infatuated with them at the start and then somehow dust slowly descends onto them ย when I find little use for them at the time.

Working on my first Self-Shoot Gig…BLOG_006

I’ve made a lot of different videos over the years and using a lot of different techniques and many different cameras too, but I’ve never really made a proper film for a business before. This was an exciting opportunity for me and I knew I wanted to get it right and make the end product very professional too, especially seeing as I only had one opportunity to film.

My Drone’s first flight… BLOG_005

After twenty one there aren’t that manyย specialย birthdays for a while, so I guess this is why my parents decided to get me something special. I’ve always been interested in drones ever since DJI came on the scene, and DP Philip Bloom created the amazing ‘Koh Yao Noi’ Drone Short ( That’s why when my Mum told me that they had got me a DJI Phantom 3 Advanced I was over the moon, and obviously very eager to go out and fly the thing and try my best to capture footage that many others had been creating for years.
