Cloudy bay 'origins' ep1
3 days of travel for 2.5 days in New Zealand! Robin, Dan & I were lucky enough to have the chance to fly around the world to Blenheim, a lovely rural place full of vineyards and beautiful scenery! This was my first structured 'tv' style shoot with a presenter, I was anxious to learn what these shoots are like but I was pleasantly surprised. We had an extremely short time to shoot and even shorter with Ben Fogle so efficiancy was key, but everything went to plan and was a great experience!

Tribal clash 2019
A fantastic weekend of sun, sea, sweat, power and editing.
Guess which one of those applies to me.. It was great to be a shooter/editor on an event producing video content on their channel.

OMAN ALL-TERRAIN MARATHON
This remains my favourite editing assignment to date. Receiving these great shots on a drive, getting to choose some great tracks and a brief that just says make a fast exciting edit to promote an awesome event in a beautiful country, what more could one ask for?
It was a pleasure working with Wanderlust Action Films, check them out below!

Frankie x Grace Jacob Swim
A fun, full on day up in Manchester working with Ben & Harvey to produce a series of short promos to release the partner ship of Frankie Gaff with the brand. Katie and I worked hard to capture all we needed for the edits incuding lots of different scene design and lighting changes. It was joy to shoot and was exciting to cut and I am so pleased to be involved.

resurrection OF HUMAN KINDNESS
This is a very different project for me and I am proud to be a part of it. A short documentary shot by the boys at ‘Outfilming’ with the innovative artist Benjamin Collard. The film follows his endeavours during his exhibitions and the long journey around the country showing his fantastic margarine sculpture,
sadly things didn’t quite go to plan.
The story that unfolds as you watch this piece evokes many emotions and really is a journey. It was a nice piece to edit and I hope I can be involved with his future endeavours.
A Man and his Motorbikes
I had a fun day shooting with The Motorcycle Broker up on the moors. It was a blast to see these fantastic classic bikes in action. Paul is a master of his trade and knows the ins and outs of many bikes and its incredible to see him with these beautiful machines.

the icon a5 amphibious plane
Sadly I wasn't allowed to use the Bond music for this, as it would have been perfect. With all of 5 minutes planning we buzzed about on the water with Ben buckled in to this fly contraption and pressed record. The outcome was exactly what we wanted and look perfect in the golden hour light. All in front of the downtown San Diego skyline.

THE ROAD TO BURGHLEY
“Never work with Animals and Children”
After hearing that quote you may think this shoot could be a nightmare…..no, it was absolutely brilliant.
Harry and his family were fantastic up for anything even the ride into the back of the trailer. Hannah and I had a blast finding items for Harry to pack and I feel the edit came out nicely.

OVER THE OCEAN
Purely drone and the ocean, one of my favourite combos.... Oh and Hip Hop, that helps. The amount of people who have seen themselves surfing in my films is astounding, it really is great to find the people you capture while shooting and see the reaction they have when they see themselves in the edits, it really pleases me to know people are watching and appriciate the films I make.

ESS 2018 Venue Release
This film was a first for me, including studio shot scenes mixed with stock footage with a heavy stylistic theme and graphics. The film doesn't follow the usual adrenaline filled style of the ESS edits but thats what I liked so much about this, it is simple yet effect and a good challenge to make.

Made in Britain
This is possibly my favourite film I have been able to work on with Red Handed. We had the chance to shoot at Corgi, a small South Wales based clothing manufacturer to feature in one of our films produced for Hope Fashion. I already find manufacturing processes very interesting and being able to capture it as creatively as possible had me excited.
(Photo Left) Sam realising that his stunning cinematic light switching off sequences didn't make an ounce of difference, was a moment that could not be wasted. What a fun shoot and edit to be a part of.

After wanting to visit Dorset for a long time we finally managed to get there and visit lots of the beautiful locations it has to offer! It seems I can't go anywhere with out my camera and drone but it does mean I get to capture and create these short films as a memory.

Cornwall Wave Classic 2016
Coffee, Spotify, Warm Clothes & A Zoom Lens. Essentials when the rise is early, the drive is long and the weather is... British. We travelled with a challenge in mind, the goal was to capture the essence of the four day event in only one. I am always apprehensive for a shoot if I think that we are going to be rushed. We arrived as the waves and competitors rolled in, but windsurfing requires another essential factor... Wind. After hours of waiting, watching, worrying, a gust rolled through and the guys jumped in. We got the shots we needed and captured the prize giving in the dark using car headlights as our very professional studio lighting. I feel like the final product was a success, plus I had a great time with the team shooting the even. Good day at the office. (Part Shoot + Edit)
WMRT PARKOUR (RHTV)
Moving boats, hiring new kit, 3 camera, 7 crew, 2 free runners and lots of sailors. A lot of effort went into this short film, Me and Adam Stocker had the chance to jump on the cameras a try to follow these guys around the WMRT event site. All credit to Robin SJ our producer for thinking of the idea and made it happen! Kan & Adam brought the edit to life, it looks great and with library music, can you believe it!

M32 vs Volvo Ocean Racer
A short action packed social film produced by Red Handed TV. I was lucky enough to be able to film onboard with Ewii Match Racing Team and be hunted down by the giant Volvo 65. The turn around time was extremely short, I came into the edit straight off of the water and was completed the same day. Shooting this film was one of the most exciting filming experiences of my life to date, what a day! (Part Shoot + Edit)
WATERGATE BAY SURFING
As the sun set, the surfers ripped. More and more arrived to hit the waves after work, to forget the day behind them before they hit the hay. This beach is great, with Newquay just around the corner, it is brimming with great surfer that are amazing to watch, I was lucky enough to be there with my camera and capture them for half an hour before we left.

What makes an athlete?
Stef was amazing to work with, so kind, easy, supportive and helpful, plus she welcomed us into her home to shoot. Sadly it wasn't as easy as expected, we did not have stef to ourselves, we only could fiom her training for the Rio Paralympics which was a big challenge. We only had 12 jumps to shoot in total, but I think it went pretty well and the film came out well. I wasn't in on the edit for this film but Jake did a fantastic job with the cut. Stef's interview (asked by Pete) was great, she really warmed up and opened her heart to the camera and I feel it shows. Overall a great shoot in and out of location. Always to be remembered.

Bristol Aircooled+ Show 2016
Deep in the heat of summer I decided to go on a spontaneous trip to a great looking car show like no other I had seen in the UK. As its me I had to take my camera, with no aim or intention of making a film. I popped in my car with a camera and a lens and pottered up to Brizzle. The event was fantastic as you can see in the film andmanaged to get a few shots handheld with a tracking effect for a dynamic looking shot. The song choice is always a long process but this time it was a no brainer, one of the campers was blaring out this fantastic remix of Lean On and I was hooked. I would love to go back and capture some more of the awesome cars!
