I am a highly accomplished Senior VFX Supervisor with a long history in Post Production, available worldwide for Content shoots.
Sensible involvement would be from the beginning - before methodology, locations and sets are locked. However, projects can sometimes be won late in the day - I’m happy to be sent a script alongside a plane ticket and will gladly pickup the responsibility from there.
I have an absolute understanding of the Client, Agency, Production and Post dynamic, through which I navigate with the calmness of experience.
In brief - I have 20+ years experience in VFX and Editorial post production followed by several years full time Independent Supervision. My diverse knowledge and experience spans tv drama production supervision, independent film, countless TV spots, music videos, title sequences, tv comedy, channel branding and idents- significant roles include Editor, VFX artist, VFX department head and VFX Supervisor (show side and post side).
I began in the industry at film camera rental company Joe Dunton Cameras - working in the 'video' department which supplied feature film and commercials shoots. I was JDC's location film projectionist too - a highlight was reviewing dailies for James Cameron’s 'Aliens'.
After a brief spell training at college I began in Soho London as an Edit Assistant, working my way to Editor/VFX Artist at Framestore - as the digital world took over from the analogue. At that time, if you showed ability you got the job! - so I worked on a broad range of genres across vfx/editorial/design: Commercials, Comedy ( eg Spitting Image), Music Videos, Channel Branding, Idents and Title Sequences. I was lead 2D artist and adviser on the pilot for 'Walking with Dinosaurs'. During this time digital VFX in post production was in its infancy; we were all learning as the software wasn't the complete tool set it is now, so problem solving and innovation were core skills.
Much later, as a Senior VFX Supervisor and Flame Artist I managed a succession of VFX Departments in boutique post companies, bringing in business, advising clients, attending shoots, empowering artists and encouraging juniors. I am credited on many TV Dramas and several independent films.
9 years ago I left working in post production, found an agent and became an independent VFX Supervisor for TV Drama and Advertising. Two years ago I decided to solely focus on Advertising and Digital content.
I am available worldwide.
