About me

I am a highly accomplished VFX Supervisor with a long history in Post Production, available worldwide for Global Advertising and Digital content shoots. I work in production, but bring all the understanding of post production with me.

In brief - I have 20+ years in VFX and Editorial post production followed by several years full time Independent Supervising. I have considerable experience in Advertising, TV Drama, Comedy and Independent Film. Significant roles have included Editor, VFX artist, then VFX department head and VFX Supervisor. My breadth of work spans music videos, title sequences, tv comedy, channel branding and idents, tv drama production supervision, independent film, and countless TV commercials.

I bring an absolute understanding and ability to navigate Client, Agency, Production Co and Post Prod Co relationships. I work with the knowledge that I am working together with production and that my role is one part of the process. I now work solely on advertising and digital content, solely in production - I bring with me this wealth of ability, with the calmness of experience.

My expectation is to become involved early, at the latest towards the end of prep or at the tech scout.

History

I began in the industry at film camera rental company Joe Dunton Cameras - working in the 'video' department which supplied film and commercials shoots. I was JDC's location film projectionist too - a highlight was reviewing dailies for 'Aliens' when the film was shooting on location in London.

After a brief spell training at college I began in London's Soho 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.
