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.
