Video Cameraman & Video Camera

Production Skills

I bring 15 years of experience of being behind the camera, editing and managing projects from initial brief through to project sign off.

Pre
Production

Getting the project up and running correctly:

  • Client / Stakeholder briefings

  • Production management

  • Scripting and Storyboarding

  • Crew sourcing

  • Equipment sourcing

  • Location sourcing

  • Scheduling and logistics

  • Budget management

  • Voice-over sourcing and direction

 

Most of my projects kick off with me talking directly to the client stakeholder or a member of the the communications/marketing team.

My job is to obtain an understanding of the brief and translate it into a successful production.

 

Pre production is not always a big part of projects depending on the scale and complexity. That would just be using up time and budget we don't have.

 

It is important to be pragmatic and being flexible enough to work with whatever time and budget constraints come up. At the moment I am working on a project that we had to film before we even had the script and storyboard. We shot footage of everything from every different angle because we wouldn't be able to come back. It is not always easy but we always make it work.

Software
Production
This stage demands many hats:
  • Producer

  • Client liaison

  • Camera operator (inc lighting and audio)

  • Managing crew

  • Managing shoot list

  • Camera Assist

 

As you will see from my behind the scenes page I work on a range of different projects that can find me working alone as a single camera op one day to managing a crew and complex shoot lists the next.

 

I have had the opportunity to work with an extensive range of cameras and camera rigs but my go to cameras are the C100 / C300 and Sony FS7.

 

I love the variety and enjoy the challenge and the reward of seeing projects through from concept to being on location with a camera in hand.

 

Projects I am often involved in are:

  • Staff profile video

  • Internal company announcement videos,

  • External promo videos,

  • internal product marketing videos,

  • Graduate recruitment videos,

  • Company training (sales enablement)

  • Bid support videos

  • Special topics

POST
PRODUCTION
Time to bring it all together

 

I love the fact that I can come back to base armed with content from a great shoot knowing I have the job to pull it all together.

 

All my post production is based around the Adobe Creative Suite:

 

  • Adobe Premiere Pro

  • Adobe After Effects

  • Adobe Audition

  • Adobe Media Encoder

 

The client reviews are achieved through a combination of Vimeo and/or Wipster. 

 

I enjoy the ability to integrate video between Prem Pro and AE especially when developing motion graphic elements. I am currently working on a project to place the video display in an animated 3D space which also incorporates text and infographics.
