Highly versatile online editor and colourist and trainer with experience in graphics, compositing, grading, film and DI.
In recent years I've handled everything from 35mm film scans to Canon 5DmkII, HDCam-EX, Alexa and RED files. I've delivered programmes for film print, DCP, web video and stereo-3D HDCam-SR.
I've performed the conform, grade and online (and made any stereo-3D adjustments) for these, usually using Quantel Pablo(Rio) as well as FCP, Premiere Pro, Avid and After Effects and DaVinci Resolve.
Trained as an engineer at the BBC, colour-balancing studio cameras and telecine, I moved into graphics and post-production where I quickly progressed to Supervisory Operator. I ran the Quantel Editbox suite in BBC News and Current Affairs and have since moved onto Avid|DS and Quantel eQ/Pablo, and more recently SGO Mistika and DaVinci Resolve, working on promos, ads, feature films, dramas and documentaries.
I've worked on countless items for programmes like Newsnight, Panorama, Politics Show, Daily Politics, music videos such as Kanye West, Mumford & Sons, The Macabbees, promos for Channel Five and Sky and adverts for T-Mobile, Mazda, Pontins and Sunday Express. In addition to my work as an editor and colourist, I've also led workshops on workflows and grading at BBC TV News, London Film School and Kingston University and Dartmouth College and I'm a DaVinci Resolve trainer for FMC Training, Boston and have done bespoke training for HBO, NYC.
