Film/AudioEditing & FX
Using Adobe's Premier Pro, After Effects and Audition I am able to edit audio and video, create special effects and overlays, turn raw footage into DVD's and create content for social media outlets such as YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. Along with the Adobe suite I also use Autodesk 3DS Max for 3D modelling, allowing for pre-visualisation, 3D story boarding and CGI special effects and enhancements.
I've worked on multiple client projects, creating vignettes and short adverts to promote their businesses via social media.
Around December and January I edit footage to make DVD's for a dance school's annual show and a local nursery nativity, which are then cold on to parents and carers.
As well as client work I've also created short films as part of my degree in Interactive Media while at university, writing scripts, story boarding, budgeting, directing, operating audio and video equipment, editing and promoting. I am currently working on a short story which will hopefully be filmed later this year.
There are some examples of my work below, I will hopefully be able to add more to this portfolio once I have permission from various clients..

Helga Weiss - A Tale From Terezín
This was a project to make a short animation between 30 seconds and 5 minutes. The subject was based on an exhibition of children's drawings and paintings entitled 'Through Children's Eyes: The Holocaust Paintings from Terezín'
I chose to base my animation on the Diary of Helga Weiss, a very moving account of a young girls experiences of the various concentration and internment camps during the second world war. I would have liked a chance to add some dialog and tidy up the various areas of the animation but the deadline didn't allow.
