As a visual effects specialist I provide creative, technical and production expertise for feature film, broadcast, commercial and corporate projects in the UK and overseas.
I have extensive experience of working with clients from pre-production - devising visual effects, breakdowns and costing - through to delivery, including directing, on-set supervision, planning and problem solving, managing post-production schedules and co-ordinating teams in various locations. I also enjoy the creative challenges of low budget projects where unconventional solutions and adaptability are required. I regularly work with international and local crews and have proven success in finding practical solutions to creative challenges at short notice on location. I have managed and mentored technical and creative teams.
