Through numerous years of education in the U.K and a brief, yet enlightening two months study in the U.S.A, I have curated a series of skillsets and abilites that will allow me to reach the end goal you desire. I have persued film as a solo filmmaker as well as part of a larger team. I am a cofounder of Dead Frog Productions, a small Leicester based production company. I have overseen, collaborated with and even acted in a few of the shorts. Forever working on my craft, even during my sparetime, my abilities are continuously improving.
Below you will find a list of areas I am confident in and my Showreel can be found here.
Forever coming up with new ideas and stories, I am proficient in crafting scripts for adverts and short films of any genre. I primarilly use Arc Studio Pro but I am very adaptable to new software.
Directing allows me to use my people skills to the full extent. I will find and film the best possible result for whichever project I am working on. Focusing strongly on the tone and atmosphere of the project, a clear, creative and strong final product will be achieved.
Editing can make or break a project, but thanks to my previous experience and forever improving skillset, you need not worry. I am exceedily proficient in Final Cut, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and After Effects.
In terms of Post Production, the final touches can push a project from good to great. Thanks to my experience with several editing softwares, I can give a project that final boost it might need.
Listed below are a number of the Short Films I have been involved in throughout the years. They showcase my ability as a director, editor, camera operator and small role acting. The projects vary in tone and I have specified which areas I worked on primarily for each of them.

This is my latest showreel and showcases the best moments of the many films and projects listed.
As part of the 'Cliffhanger Project', my short film 'The Sheriff' was used as the start of a collaborative, 3 piece short film experiment. I was given the genre of Western, and was tasked with creating the first part of a larger short film. The final 10 seconds were then clipped and sent to the second participant who had to create the next part, with their own genre, carrying on from only those 10 seconds. This was then repeated for the final participant and each person only had 1 week to produce their final segment.
This was a great exercise in time keeping, collaboration and creativity. It highlights my ability to work to a brief.
