About Gareth

I would ultimately like to build a career as an Academic, in addition to continuing as a practicing professional in the Film, Television and Video Industries, using my various qualifications, skills and enthusiasm for innovative storytelling. I believe that my unwavering passion for the industry and lecturing, combined with my strong educational background, proficiency in a variety of industry positions and my experience as a Lecturer, make me a valuable asset to any company or tertiary institution. I am a perfectionist at heart with a desire to continue my education by learning about industry positions I am still unfamiliar with in addition to completing my Doctorate over the coming years. I would very much like to continue along this path and introduce this wonderful and rewarding industry to a younger generation. I am proficient in Screenwriting, Directing, Producing, Photography, Digital Cinematography, Lighting, Video Editing, Motion Graphics, Data Management, Color Grading, On Set Sound Recording, Sound Design, Sound Mixing, Foley and ADR Recording.
