I have worked as a freelance videographer and producer for over four years which allowed me to put my skills in to practice in a variety of ways. I am director for Broken Barrel Productions, producing a lot of my work under this company name. More information can be found in the menu bar above, or through this link:
Currently I am working on exciting projects with friends and businesses alike. I have been collaborating with other producers and artists to create some interesting video productions and generate ideas.
I hold a BSc Hons Degree in Video Audio Engineering and I work in the areas of production and post production. This includes cameraman work, dvd productions, web videos, documentaries, weddings and events.
I edit with Adobe Premiere CS5.5 (64bit), and Adobe After Effects for chroma keying, graphics and colour grading. A lot of my work involves DVD and Bluray authoring, using Adobe Photoshop layers and After Effects for animated DVD/Bluray menus.
I have a lot of experience with high definition HDV and HD camcorders, and more recently using 35mm DOF adapters on those camcorders. Currently I have moved into the new and exciting realms of HDSLR camera HD video recording; specifically the Panasonic GH2 using hacked firmware and high bitrate patches. This has made me pay close attention to the use of prime and zoom lenses, F stops and focal length.
