My Career

My career encompasses various creative roles in the creation of high end commercials, broadcast programmes and feature films. I have over 20 years experience in the media industry and an in-depth knowledge of both production and post-production.

I was a founding member of the AMV BBDO’s in-house post-production department, Digital Lab, where I was a Team Leader and Visual effects supervisor working on commercials for major brands including Walkers, Sainsbury's, Mars, Guinness and Homebase.

Prior to joining AMV BBDO I was a Senior Flame/Shake Artist at MPC, The Mill and Glassworks working on commercials, films and broadcast projects with, among others, Harald Zwart, Michael Fueter, Annand Tucker, Chris Oxley, Ridley Scott, Mark Denton, Traktor and Nick Lewin.

My film credits include ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows’, ‘Never Let Me Go’, 'Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets', 'Troy' and 'Babe-Pig in the City'. I was part of the Millfilm's Visual Effects team on Ridley Scott's 'Gladiator' that won an Oscar for Visual Effects.

My broadcast credits include 'Virtual History' for the Discovery Channel, that won the VFX Society Award for Outstanding Visual Effects.

I have also art directed and designed for many television promotions, title sequences, commercials, stings, idents and content graphics for the BBC, Sky, Channel4 and ITV, for which I won a number of awards, two of which were Golden Promaxes.

I have also given talks on post-production at Ravensbourne and Metropolitan universities and was a Compositing tutor at Escape Studios.

My articles on post-production have been published in the Showreel magazine.

I am the author of the book ‘How to Get Into and Survive Film, Advertising and TV Post-production – The Alternative Guide’.
