For as long as I can remember, my creative mind has been ticking overtime. As a kid I grew up with a paintbrush in hand and a camera over my shoulder. I graduated with an arts degree in film school in 2008 and ever since have produced and edited video content and photography of all types. My knowledge of media and storytelling has steadily strengthened over the years and my filmography now ranges from documentaries and short films to music videos, promotional material and training videos. I have also been hired for my art skills, doing small bits of design work and touch ups for web and print.
As a tech junkie, excited about the future of digital, I am constantly reading up on the latest digital trends, and ways to simplify our lives with software. I have sat in on marketing meetings for clients as my knowledge of what can and can't be done with media in the modern digital world has been of use when brainstorming brand campaigns.
Music also inspires me, and keeps me saving up for the next big festival or live show. I watch tons of live gigs and take pride in my knowledge of bands and DJ's most people havent heard of. Shooting and editing music videos and live performances is a passion of mine.
Shutterspace, a production company and Cape Town blog I co-founded in 2012, became the base of operations for my foray into film and photography. I designed the website to showcase and build a brand around my work. I also wrote for the blog.
I have a full working knowledge of the Adobe Creative suite. I generally shoot and light my own material. I have shot on film, broadcast camera's and DSLR's. I have worked to briefs with small budgets and have come up with good ideas on my own working to almost no budget.TOP OF PAGE
This short video showcases my skills behind the camera as well as some of my editing and post production knowledge. My ever growing library of video content has covered music videos, short films, live events, corporate videos and timelapse photography. I pride myself in getting quality content and as a creative director have the technical experience to understand what it takes to turn a brief into a creative, engaging, and exciting product while working within a tight and often restricting budget.
