Filming and Editing

Capturing music and concert performance is my speciality but I also produce promos, conference filming, live streams and interactive content.

I won a GoPro Edit Award for a music video for Perhap Contraption and was approached by GoPro to make content for them using their cameras and musical instrument mounts.

A video I filmed won La République Internationale Des Arts’s “Paracosm” contest.

I produced one of the first virtual reality installations in the UK for Aldeburgh Festival featuring the BBC Symphony Orchestra, installing it in a red phone box to open up access to classical music.

I use video cameras made by Canon, Sony, Panasonic and GoPro and edit with FCPX and Adobe Premiere.
