The last 12 months have been a very exciting and fruitful time for me. Forging a career as a freelancer in a competitive and rapidly changing industry has not been an easy process but 2015 proved to be the year when it became evident that a lot of the hard work and risk taking was starting to pay off. As I look back over the last year I certainly feel blessed to have worked on some fantastic projects with some incredible people. Here is a quick look at my highlights from 2015:
A last minute job in May had me climbing mountains in the Lake District for flycreative who were producing a video for the Walking with the Wounded charity. Filming beautiful views and promoting a fantastic cause - this job was the perfect example of why I chose to work in this industry.
June saw me take a little trip to the beautiful city of Paris for a 3 day corporate shoot with the United Magic Studios team. We even spoke a little French while we were there.
September saw me take off for the longest and furthest days filming ever, getting cutaways for an insurance company in sunny Gibraltar.
October saw a return to Manchester with the lovely bunch at Linn Systems for their annual eCommerce workshops.
So, what's happening in 2016?
My first collaboration with talented Brighton filmmaker Daniel Harding (otherwise known as 23 1/2 films) will be released this year, a short film project titled 'Toast'. If you haven't checked out Daniel's work I suggest you do so here.
I'll be taking some trips to London to produce video content for financial services company Helm Godfrey.
I'll be blogging about all things video production over at flycreative. Cameras, lighting, you name it; it'll all be there.
