I'VE WORKED CLOSELY WITH...

Valley

THE AA

Camera / Drone Team

Television Commercial

Working in the camera department for the brand new AA advert, broadcast at the end of 2021 and into the New Year, various locations were filmed in order to get the required shots to match the storyboard.

So far the video has had over 60, 000 YouTube views, and likely millions more on TV.

PRETTY GREEN

Camera / Drone Team

Television Commercial

Directed by the man who works very closely with Louis Tomlinson, the brand new summer advert for Liam Gallagher's fashion brand, filmed in January and aired in February, was a lot of fun to work on!

Approaching 30, 000 YouTube views in less than two months, the production involved many vehicles, including a Drone!

OPERA NORTH

Camera Operator

Opera North's Fidelio Livestream

Broadcast LIVE from Leeds Town Hall, Beethoven's Fidelio was performed by the mind-blowing talent of Opera North. Filmed on Sony 3500s, I operated one of 6 cameras while following a shooting script with shots called by the script supervisor and cut live by BAFTA award-winning Director Peter Maniura.

The event was streamed to the Opera North's ON DEMAND website due to the lack of live audience due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Director: Peter Maniura

Camera Supervisor: Keith Jacobsen

Corrie Set 2

ITV STUDIOS

Camera Operator

ITV Corrie: Race to the Rovers LIVE

Jason Manford presented this online event during the Coronavirus Pandemic to attract a younger audience to Coronation Street on ITV. My role was to operate and focus one of the main cameras, positioned on the famous Street while four famous faces from the programme battled against each other to win the show.

The online event attracted over 10,000 unique viewers and ran for one hour. I also set up the camera for Jason Manford, which was locked off due to social distancing measures.

Directed by: Claire Hoang, Digital Executive Producer for ITV

TAILS.COM

Camera Team

Tails.com All Creatures Great and Small

Hired by a very experienced camera operator I met while focus pulling at BBC Casualty in 2021, who was very impressed with my ability to lead the camera team and perform my job in a technically efficient way, I operated on a recent social video for Tails.com.

This brand, a subsidiary of world renowned Nestle, which turned over close to £70 billion in 2021, is a fast-growing dog-food company with a strong social media presence and soon to be market leading.

The video was filmed at an animal sanctuary in Newport, Wales.

SKY NEWS

Camera Operator

Vote 2017

Sky General Election

As part of a team of nationwide experienced camera professionals, I operated for coverage of the UK General Election of 2017 with Sky. The constituency I covered was Halifax in West Yorkshire and sustained a live broadcast feed to Sky News throughout the night.

The feed was broadcast to a Sky News Gallery via a LiveU LU600 field unit for portable video transmission, which not only made it to the Sky News TV channel, but supplied an 8-hour feed to their official YouTube channel too.

FORDS OF WINSFORD

Lighting Cameraman

Fords of Winsford TV Ads

Fords of Winsford is the North West of England's largest car supermarket and has been going strong for decades.

A set of two adverts shot in a hired supermarket within 4 hours including re-dressing of the aisles and lighting. For efficiency, I lit the environment flat with Kino Flos. I shot the supermarket sections with a Sony FS7 under the direction of the Producer's storyboard. Creative input was welcome. Broadcast prime time on ITV.
