Directing Interview.png

self shooting

Self-shooting has been part of my role on various projects and below are just a few examples, which showcase the variety of my work so far.

SEQUENCE/INTERVIEW FILMING EXAMPLES

A clip from the two-part documentary series on Concorde for Channel Five. Featuring some of my produced interviews & self-shot sequences. This example features legendary Concorde photographer Adrian Meredith, as he remembers the day the team made Concorde history on Christmas Eve.

ACTUALITY OB DOC FILMING

Example of my self-shooting/directing on Sony FS7 as well as showcasing my contributor casting.

The following is an example from the Discovery Network's series: Meet The Superbrains, a programme which I helped develop and then get commissioned whilst at Lime Pictures.

I was working closely with the self-shooting PD and the main camera crew to capture crucial moments of sync and key reactions during this test run on the Pendine Sands in Wales.

SEQUENCE SHOOTING

A further example from Meet The Superbrains featuring Maggie Lieu, who was hoping to join the Mars 20 Mission programme. Casting Maggie in the series during it's development stage I then worked with her and the team as we followed her incredible story as she was featured on the front page of one of Britain's biggest Newspapers. This is an example of my camerawork and self shooting following Maggie as she decides to make a huge decision in her life.
