I love content that encourages talkablity. Maybe because I love to talk…
After a number of years working for Sky’s awesome lineup of channels, launching series and and cutting cross channel brand spots, I’ve recently joined Sky’s Product and Brand. Here, I get to creatively direct the Bigger Picture team and define how we talk about our many programs, from Sky Academy to Sky Rainforest Rescue to Sky Sports Living for Sport. In addition, I work across many of our other products and services, such as Now TV, Sky Sports Apps, Sky Go, Sky 3D, to drop a few names. This can mean on air spots, digital content, radio or print campaigns, and when we’re a bit more flush, an whole 360 campaign. Love those.
What this means is I’m an Editor, Director, Creative, Producer and sometimes even a Designer. Many hats fit my head, but no matter which one I wear, I always strive to create effective, memorable creative content worth talking about.
Before this I spent time at ITV where I learned to cut promos, and at Fox, where I learned how to make them even better, as well as delving into the digital world of VOD and online series. Here, in addition to creating on air promos, I promoted and managed on-demand programmes, edited viral content, created mobile series, marketed online series like TheCell.tv or work in creative teams to create fun interactive sites like NoSignalTv.com and iPad Magazines like Virgin’s Electric Mag. Thanks to all that, I know some techie stuff, which is why I am a pro at Final Cut Pro, Avid, Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop. Plus I’ve turned my hand to Flash, Pro Tools and web languages like HTML and CSS.
But my first love is directing and cutting promos. I would love the opportunity to take my particular brand of skills and bring them to the company you represent. I come with terrific references, all of which commend my problem solving skills and ‘can-do’ attitude. Take a look at my showreel, my resume and then if you’re interested drop me a line!
