Been doing some little stereoscopic edits for Brian May as he completes a 10 day stretch in Vegas with Queen. He was even nice enough to thank me by name on social media!
Just spent a few days directing cameras for Bastille on their tour through festivals in Switzerland, France and Spain.
Another year at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships with Vanity Brothers making content for Evian. This year our presenters were somewhat younger than normal. I manned the B camera and cut the edits each day.
Been working for a while on four different Right Guard animations for broadcast on ITV hub around the shows Love Island, Towie and Real Housewives. And for a change I also drew all the illustrations, learning lots more about Adobe illustrator in the process.
Just finished editing this commercial for Mcvities, shot down in Cornwall by Vanity Brothers.
Found myself shooting one of my old favourites, Jamiroquai, for two nights at the O2 for Rob Currie at Visual Edge Media. Being on stage with the band shooting on RED was one of my best career moments so far.
As party of Benky Digital, I traveled to Florida with a RED cam and a new drone to shoot 5 destination executives across the state. Culminating in and exhausting edit and animation to produce a custom mapped piece for the Visit Florida UK banquet.
I was the onsite editor for Creative Technology at the World Championships, delivering over 40 edits over the 10 days including road to the final VTs and retirement dedications for Mo Farah and Usain Bolt. All played out in the stadium and across channels worldwide.
Just spent a week in Cannes for my first Lions festival, covering the Youtube beach with a small team from the production company 'Above and Beyond'. Shooting and cutting 3 talks a day and contributing to daily sizzle edits. Nice to have our work tweeted by Google!
Just cut 18 different short form adverts for Right Guard. Broadcast on Sky One as sponsorship bumpers for the James Corden show 'A League of Their Own'. Aslo did some sound work on set during the shoot. Production company: Vanity Brothers.
Had the pleasure of directing from Google's shiny new control room at their new St Pancreas HQ. Via Andy Boyle @ Above and Beyond.
Just created a promo for Bear Grylls new live tour. Working with Vanity Brothers and Visual Edge Media, I helped shoot and edit a short promo to promote the action packed new arena production.
Another successful year at the Wimbledon championships. This year we doubled Evian's targets getting 12 million views, over the 13 days. A punishing schedule of night editing, I delivered a new edit at 8:30am each morning. This year we had a great team, fun celebrities on the couch, and Murray winning!

Here's a behind the scenes look at what we got up to:
Had a great weekend at Glastonbury, cutting a sub mix of the BBC cameras for the West Holts Stage screens. Roisin Murphy, Underworld and Earth, Wind and Fire were among the highlights.
Continuing the tour visuals work, I just made a video via RMV Productions, for the artist Fleur East, for her track 'Baby Don't Dance'. Watch out for it on her UK tour over the summer.
Recently had the chance to make some tour visuals for the opera group, Il Divo, as they continue their world tour. Shot on Red dragon at 100fps and composited in after effects. Was a fun change to shoot something all on my own, with a tiny location and a couple of props.
Just completed this 'unboxing' advert for Universal music. Very happy with the smooth key-framing of the movements.
Just created some motion graphics assets and titles for two new shows on the Machinima channel on the Sony Playstation Vue network. 'Sandbox' is a show dedicated to the game Minecraft, and 'All Systems Go!' is an all around geek chat show. Creating a variety of elements from lower thirds & stings to transitions and titles, all based around one theme was great fun. Full Boat Productions in Hollywood, found my work on Vimeo, whilst looking for an animator who could work in a 'low poly' style.
Just flown over to Jersey with Video Design to direct cameras for a small festival featuring some big names. Rudimental continued their never ending festival appearances, along with The Vaccines, Clean Bandit and Years & Years. My highlight of the weekend was discovering 'Slaves' , such raw power for a two person act.
