In what is a world first for Athletics presentation, the IAAF is working with Visual Edge Media and Creative Technology to produce a projection mapping experience for every track final. I’m working closely with them to shoot and edit content for the show, liaising with host broadcasters, and creating a behind the scenes documentary of the whole project.
Currently on tour directing cameras for Bastille until September. Had some great shows, including the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury!
I was post production coordinator on this adaption of a Karcher Pressure washer TVC. Vanity Brothers were tasked with updating an old advert with the new device model. With a re shoot at black island and plenty of after effects compositing. We seamlessly brought the new model into the old commercial..
Before/After - one of my after effects composites.
Before Christmas I created a series of 8 animations for Godiva’s social media campaign. Via Vanity Brothers.
I teamed up with Above and Beyond to create a Christmas timelapse for Mcvities social media. Via Vanity Brothers.
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!

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.
