Experienced Producer / Director
Listed as a Broadcast Hotshot delegate in 2019 , I am a confident and experienced Producer Director.
My most notable credit to date is Series Producer and Director of the 6 X 30 mins series for BBC Scotland , Fish Town in 2019. On this project I managed a small core team and hired individuals where required for fishing trips. I was able to demonstrate great multi tasking skills as the edit was running along side production so I had to constantly flip between Series Producing, Edit Producing and self shooting /Directing. This content of this series also showcases the kind of programming I enjoy , documenting the lives of normal people and giving them a platform to tell their story. I like the puzzle of turning their story into an enjoyable watch for the audience using different camera style , genres and formats.
Throughout my career I have shown a real skill for gaining and maintaining institutional access. Particularly in NHS trusts, Police Units and communities. As a result I am experienced in dealing with sensitive genre, constructing story and managing legal and compliance issues that arise.
I am competent self shooter on the FS7 . I have shot and directed on a variety of factual genres from obs doc to features and recently shot and directed a scripted comedy pilot for BBC Scotland. I also have experience directing crew on multi cam and single camera shoots.
I am a strong Producer so thrive in an environment where I am able to start a project early, establish the set up and logistics and go on to shape the style and content. Bringing with me a Directing element I am able to balance both on screen and off screen limitations. I don't just care about the story or the visuals , I care about the full package and work hard to make sure everyone involved in delivering that package has a good experience from contributors to staff members.
I truly believe that our industry has a long way to go in improving the lifestyle for its workforce and I am an active voice in trying to realise that I change. Outside of work I have a love for the outdoors where I often find myself completing various adventure challenges and races.
