Currently employed by Cambridge University in the Department of Material Sciences and Metallurgies, as an Electron Micscrocpist and a E-beam specialist.
Since 2006 I have been formulating Mediascape Productions Ltd with Co-Director and Non Linear Editor, Daniel Griggs. In its brief existence, The Company has produced two multi-award wining films "In the shadows of the light" in 2007 which alone three awards, and "The parking place" in 2010 which obtained thirteen nominations and won eight awards world wide. The Company has also produced some corporate videos for professional organizations, along with editing and production help on some music videos. All these creations are brought together by young and talented team.
Mediascape Productions Limited's vision is to encourage the flair and imagination of the younger generation, encouraging them to make short and feature length film productions. To this end, we offer young people the opportunity to fill a position in a film production environment, and ultimately supply the talent of the future. We provide this service to young people of all diverse abilities.
I am therefore pleased to be associated with the Angel Film Awards whose outlook is to promote non-violent films and encourage new, young and mature film making talent whose work is show cased in the glitzy, prestigious surroundings of Monaco. I therefore am pleased to represent The Angel Film Awards here in Great Britain and promote the young talented film maker.
Co-founder, Co-director & Non-Linear Editor of Mediascape Productions Ltd.
Since 2004 I have been working with film, from what started as small student projects quickly grew in to larger scale and complex productions. I studied Moving Image and Photography at Cambridge Regional College, a centre of excellence in academic arts, earning myself a National Diploma. Since its inception in 2006, Mediascape Productions Limited has produced two feature films and a couple of promotional videos, as well as providing a "turn-to" support for a number of external productions that needed help and guidance. Both of our feature films are multi-award winning, spanning different genres and have been warmly received by critics worldwide. The first, "In the Shadows of the Light" a 2006 experimental film deals with tragedy and love in an unconventional way. The film has a narrative entirely set to the music of the group Enigma. This film won 3 awards in 2006. Our second and most successful to date is "The Parking Place" a 2010 situation comedy based on two characters that do whatever it takes to secure the one free parking space remaining in a car park riddled with limited parking facilities. This film alone received thirteen nominations and eight awards. Both of our productions have acquired and promoted from young to mature talent, from amateur to professional.
I myself work on behalf of the company not only as co-founder and Non-linear editor, but I also double as a our own Camera Operator and sound technician and also specialise in all aspects of post-production. I also teach Final Cut Studio, camera techniques and basic shot composition to those who which to partake in their own productions. Our vision is to promote young talent, from stage to screen by helping them reach their goals, whether that is in front or behind the camera, we aim to support people of all diversities.
The Company has gained a lot of recognition in recent months, a lot of which has come from promoting The Company and the young talent it represents at the various international film festivals we visited with our latest creation "The Parking Place" whose success has surpassed our wildest expectations. I am therefore on behalf of myself and The Company honoured to be associated with the Angel Film Awards, Monaco, a truly prestigious festival celebrating the creation of non-violent international films and their associated filmmakers in the glorious surroundings of Monaco.
