Guest lectures at Central Film School

I’ve been invited to present guest lectures, practical workshops and project invigilation at the Central Film School in London for the Advanced Post Producton component of their BA Practical Filmmaking Course.

At this stage, the students are in the second year of their studies, and are taught fundamental pre- and post production methods of VFX compositing.

‘Dolled Up’ Barbie by Sophia Webster

This was the first time I worked with scanned 8mm footage. I loved the feel of the short film, and had to find a way of working with the colours in a way that complemented the aesthetic, not covered it up.


A Woman’s Day #throughglass

I was approached to work on a PSA that would lead the audience into thinking they were watching a Google Glass advert. As I had no access to the device, I had to research Google Glass interface graphics and animations for a few days to recreate and compile the elements needed for the video from scratch.


Entomophobia – In Violet

Worked with hours of stock footage to assemble the edit for director Robin Rippman’s Entomophobia music video for London-based band In Violet. The 3D graphic elements were created by Alex Piglowski and rigged by Dan Lavi.

It won ‘Best European Independent Music Video’ at The European Independent Film Festival and ‘Best Music Video’ at the Mexico International Film Festival in 2015.


Global Game Jam 2013

My students and I spent a weekend at SAE Institute London covering the madness that is Global Game Jam. In this fantastic event, game developers are given just 48 hours to come up with, code, and release a working game! Much sleep was lost; many poor eating habits exhibited.

This is also an example of what happens when an editor is given carte blanche on the choice of music. I picked three tracks I thought did the event justice and had fun mixing them in this 5 minute clip.
