Videography London

Video Producer - Higher Education 

 

My background in video production started in 2007 whilst working as a Marketing Officer for London Metropolitan University. I undertook a short course in video production at the university as part of my professional training which lead me to take responsibility as the lead producer of both internal and external video communications.

 

Throughout my time there I produced hundreds of videos including:

  • testimonials from staff, students and alumni

  • explainer videos on how to enrol at the university

  • advice videos on how to find accommodation, manage student finances and apply for jobs

  • teaser videos to encourage interest in various subject areas

  • internal communication videos to disseminate changes in working practices

Freelance Videographer

I carry the many skills from my time as a Marketing officer to my present role as a freelance videographer, including:

  • Project management - excellent organizational skills having managed  a variety of resources including camera operators, editors, programmers and designers to successfully deliver large-scale video communications projects on time and within budget

  • Excellent interpersonal skillseffectively working closely with CEOs, Senior management teams, and staff at all levels of the organization. Encouraging participation in video projects and providing training and advice on presentation skills

  • Script-writing and development working closely with academic staff to ensure that technical information is presented in a comprehensive manner and appropriate for the target audience

  • Interview skills - researching the subject matter prior to the shoot, setting the talent at ease and encouraging a confident and articulate delivery

  • Locations - negotiating and obtaining film permissions for a variety of iconic London locations, including the Tate Modern, the South Bank Centre, the Golden Hinde, V&A Museum of Childhood, Westfield shopping centre, the Barbican, the London Eye and the Royal Institution

  • Technical skills - studio lighting techniques and camera skills using the university's purpose-built studios and a variety of Canon camera equipment including the Canon C300

  • Editing skills - ensuring that a comprehensive narrative forms the basis of an engaging visual experience that is targeted and appropriate to the target audience.

Video Equipment

 

I use Lumix cameras with low light capabilities and image stabilization filming broadcast quality 4K/UHD, which allows for greater scope in post-production and facilitates the production of high quality photos from video if required.

Footage can be supplied to any required format or resolution. 

I have  a variety of rigging options including a shoulder rig, 2 tripods and a monopod. I also have a 3 axis motorized gimbal stabilizer and motorized slider for or smooth motion shots - see 'As we step into chaos' above for example footage. For events if required I can film above audience head height using a tripod extender and portable riser.

 

My lighting kit includes 3 LED lighting panels, a portable video light and a Fresnel LED spotlight.

To record audio for interviews I have a lavalier clip mic for wireless audio capture, but also have a shotgun mic and condenser mic to cover all other possible situations. I can also take an audio feed from a venue's audio desk to my field recorder and also have my own 18 channel digital recording desk for live performance recording.
