Here is an ident I created to animate my logo. I had fun working with foley sounds too.
A compilation of all the work I have done during my time at Edinburgh College studying HND Television.
Major Project - Edinburgh College 2013
Camera: JVC GY-HD 110
Editing: Premiere Pro CS6
VFX and Compositing: After Effects
This video shows the makeup tests for the Damage project.
My first project at the minor phase of my course studying Television at Edinburgh College.
My brother is a singer, songwriter and I filmed and edited this music video for his song 'Imprint'.
I have taken part in numerous work placements from Editorial Assistant/ Runner at a Post Production House such as 'Freakworks' and '2020 Productions',
to working as a crew member at Wickerman Music Festival at the South West of Scotland. I was even lucky enough to work as a Floor runner on "Sunshine on Leith" a feature film.
From these experiences, I have gained valuable skills such as team work,
communication and working in high pressure environments. Check out what I learned by clicking on the tabs below.
