I studied at Edinburgh Napier University, where I gained a B.A. in Photography and Film. Whilst there, I worked on the Ash documentary "Evil Eye", which was released on their Japanese tour DVD. I then studied Digital Effects at The National Film and Television School, graduating with an MA in 2015. One of my many projects there was "The Bigger Picture" a BAFTA winning, Oscar nominated Animation Film, on which I was the digital compositor.
Other films that I worked on that have got nominated for a Student Oscars are “North” which is set Isolated on a farm in Island and fighting against his family's decision, Aaron struggles to be heard as he watches his mother willingly die. “Group B” starring Richard Madden (Game of Thrones). Set 1986, the peak of high-octane Group B rally driving. Known for its incredibly dangerous off-road races, notorious for lack of crowd control, and some of the most powerful and sophisticated cars the world has ever seen. Rally driver Shane Hunter (Madden) is facing his comeback to Group B competition after a long and troubled absence.
I have also work on very powerful and emotive documentaries one of these, Esta Vida (This Life) is a vivid portrait depicting the lives of a group of young girls, who have experienced a lifetime of loss, rejection and abuse. From a small Brazilian town, where they've been sexually exploited, their only beacon of hope is Meninadanca. It's a safe haven and social project where they can dance, be free and feel empowered. It's run by Rita, a child advocate who fights the system to rescue the girls from a life on the streets, while the girls themselves fight for survival with courage and optimism.
During my time at the school I also colour graded and online edited over 50 films. In the summer of 2014, I worked at Pinewood Post Production in the Restoration team colour grading the films.
Following graduation, I colour graded a feature film called “The Pass” for Duncan Kenworthy OBE (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually). I also colour graded and online edited a short Film commissioned by Channel Four called “Metaphysiques”. I am currently working at Envy Post Production, one of the biggest post houses in Europe.
