Please see the "Video Production" qualifications for an overview of my production skills.
I shot 35mm motion picture film for broadcast promotions and corporate communications for a period of 15 years before transitioning to video production. The nature of this film work included photographing "tabletop" product shots for clients such as Canon Cameras and Paramount Pictures. I also worked in Hollywood as a motion graphic animation director, building and using robotic cameras for special visual effects work and in-camera compositing for graphic animation. This led to a freelance stint at Industrial Light and Magic, where I worked on six feature films as an optical cameraman.
I am a producer with over a decade of experience creating video content for clients like Sony and HP. My hands-on skills include being an expert lighting cameraman and a very proficient editor who is facile with the Adobe CS suite.
My production know-how includes: project management, lighting, camera operation, video and audio editing, motion graphics production, DVD authoring and video compression.
As a producer, I have personally shepherded scores of long form digital media projects through all aspects of the creative and business process. These include all production related steps from the initial client contact to final deliverables.
The proof is in the pudding. My video productions solved business problems for stakeholders and yielded outcomes such as increasing customer response by a verified 500% and facilitating government approval of a medical process.
