About Justin

  • Share profile:
    I have over 14 years experience in the TV and video industry as a Producer,  Director, Director of Photography and Editor. The projects I've worked on include documentaries, music promos, corporate videos, worldwide viral campaigns, festivals and events both in Europe and the UK. I have an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the production process and am adept at working to tight deadlines and agreed budgets.

    As a producer and director, I've participated in numerous projects and am experienced in multi-camera studio and location production.

    As a DP/cameraperson, I'm skilled in HD and DSLR cameras (Canon 5D MKII/III and Canon 7D). I've also conducted many green screen lighting set-ups.

    As an editor, I'm highly skilled in Final Cut Pro and After Effects, with an excellent knowledge of keying, codecs and compression for broadcast, non-broadcast and web.

    I'm available as a self-shooting Producer/Director, DP/cameraperson, Final Cut editor and After effects motion graphics artist.
