I spent a large part of my very early career from my teens as freelance Graphic Designer, producing corporate identity, logos and layouts for print publishing.
I still produce all manner of 2D Design and advertising materials such as books, DVD covers or high quality pitch and promotional packs for clients such as Bedlam Productions (The King’s Speech, Kajaki: The True Story)
At University I studied “Design for Film & Television” where I specialised in Video Graphics, Animation and Editing. Compositing using Quantel Paintbox and Adobe After Effects, and editing using linear suites and Non-Linear edit suites including Avid and LightWorks. I still do a lot of image repair work, removing objects and compositing.
As an offline editor, online editor, and colourist, I continue to work on all the latest NLEs such as Adobe Premiere (since 1991), Avid (since 1994), Apple Final Cut Pro (since 1999), and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
I provide creative media services and also training for a variety of applications. In addition I can provide a technical consultancy service for troubleshooting, purchase decisions and workflow.
Some of my specialties include: Design, Direction, Editing, Animation, Teaching, Camera, DVD/Blu-ray Authoring, workflow consultancy, design and management.
Loud & Fast was a nickname I had bestowed on me during my ‘tweenties’ – I’ll leave it up to the reader to imagine why – and is my trading name for my freelance career.
