Area Covered: Surrey,London,Bristol,Wales,Gloucester,Birmingham
Work Experience Summary: The majority of my working career has been in the broadcast & corporate industry, creating titles, promotional sequences, stings, and general motion graphics. I have an extensive knowledge of physical and computer special effects, compositing, direction and model making. When given a commission I tend to work from concept to finished sequence by myself (once my client has approved the design), so most of my work is undertaken in my studio at home (South Wales). Despite this I am equally happy to run with given ideas and work as a part of a team on site. I do have a London & Surrey base to work from if required.
I work on a daily basis using Adobe Aftereffects, photoshop, illustrator and have some skills with Lightwave 3d. As well as motion/print graphics, I can direct, film and edit short sequences. I have had an extensive working relationship with many designers, directors, model makers, 3d/2d animators, editors and musicians throughout the Broadcast industry, and can call upon them should a commission need additional input or skills.
Recent projects I have completed which have required a whole range of diverse skills include:
Over the past four consecutive years I have been involved in the development of on screen promotional animations, menuÃƒ’¯, sprites, design and the construction of various numbers games screened regularly in betting offices throughout the country and via satellite broadcast.
Client Extreme Target Golf Ltd.
The development of an urban sport concept which is now in manufacture: the project is named Extreme Target Golf or XTG.The work so far completed to date has given me an extensive knowledge of creating and promoting an idea from concept through to retail manufacture.

Other topics covered, copyright, trademark, patent registration, manufacturing techniques, import & export. XTG is due to be launched in the near future.
