Visual Effects Assistant

Whilst working for one year in an Animation company in Northampton named RJDM I was introduced to Compositing where I decided that was my main career goal.  Leaving the company I managed to gain some experience on set as a Visual Effects Assistant at Shepperton Studios and Pinewood on 'Eragon' and 'The Golden Compass'.  As a VFX Assistant at the heart of the productions I worked with the team in the Previs Department editing together small animations, I also took care of minor production needs especially if they were technical. Basic running duties were also part of this job.

Having gained an apprenticeship with Film & Television Freelance Training a course run by Screenskills I worked on many TV & Film Productions as a Camera Assistant.  On set I was able to load film into the cameras and can the rolls as well as help run the floor, the monitor for the Director and crew was also a big responsibility.

Working at Bravo Post in London my first position as a Runner after leaving University in Portsmouth duties included looking after the staff by supplying lunch and refreshments, running tapes around to other facilities and helping in the tape machine room.  In addition I learned a bit about Editing and Compositing.
