"Film is therapy."
Editor, Assistant Director
My goal is it achieve whatever the Director asks for in both production and postproduction.
The time I spent at Oxford Brookes gave me the skills to adapt to in dependent filming. These are skills that I have been honing over the past three years by applying them to the Raven Pictures productions.
I have found that it does not matter how big the budget for a film is, as long as you have a keen eye, can think outside the box, and a cast and crew that shares your enthusiasm, you can write as ambitiously as you like.
The beauty of editing is that it is never truly finished, there is always something more that can be done, something to add or take aways, giving the piece a whole new meaning, a whole new breath of life.
