I have a degree in Film and Animation, mostly focusing on 3D animation, but my love for stories and human interest over time overcame the flash of 3D animation. So I decided to pick up a camera and never looked back. Focusing more on independent cinema where I learnt the best lessons on how to make the most of the least with independent cinema's budget being almost nothing. Later on I moved on to fictional film, television, and online content. Recently I've been doing some corporate video and I work on my own short documentaries in my own time. My strengths are working within a budget or constraints to create out of the box content relevant to the clients vision and ideas, making concepts into a practical, informative visual product targeting the required audience(s).
Some of the people I look up for inspiration are people like Bjork, David Lynch, Andrei Trakovski, and painters like Hans Rudi Giger and Salvador Dali. There is one thing that ties these people together in my opinion. That’s it their strong sense of design and nature, base, often sexual, spiritual instinct that somewhere along the way we are made to feel ashamed and afraid of if it's not trying to sell stuff that is. I think great strong art that contributes to humanity is art that divides people's opinions right down the middle. Either you love it or hate it. Almost all the design coming out of the commercial field nowadays are many variations of the middle ground to appeal to as many people as possible in a certain group maybe. And that just dilutes art and it's inherent strength. I prefer art that provokes, makes one feel uneasy, wonder and question, thus opening oneself to the realm of the unknown and hence growth, change and life.
