WHAT I DO

  • events videos
  • fashion videos
  • sports & fitness videos
  • promotional videos
  • short documentaries
  • weddings & special occasion videos

I’m a videographer and video editor which essentially makes me a one-person video production company that’s affordable and equally talented. Apart from filming and editing a project to tell a story, and can also help with scriptwriting, storyboarding, pre-production, directing actors, motion graphics design, and video marketing. In a few general words:

I make promotional videos to help businesses grow, increase sales and generate publicity.

I create beautiful video memories of weddings and special occasions worth remembering.

I make sports & fitness videos to showcase talents and athletic performance.

I make short documentaries to tell incredible stories about ordinary people.

Last but not least, I capture life from a uniquely unseen perspective that fascinates viewers.

HOW I DO IT

  • compact video camera
  • high quality lenses
  • blend with the background to capture authentic behaviour
  • home-based video editing studio with industry-standard software

I film using a compact lightweight 4K video camera with two lenses (Panasonic GH4 with Lumix 20mm and Lumix 42.5mm) and I work mainly with natural lighting to preserve authenticity but have artificial lights if necessary. Therefore, I’d never case an obstruction during an event because of the small size of my equipment.

Surprisingly, although I’m 6′ 2″ tall and of quiet nature, people always forget about my presence during a shoot. This allows me to capture genuine emotions.

I like to keep things as natural so I avoid posing people or re-enacting events unless the project requires. Also, I have a tripod but prefer to shoot handheld for authenticity.

To prevent camera shake when filming fast-moving objects, I may use a stabilizer which is 60cm high and 20cm wide.

I edit from the comfort of my home using a PC with popular industry-standard software called Adobe Premiere Pro. Sometimes, I create motion graphics and text using Adobe After Effects.

SHORT BIO

My filmmaking journey began during my mid-teenage years (2008) when I got my first camcoder and began making funny videos with my little brother that were very entertaining for my family and friends.

Two years before moving abroad to study in the UK and whilst still in high school, I began watching hours of tutorials on the basics of image retouching with Photoshop, video editing with Premiere Pro and animating text with After Effects.

I’ve always been fascinated about cameras and how they work. Every camera and lens reads colours differently and portrays life in a unique way, and I think it’s magically exciting to be able to capture emotions on video to tell a story later on.
