A showreel of my work, up to date July 2013. In all clips presented here, I was either editor, colourist, creative, producer, or a combination of all roles.
This is a reel of my work completed for “Bloody Cuts” the popular online horror series that I produce.

A popular short film I co-produced, edited and Post-supervised, from the Bloody Cuts series. Winner at Texas Frightmare ’13, with an audience of over 70k online.
In 2011, in an effort to build up a better body of my own work, extend my skill-set and collaborate with other talented filmmakers, I created “Bloody Cuts” – a 13 part horror web series.
I’ve since developed “Bloody Cuts” with the continued dedication of fellow Co-Producer / Director Anthony Melton, and Cinematographer Jonny Franklin, and have so far completed 9 short films. In doing so we’ve managed to gain a large worldwide audience of over 750,000 viewers, played at major film festivals, and received huge critical acclaim and a number of awards.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for more information, editing rates and availability. I’d love to talk (and have my own kit)!
I’m based in the Cambridge area, but regularly commute and work in Central London and other areas of the UK.
