About

Neil

I’m a camera operator, self-shooting producer/director and editor working across a range of broadcast and film productions including live events, sport, factual entertainment, music videos, short films, A/V solutions, press junkets, electronic press kits and corporate videos.

I'm also Head of Production at No Magnolia Productions, based in Reading, Berkshire. I'm responsible for overseeing the development and production of all live-action projects that come through the company.

Live camera work as a freelancer includes twice filming Channel 5’s week-long annual event, ’The Gadget Show Live’ as part of a multi-camera crew, shooting 3x 60min shows per day on stage with the show’s presenters. Sports coverage includes motor racing for Lotus, kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts. Corporate work include conferences, product videos, promos and viral videos for ARRI, Sky, AON, Wella, Pepsi Max, UBM, Giff Gaff, Vodafone and Protect Your Bubble.

Work for television includes press junkets for ‘Fast & Furious 6’, ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ and ‘The Danish Girl’, minicams for ‘Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway’ and ‘Tool Academy’, and behind the scenes material for ‘Black Mirror’.
