I’m a freelance filmmaker and video editor based in Mile End, London, and Winchester, Hampshire, and have been working and practising for over three years. I have written and directed seven short films (three sketches; a mockumentary; a comedy; a horror; and a half-hour sci-fi drama), and I have also filmed and edited numerous different video productions for clients and for myself. I am experienced in shooting weddings, music videos, and narratives, however I am adaptable to making any kind of video content. I’m proficient in Sony Vegas, and I’m experienced in Adobe Premiere. I shoot all my work using a Canon 70D, and, primarily, a Canon 18-135mm f/3.5 lens. I also use a Samyang 35mm f/1.4, and a Canon 80mm f/1.2. I use my own tripod, shoulder rig, and dolly. For audio, I use a Tascam DR-70D and a Rode VideoMic.
In my spare time, I am active on my YouTube channel, where I have made a wide variety of different videos: video essays, visual poetry, stop-motion animation, political discussion and activism, film analysis, montage, traditional vlogs, and, last but not least, my own rendition of the Doctor Who title sequence.
If you’d like to get in touch about a video shoot, whatever it may be, then please fill out the contact form on here, linked in the header above – or just message me via any of my social media pages!
Below are some examples of my work for clients, as well as my own work, and if you’d like to see more then please do check out the YouTube channel, which is linked all over the place. Enjoy!
64 Bars of Pace – Music Video
In August 2017, I filmed, directed and edited a music video for Jase, a Winchester/Bath-based rapper and performer, to promote his EP The Hampshire Boy, which is available to listen to and purchase on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Music. The music video was a resounding success, and was featured on the Grime Daily website.
64 Bars of Pace subverts the stereotypes of traditional rap videos through taking place, primarily, in natural locations, and explores the evolving nature of identity. Myself and the performer worked closely on the content of the music video, however I was ultimately tasked with driving the creative direction and single-handedly managing production and post-production.
Fee Francis: Eventice 2016 – Recruitment Competition
In 2016, I filmed and edited an application video for Eventice, a UK-based recruitment competition for event managers. Fee, an Event Management student at the University of Winchester at the time, was picked to proceed into the 3-day competition, and subsequently made it into the final round. The top prize was a full-time job with Eventice.
Fee did not win, however, based on the strength of her CV, performance, and of the video, Eventice chose to offer her a runner-up prize – which they do not formally offer – of a work experience placement in Dubai, where she spent two weeks as the Project Manager for Eventice Middle East.
UNSTUCK – Sci-Fi Drama (2016)
Throughout the latter half of 2016, I wrote, directed and edited UNSTUCK, a sci-fi character drama about a young woman who meets a man claiming to be a time traveller. The film was entered into the British International Amateur Film Festival, where it received a glowing review, and is currently under consideration for various other film festivals.
UNSTUCK was filmed in Winchester, Hampshire.
FAITH & KING – Christ Church Winchester
King was used during the Download Week Away 2015 (a Christian youth retreat run by Christ Church), acting as a primer to discuss the notion that God is the King. I was asked to make a video which depicts everyday activities with the word ‘king’ in them; walking, talking, etc, so as to express how God accompanies people throughout their lives, in anything and everything that they do.
A Very LEGO Wedding Present – Stop-Motion Sketch
Totally Legit DOCTOR WHO Series 11 Spoilers – Doctor Who Sketch
I consider going above and beyond what’s expected in film and video production to be incredibly important; subverting expectations and creating something memorable is the only sure way to success. Rather than making a conventional predictions video, I blended my predictions with a Who-themed sketch.
