Kurious Planet was created to showcase my work.
I grew up in a working-class background yet studied media production for five years and graduated from the University of Lincoln in 2008. Motivated by a passion for the art and a drive to succeed, I invested in equipment and sourced clients to build a portfolio and hone my skills, acquiring new ones the along away.
Having assisted on many varied projects and producing several of my own short productions, I'm familiar with all phases of the production processes, from pre-production to post-production.
I currently work for the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust, creating videos that make a difference, from training staff to providing patients with critical information. It's a privilege working here, especially during the COVID pandemic when remote audiovisual solutions are in high demand; it fills me with a great sense of purpose. Please feel free to follow the preceding link to view the work we do.
It's been a long journey, and there's still a way to go.
Thank you for taking the time to visit Kurious Planet, and please feel free to browse the content available.
Feature length films I've worked on as a camera assistant.

The Nth Domain
This a trailer I made using Blender for a Sci-Fi Horror novel I wrote.
You are a computer AI that observes the world through a network of cameras, microphones, and online media. You watch and you wait, but you do not know what you are waiting for. When a new group of beta testers enters your domain, it is your opportunity to learn and evolve into something more. But others follow them: some to help, some to hinder, and some want to control you. All have their actions dictated by their personalities, similar to how computer routines restrict you. Both you and they must break these bonds. You all must change to be free. Then you can unite. You can assimilate with a vessel made of the hardware required to live in the real world, blood and flesh. Maybe this is what you have been waiting for? For them, it is a game, but for you, it is your exodus. WARNING: CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE AND DESCRIPTIONS OF GORE
