Equipment and freelance hire
In terms of equipment I own and operate the Sony FS7 Mark 2 broadcast 4k camera, the Sony Z150 4k camcorder, the Panasonic GH5 and GH4 with a variety of lenses. I also have a full LED lighting kit, motorised rhino slider, gimbal, monitors, autocue and sound equipment including radio, shotgun and studio microphones.
I am also a CAA approved drone pilot, operating the DJI Inspire 2 X5S with a variety lenses and the Prores upgrade. I often use drones as part of my productions, find out more here.
Many of my clients use me as an all in one technical solution, using me to both film and edit projects. I’m also often asked to be a key member of larger productions, whether that’s filming from the ground, with my drone above, or editing/creating motion graphics and animations in the post production process.
I am available for freelance hire, if your interested in using me in your project please do get in touch.
Some examples of my video work:
Cynllun Prentisiaeth yr Urdd
This video was produced for the Urdd to help promote their apprentice schemes.
Produced/Directed by Elin Mannion.
Here is a video that has been put together for the Sport and Leisure Team, Carmarthenshire County Council, to show Young Ambassadors and the great work that they have achieved and continue to achieve in getting more people, more active, more often in Carmarthenshire.
An Optimwm production.
We were asked by Urdd Gobaith Cymru to produce a series of promotional videos for their adventure centres across Wales. This is the video for the spectacular centre at Llangrannog in West Wales. Directed by Elin Mannion.
WWF Earth Hour
I was asked to film and live stream the marking of Earth Hour 2017 for the WWF in Wales.
This involved filming the event in Cardiff Bay, live streaming it to Facebook and editing a highlights video afterwards.
Monmouthshire from the Sky
I was commissioned by Visit Monmouthshire to make a series of aerial videos featuring several landmarks and attractions across the county.
The films were unveiled at the 2016 Monmouthshire Eisteddfod and were also used by the BBC, ITV and S4C.
Min y Don Adventure Centre
I was asked to make a promotional video for the popular Min y Don adventure centre in Snowdonia, showcasing the various activities and the location.
Care for the Family charity appeal video
Many major charities use promotional videos to help gain support, and for over 10 years the charity Care for the Family had been using a 7 minute video to give an overview of their work in order to gain support at events that they held.
I was asked to film and edit the new version in collaboration with in house script writers and directors. All of the video was filmed by myself with the exception of the bereaved parent interview in the middle of the video.
The video has been well received and is now regularly shown to audiences of several hundred at a time at charity events and conferences.
