Examples of Work

  • Corporate Video

    Dave has worked on a wide range of corporate videos over the years. The showreel below demonstrates the breadth of his work as producer, camera operator and editor. With a proven record of juggling creative ambition and budget restraints, along with an easy-going manner and ability to compromise, Dave knows how to ensure your video is a success, and hit those KPIs.


    Dave is proud to have worked with the following brands and agencies, some of whom appear in this showreel:

  • Short Fiction Films

    Away from the corporate world, Dave also enjoys working on short fiction films, in collaboration with Lincoln-based writer and director Steve Young. Their first three short films were shown at film festivals throughout the UK, including Sci-Fi London, and are enjoyed by wider audiences online. All three of the films were self-funded by the production team and realised on a minimum budget.


    The films can be viewed via Steve's website. For each film, Dave's role was producer and cinematographer.

  • Event and Charity Films

    Some of Dave's most rewarding times behind the camera have been where the film is for an event or charity - whether that be supporting a Land's End to John O'Groats cycling challenge, a 24-hour football marathon, a year-long running challenge, or community events - it's always amazing to see the power of film bring these stories to life.


    All the examples below were produced, filmed and edited by Dave.
