Experience

Archer's Mark LTD

10/2013-04/2014 Self-Shooting Director

I worked full-time for production company Archer’s Mark and agency AKQA, producing content for Nike Football’s official YouTube channel. This involved working from a brief provided by the agency and producing weekly videos based around the Nike Football Academy’s activities. My job involved shooting various training sessions, match days and special events, and capturing/conducting interviews with Academy players and coaches, as well as professional players and coaches from the likes of Arsenal FC, Leeds United, Hamburg SV and Manchester United.

Below are some examples of this work:
