« Perfect! I had a fantastic experience with Allan. He was incredibly prepared for every session. I was a complete beginner and now have found confidence in taking pictures as well as filming videos. Allan is very approachable, knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend him. A great tutor who really knows what he is talking about. »

TV & Video production from idea to screen. Tips and technology tuition from ex - BBC Producer / Director in London.

Methodology

Whether you are a student, a new starter in the media industry or making films for fun, my lessons will sharpen your existing skills and make you more confident about organising your TV, film or video production. Learn how to organise and make your film in a professional way, how to use your camera to best effect and to develop an editing process that will streamline your work in the cutting room.

My tuition can be customised to suit individual needs but generally most courses will give you a knowledge of:
PRODUCTION: ideas & development; scripting; organisation; budgeting; scheduling and planning.
SHOOTING: production essentials; choosing and working with a crew; directing; camera essentials; basic lighting; sound recording.
POST PRODUCTION: preparing for an edit; basic editing; finishing, grading, files and codecs, sound editing; track laying & dubbing.

Experience

I offer longstanding experience having worked in the industry for over 30 years first as a film editor, a location and studio director, and most recently as a producer / senior producer with the BBC, I now run my own London production company. My students have included BBC production staff and trainees, school students, business colleagues and others interested in making their own films.

Perfect! I had a fantastic experience with Allan. He was incredibly prepared for every session. I was a complete beginner and now have found confidence in taking pictures as well as filming videos. Allan is very approachable, knowledgeable and professional. I would definitely recommend him. A great tutor who really knows what he is talking about.

Allan's response

Katharina was an excellent student who is a quick learner and very conscientious. During the course she quickly improved her photography and video skills and now has a solid understanding of the basics. I am sure that she will progress further to master more advanced techniques.

I've worked with Allan as a camera operator and Allan as a director. He has a very calm manner that makes the set and production run very smoothly.
He has a lot of experience as producer/director, from his time at the BBC for years and freelance.
Highly recommended!

I have worked with Allan on several assignments filming video casts with University academics. Allan is calm, clear and extremely professional. He puts people at ease and achieved excellent results.
