Video Team Lead | May 2016 – Feb 2018 | London
I led a team that created and produced live programmes, on-demand video, and animated content to broadcast standards for the world’s largest trading platform. I was tasked with developing workflows, style guides, and best practice techniques for all of IG’s audio-visual, production, and post-production work. I drove new technologies in how we presented and produced video, provided input for the strategic direction of the team, and aimed to raise the profile of the Video team whilst developing team members.
Studio Production Manager | Sep 2014 – May 2016 | London & Hong Kong
Initially hired as a Studio Editor, the role quickly developed into Production Manager with the primary responsibility for day to day running of the studio including pre-production, scheduling, booking & managing freelancers, studio maintenance and future upgrades. Since joining Fidelity, I implemented new, logical production and post-production workflows, designed and managed new post-production SAN & backup system, designed technical specification for second studio in the Hong Kong, which I went on secondment to run and get setup, and repurposed existing studio kit for on-site auditorium, whilst simultaneously upgrading the UK studio.
In January 2016 I went on a short term secondment to get a brand new, class leading studio in Hong Kong up and running - both in terms of the technical setup of the studio & control room, and also the programming & processes for the studio. Hiring an additional post-production head count and sourcing production agencies for overflow workload were also key, and successfully met, objectives.
