Hi! I’m Jo Potts
Video Producer & Editor
Check out my recent projects and CV below.
Feel free to get in touch if you would like to work with
me on a project…or if you just need some advice!
(There are more below!)
Everything from conception through to delivery of the final product. I can design, shoot, and edit all types of videos and films from short updates for YouTube to training videos, interviews, music videos, short films, promotional videos…or anything else you can imagine!
I work with Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Creative Cloud for post-production. I can take a brief, script, footage, or concept – and help make that a reality in the edit. Colour grading, sound design, and motion graphics included.
With After Effects and Cinema 4D the possibilities really are endless. I am quickly getting up to speed with the 3D side of things in Cinema 4D, as this is where real value can be added, and already have much experience with 2D and 2.5D inside After Effects.
