About me

Hello I'm Thomas, a film maker who specialises in all areas of video post production. I enjoy working on all genres of video. In the past I have worked on projects for Honda, Pioneer, H.I.S. and Tokyo Metro. I love working on the most interesting projects I can find, no matter how big or small they may be.

As for my personality, I am professional, communicative, hardworking, but also down to earth. I have a great sense of humour and enjoy working with other people. I like to think that I go above and beyond people's expectations. I like people to be 100% satisfied with the work I produce, so when people are happy with my work, then I am too.

► I can deliver to tight deadlines.
► I can work from a brief, guidelines, or use my initiative.
► I am experienced in motion graphics, animation and visual effects.
► I can recreate looks, styles or effects from references.
