I also work in broadcast and corporate editing and shooting. From time to time, I do graphics, animation and photography as and where required.

I've worked for CBBC, BBC Alba and STV Glasgow, as well as in adventure documentary, corporate commercials and virtual reality.

Dave MacLeod: The 24/8

This was simply one of the coolest projects I've been involved with. "I can't believe it!" were Dave's words on the summit at the end of the 24/8. They might equally apply to making this film. I spent nearly three months making this film and had a blast. Just filming it in the first place was a logistical mountain, with all the right cameras, mics and lights to be in the right place at the right time. Then to follow Dave carrying all that plus walking gear, winter gear, then food and water on top. Walking 40-odd kilometres on the most perfect winter day, witnessing some of the most impressive climbing I can remember, then over the Munros by night to get back to civilisation in the following dawn twilight.

Afterwards there were the days spent filming in Glen Nevis with the thaw and snow melt roaring off the hills. The interviews, weeks of editing, and laterally writing the music with help from good friends and family: 24 hours condensed into 15 minutes - that was one of the most gratifying things I've done for a while.

Mark Beaumont: Africa Solo (Excerpt)

Here's a short excerpt from Mark Beaumont's record-breaking ride down the length of Africa. I edited this into a 15-minute film, as well as several short videos for the accompanying speaking tour. Jobs like this are fantastic as you learn so much about a culture and a place. By the time I'd edited this film, I felt I had a pretty good idea of the landscape, culture and people of the various African countries, their contrasts and similarities. Historically, Africa was of course criminally screwed up by the Europeans. The repercussions echo down the centuries unfortunately and Africa only makes the news when there is civil unrest, famine or war. Whether it was intentional or not by Mark, the footage here dives into the Africa we tend not to be exposed to; for sure, a place I would like to visit in person one day.

Dhà-Ochd-Dhà (Two-Eight-Two) - BBC Alba (Excerpt)

In 2013, I walked around all Scotland's Munros in three months. It was a great summer, it was hard, I learned a lot. I made a film for myself, which lives on Youtube as Two-Eight-Two. I also did an accompanying 1-hour documentary with BBC Alba, of which an excerpt is above. The Munros in a summer was my first massive long-term project: from first inception to the broadcast of this Alba documentary was a period of three years! A massive amount changed in three years. Good reason if there ever was one to keep long term goals burning on.

Glen Lochay

Located near Killin in the Southern Highlands, Glen Lochay was already familiar to me through my travels across Scotland. By 2013, I'd already noted the stands of new woodland growing in various areas throughout the glen. Then in 2019 I became involved with the reforesting aims of the glen and subsequently produced this short film. It's about the glen as it stands now: I wrote the script, sourced the voiceover (Derek 'Pluto' Murray!), filmed, edited, colour graded and wrote some of the music: a real production-of-one and another great job to have done. I also made their website!
