SOCIAL VIDEOS

As an editor, I see vast amounts of footage and I love to connect ideas I have to re-purpose existing material with entertaining results. Here are some examples of how I've created original material that has succeeded for my clients on their social media channels.

 GOLD PROMAX WIN  Best use of Social Media [TV SERIES SOCIAL VIDEO] VERSAILLES | SBS

After editing all of the teasers and episode recaps for the first season of the drama TV series Versailles, I thought a great way for SBS to drive traffic to their newly launched SBS OnDemand platform, would be if I cut it into a men's hair commmercial. It resulted in a significant increase in viewers for the show and causing King Louis actor (George Blagden) to Tweet about the real hair products they use on set. This video won a gold Promax for Best use of Social Media. To finish the voice-over I collaborated with co-writer Adam Khamis.

While cutting teasers for Vikings, one of the episodes reminded me of Bear Grylls' Man Vs Wild, so I pitched SBS my idea to cut a Bjorn Vs Wild video for them to share on the SBS FaceBook page. The video racked up hundreds of thousands of views. A comment from the Bjorn himself (Alexander Ludwig) called it "genius". Additional gag writing and voice-over co-direction was performed with Adam Khamis.

After SBS commissioned my idea to re-cut Vikings episodes into a parody music video remix, I collaborated with hip-hop music producer Michael Glennon of Vienna People to compose original music from my selected samples which I then re-cut into this video.
