Digital marketing & analytics specialist by day, a bookworm and a geek by night. I spend most of my time consuming endless amounts of sci-fi and fantasy in all forms, talking about it and trying to create something similar. All views expressed are my own and should not be taken too seriously.
Hello! I’m Andrew, thanks for visiting my site. I'm a professional video editor and independent director based in Brighton, and a graduate from The University of Warwick.
When it comes to filmmaking, I've always tried to push the boundaries of what can be done with limited resources, and recently directed a film set on board the International Space Station as the Earth gets destroyed. Because after that anything else is easy, right? I’m particularly interested in sci-fi, as you can probably guess, but especially the low-key variety - and not just because I don't have the budget of Transformers (yet).
I've had success with several short films, including one which was shortlisted for a competition judged by Quentin Tarantino and Eli Roth, and now has almost 50,000 views online. I hope to one day reach their level, and enjoy learning and watching as much as I can along the way.
My work as an editor also involves creating 2D/3D animations and motion graphics, as well as shooting in studios, and I occasionally create digital artwork which you can find on this site. Because spare time scares me.
I started Screen Vortex as a slightly more constructive form of procrastination, with a not-at-all sporadic blog, but thought I should start making better use of it. So as well as a regularly updated blog on anything vaguely related to screens (and maybe vortexes), written by myself and some rather cool people who know their stuff, you can find my film projects here and updates on future productions.
I also like travelling, gigs, dogs, and oxford commas. Thanks for reading, and enjoy the site!
