Ian F. Hunt Freelance Filmmaker and Digital Media Consultant
Who am I? I began my working life as an apprentice Electrical and Electronic Engineer, getting my first degree at the same time, then moved into electronic systems design and built automated production systems before moving again into computers and IT which I found to be boring. Then another move into a highly enjoyable time in my career in Professional Theatre firstly as an Engineer and then as a Project Engineer commissioning Lighting Control Systems in Theatres and TV Studios around the World.
A chance meeting with a manager of a recruitment consultancy ushered a new career in Freelance Recruitment for High Technology companies working on everything from JAVA development, Movie FX to 3D Graphics. Hence ASH Associates the IT Recruitment Consultants was born.
After several successful years it was time for a change and I looked into going back to higher education, but this time taking a different path not Engineering this time but instead into the Arts and Humanities. After 4 years of hard work and I admit quite a bit of fun I graduated with a BA (2.1) from the Arts University Bournemouth. I had so much fun as an undergraduate I decided to keep it going and went onto to study for my Masters Degree at Bournemouth University in Cinematography for Digital Film and Television. Now I’m ready for another challenge.
I am at my most creative when behind a camera whether I am shooting a video or composing a scene for a photo shoot. I am able to work within a team in most roles but prefer to be behind the camera. I have a range of skills, which means I can shoot the video, record sound and edit the completed video. My video work has included Documentary’s, Sports, Short Films, Dramas and Virals for Social Networks.
Uniquely my background in Engineering combined with my Degree in the Arts allows me to quickly adapt to new technology and apply this to my Art keeping my skills current and bringing new ideas into how I capture visuals or edit my videos.
In my work as a Media Designer I have the broad range of skills and experience to create the digital content and manage it. From SEO to Social Media Management.
