My Work Printer friendly CV

William Allum is a multi-skilled creative with over 10 years of experience in broadcast media and film. Focusing primarily as Creative Producer / Director, he is experienced in taking control of a project, and leading it from start to finish. As a director, his short films have won awards and played at film festivals internationally.

He is also a skilled editor, both off-line and on-line, an experienced Designer in After Effects, working on a range of content from promos to feature films, creating motion graphics and visual effects. He knows how to operate a camera, and has his own equipment. He also writes, with several of his short film scrips winning awards and have been selected for festivals.

For smaller projects he can do everything, from the initial creative, to final delivery and everything in between. On bigger projects, he can really oversee the whole project, direct on a fully crewed shoot, work with a dedicated editor and designer, guide a session at an audio house and liaise with the client.
