Home   >   Runners   >   Floor Runners   >   Samuel James

I have worked on several professional sets as a runner and would like to continue to learn about all aspects of the media industry to advance my skills and understanding to build a career that challenges and fulfils me on a daily basis.
I have directed, produced and edited three music videos and a small budget commercial. As well as narrative films and music videos, I have worked as a videographer and editor on several small adverts and event films. I am able to operate camera and sound recording equipment to a professional standard and I have a very good technical understanding of Premiere Pro and an adequate understanding of After Effects and DaVinci Resolve.
