Having programmed for all major entertainment sectors, you can rest assured your show is in safe hands.  

From busking to preprogrammed time-code shows and every cue stack in between.

Lighting 3d Previs

To see what is possible before getting into studio, I have a full 3d rendering program that produces a visualization of what the lighting will look like. 
It also takes a console input so once programmed the show file can be loaded on site and your show is ready to go.  

Pre-visualiser: Capture & custom VVVV scripting

Video editing in da-vinci resolve, Live vision mixing and Media server programming.

From simply striping time code onto an already existing video, to turning round 25 edits in a month I've got you covered.
