Hello and welcome to Composite London. My name is Andy T and I have been working in Television/Video production and post production for over eighteen years, covering most primary aspects. I was a video editor for seven years both freelance and PAYE staff using Avid and Final Cut 7.

In this extremely busy working environment, a production assistant had many responsibilities, from organising transport for interviewees and crew, to caption generation on the Aston for the live recording. Going to shoots to assist in set-up of lights, camera equipment etc. Also tape IDs and Library systems.

Avids were used frequently. Client attended edits, as well as basic titles and graphics. Most work was corporate with a little broadcast. Clients included MTV and VH1, (promos etc) and Sparfax inflight TV.

Initially employed as an Editor, as the company grew, I was put in charge of all Pukka Groups systems (this spanned three companies). This ranges from a £1M installation and oversight of all edit suites. Set-up and oversight of all office equipment, Mac’s and PC’s. And also network management for all systems (too many to mention here). The Pukka Group consisted of three companies, of which I was responsible for all systems. On top of all this, I was also head of the graphics department! Using a Media 100, After Effects and Illusion. The graphics departments’ remit included, feeding seven edit suites and one sound suite. Also, compression of video to stream-able media for web access, preliminary design and guide line design of all pukka web sites and branding (letter heads, t-shirts, business cards etc).
