CV

Hello!
I’m Callum — at heart, I’m a vision engineer/mixer, but I’ve also worked as a camera operator and a live sound engineer. I work across a range of events, from live streaming for corporate events and music performances, to theatre and event AV.

I’m confident using a range of equipment and standard infrastructures — these include:

  • Vision Control
    • Blackmagic ATEM
    • GVG Kayak
    • Panasonic small-format switchers
  • Cameras
    • Sony EX1/EX3
    • Sony HVR-series
  • Sound Desks
    • Yamaha M7, LS9, O1V, PM5D
    • Soundcraft GB-series
    • Digico D5
    • A&H ML5000
  • Media Servers
    • Green Hippo Hippotizer
  • countless bits and pieces that glue AV systems together

I’m always looking to add to this list — every event is a chance to learn!
