Sport archive production on the 2010 documentary Fire in Babylon, charting the history of West Indies cricket in the 1970s and 80s. On a practical level this meant producing dates, times, over and ball numbers for the deliveries that had done most damage to life and limb of opposition batsmen.

Channel4/Deltatre, London 2012 Parlaympic Games

A fantastic month at the Olympic Park working on the multi-platform video offering for the Paralympic Games with the Deltatre and Channel4 teams.

I was managing the four additional live video feeds viewers could watch online and adding clever tricks to the streaming options; like embedding selectable live text commentary in the video and tagging highlight clips on the fly as the live stream went out.

It was a privilege to work on the whole production. I may be biased but it did feel like the coverage might actually help achieve something quite important and positive.

Setting up the ball-tracking system at cricket grounds around the world and operating the system live on air for Sky Sports, ESPN and Channel 4.

It was a very diverse roll, requiring expertise rigging cameras, exhibition standard reverse parking, massive attention to detail and an ability to instinctively know when a delivery was sliding down leg.

Client: Seven Publishing/Sainsbury’s, May 2012

I was given a week to find as many Paralympic Athletes, members of the public and Sainsbury’s employees as I could, and get them on camera asking questions to David Beckham.

I managed to track down pretty much everyone on my hitlist, including soon-to-be gold medallists Richard Whitehead and Hannah Cockroft. I wasn’t involved in the final edit, so didn’t actually meet Becks himself.

I did meet The Sparklers though (below). They were providing half-time entertainment on court during the basketball at the Paralympic World Cup in Manchester and were not impressed when I said I didn’t know Simon Cowell and couldn’t give them his number. I reckon they will go far.
