David Dixon + I'M CONTENT
Hey guys, my name's Dave. I'm a melbourne based filmmaker and keen as mustard to join the I'M CONTENT team. I've been running solo for the last few years, working mainly in the corporate and small biz world, both video and photos. Over the last year I've been building my skills to make the move into the commercial world. Working for myself has been great, but I'm definitely missing working in a team and making stuff together.
A few years back I co-founded and ran a non-profit organisation called One Girl, which provides woman and girls with access to education. To date One Girl has raised over $3million and supported over 15,000 women and girls. You might have heard of their doitinadress.com campaign that was recently all over the news.
On the gear side I run with a Sony a7s2 and Canon primes. If I'm shooting stills I'll use my Canon 5dmk2. On bigger budget jobs I hire gear and run with a RED, Sony FS7 or Canon C300mk2, a Ronin, easyrig and fly my mavic.
Primarily I edit in Premiere, After Effects, Lightroom, Photoshop and have the whole Adobe Creative Cloud suite. I have used Final Cut Pro and Da Vinci Resolve before and although minimal use I'm a fast learner and make the most of the plethora of tutorials on the web if I don't know something.
As for education I'm mostly self taught. This year I undertook a bunch of courses at AFTRS. They include 'Intro to Directing TVC's, Directing Masterclass, Lighting Fundamentals and Advanced Lighting'. In my younger days I completed a Bachelor of Environmental Management, although not so relevant.
Below are some examples of my video work, all of which I've shot and edited. There's more under the work section of this site if you wanna check them out. I've also added a bunch of stills I've shot on film. I thought these looked far more interesting than my corporate/event shots, but if you want some examples of those I can add them.
I'm available from the 4th December onwards including the weekend of the 9th and 10th. I have my driver's license and car.
I love the work you guys are creating at I'M CONTENT and would love to be apart of it.
Feel free to give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org or a buzz on 0401 123 123.
Thanks in advance!
