My name is Amy Briggs and I am an editor and cinematographer based in Stafford, finishing my degree in Digital Film and Post Production Technology at Staffordshire University. My interests lie mainly in post production, and I am skilled in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and Photoshop. I have worked on a number of short films but particularly enjoy being involved in music videos! Please use the links below to get in contact.
I am currently working on my final year project, which is a music video based in the Harry Potter universe. I was interested by the rise of music video themes being taken from films, and wanted to create my own! I chose Harry Potter as a theme because of the easily recognisable costumes and locations. I had issues with actors, which ultimately changed the original look of the music video, but ended up working with Zoe Harvey, a Californian born model now living in Stafford.
We filmed using a Sony FS7 with external Odyssey recorder, which gave it a cinematic look similar to the Harry Potter films. Filming took place in a number of locations in the Midlands, and the beach scene was Black Rock Sands in Porthmadog, Wales. It was extremely cold and windy (and it was Zoe’s first time on a UK beach!).
I am currently in the process of putting the music video together in After Effects and Premiere Pro. The final piece will be available to view on my Vimeo channel at the end of May.
