GingerVideo Welcomes New Team Member
We’re pleased to welcome a new team member to the GingerVideo team!
Dom is joining our Creative Team as a Videographer and Editor; you’ll find him out on a shoot or editing our latest videos with the rest of the Creative Team!
We’re glad to have Dom onboard, and we’re excited to have expanded our Creative Team again.
We thought we’d ask Dom a few questions to see what makes him tick!
What is your role at GingerVideo?
My role is Videographer and Editor.
What have you enjoyed the most since starting at GingerVideo?
I know it’s cliché, but I have really warmed to the team – I couldn’t have hoped for a better, and more welcoming team to join.
I’ve also really enjoyed learning more about motion graphics, especially with Photoshop and After Effects.
How would your friends describe you?
Positively, I would hope! Usually laid back and passive, following after my beautiful boy Milo (my pug).
What is one thing you’ve learnt whilst at GingerVideo?
What I previously thought was a reasonable amount of experience in programs like Abode Premiere, wasn’t. There’s so many new things to learn!
Also, that instant coffee isn’t all that bad.
What is your favourite film?
It depends on the day you catch me. I’m a big Tarantino fan, and movies like Inglorious and Django (I’m a big Christoph Waltz fan) will forever be favourites of mine. Inception is also a possible choice; the soundtrack is incredible.
I’ll be honest, I looked at Sam’s answer to this and his choice of Léon: the Professional would have been mine, but I feel I have to choose something different. That movie is a masterpiece.
Who would you choose to represent you in a film about your life?
Tom Hardy. We look nothing alike, but I could sit and admire his face for a few hours – good enough for me.
What do you like to do outside of work?
Admire Milo, browse Reddit and eat. In that order.
But seriously, I’m trying to step up my game when it comes to photography, as that is a hobby I’m lucky enough to have a nice piece of equipment for. I’d also like to get more into filmmaking; I’d love to begin creating little pieces of art.
Another interest of mine is music, and I feel like my taste is pretty eclectic. Some of my favourite artists at the moment include MF Doom, Mac Demarco, The Streets and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Do you have any pet hates?
Honestly, too many to list, but I can’t stand when people get their grammar wrong.
Do you have any guilty pleasures?
I try to embrace my pleasures to keep them from being ‘guilty’, but I guess one could be watching artisan woodworking videos on YouTube because of how relaxing they are – thank me later.
