About me

I am a writer, designer and filmmaker with a proven track record of creative, original work that covers a wide variety of disciplines and ideas.

I work like the Dickens, though my ideas are far from Dickensian in nature, I try to give them an inventive richness instead. As a writer I currently work as a freelancer games writer and as the editor of a movie and video games site that I run. As a filmmaker I've worked on a variety of small productions in many roles such as a runner, writer, director, VFX, designer and editor. As a designer I do freelance art commissions and graphic design for clients such as authors, artists and musicians.

I've got an exceptional knowledge bank that makes me an adaptive and keen employee. I have expert-level knowledge of the Adobe Production Suite, including Premiere, After-Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator, Soundbooth and Encore. I am also skilled with Final Cut Pro, Mocha, Corel Painter.

Thank you for your time,

Yours Sincerely,

Paul Butler
