FILMMAKING

I'm a highly experienced camera -operator, time-lapse specialist and a fully licensed drone operator. Plant time-lapse has always been a passion of mine and I currently have the studio space, multi axis time-lapse equipment and horticultural necessities, such as irrigation  and indoor grow lighting to create stunning plant time-lapses.

I thrive on location and managing all the technical aspects of documentary production. I'm very comfortable shooting PTC's, setting up and cross shooting interviews and I always strive to get that extra shot that really makes a sequence stand out. During my 7 years working in TV I've been lucky enough to work on some truly fantastic television programs.

I've always loved making films and I realise how important they can be for promoting professional content. It's clear that having high quality visual information, accessible to a wide audience is key to the success of  any organisation. If you've got a story, then I would love to help you share it.

Recent Project

Administr. de la nature et des forĂȘts, Luxembourg

| BIODIVERSUM | A WIEWESCH | BURFELT | MIRADOR | ELLERGRONN |

 

This project took over a year and a half in the making. 5 films about 5 completely unique Conservation Centres back in my home country, Luxembourg. These films explore, through a day in the life story arc, how each centre immerses its visitor and school classes in their cultural, historical and naturally significant landscapes. It was an absolute joy to undertake this project and an extra special delight to discover the really wild side of the country I grew up in. I hope you like them.

BROADCASTTELEVISION

TIME-LAPSE
I became interested in time-lapse photography during my masters degree for which I produced a sequence showing the remarkable behaviours of British Sundew plants for my final film project. Since then I've been developing a passion for studio based time-lapses and have the experience and equipment to produce high quality blue chip quality time-lapses either in a controlled studio environment or in the wild.
PRODUCER
I'm familiar with a wide range of camera formats including Sony F5/FS7/PMW200, Canon XF305/C300, Red Dragon, Pansonic Varicam/GH4 and most DSLR's. As a freelance filmmaker I am extremely meticulous when it comes to the care and maintenance of my own and any camera equipment that I hire. I own and regularly hire out my own equipment. Please email me for a full list of equipment.. Email: rjmann89@gmail.com
CAMERA
I'm a Bristol based camera operator/ assistant with a B.A. in Wildlife and Media from the University of Cumbria and an M.A. in Wildlife Documentary Production from the University of Salford. Over the past few years I've been lucky enough to work on some very memorable and inspiring shoots and delighted to have picked up a couple of Awards along the way.
AERIAL FILMING
I'm a fully licensed, CAA approved UK drone operator. I own and use  DJI Phantom 4 Pro, but am also familiar with most of the DJI range. Safety is my number one priority with any flying job and I will always endeavour to feel completely satisfied with managing risk before taking off.
