A prolific self-shooter and editor, Joe is willing to travel the world with his camera kit getting to the heart of stories. He’s created in-depth documentary-style pieces for TV and online as well as taken on adventurous multi-media projects. Here are some examples:
Special Report: Universal Credit – Britain on the Breadline
Joe spent 2 days at a foodbank in Oldham to investigate claims from charities that the government’s new benefits system is forcing people into poverty. Using a standard camera and a series of Go Pros, Joe filmed the mini-documentary in an intimate and illuminating format for all platforms on Sky News.
‘Brexit Trawler’ Project – North Sea
Joe spent 10 days on the North Sea in November self-shooting content based on how the fishing industry is feeling ahead of Brexit. Working alone in tough conditions he sent back 5 TV reports, 3 tv lives, 4 Facebook lives and a wealth of coverage on social media.
