About The Film Unit - Paul Thompson
I have over 25 years international broadcast experience, primarily as a cameraman, beginning in 1983 with HTV, where I gained a wide and thorough training in all aspects of camerawork, from Studio and Outside Broadcasts to PSC and ENG.
I consider myself to be a professional, innovative and imaginative lighting cameraman, at home in any production environment from dramas to documentaries, commercials to current affairs, both network and regional.
I have additional skills and experience as a Steadicam operator and consultant & have travelled extensively throughout the UK & overseas, filming in many hostile and challenging environments.
Do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to discuss rates or availability for any forthcoming project.
AssignmentsMy services have been engaged on a wide variety of productions, commercials and promotions for BBC, ITV, C4, S4C & independent production companies.
