Zoë Midwinter

Statement

During my 3 years at UWE Film, I've had the freedom to explore different elements of Filmmaking and allowed myself to become fully absorbed in learning as much as I could.

Whilst I've dabbled a little in directing, producing and even foley recording, I developed my skills as a camera operator on small scale projects, and finally settled as an editor. I know my way around a camera, and prior to the pandemic shot live drag performances in a dynamic documentary style.

But it is as an editor I find myself most at ease, and I am currently proficient in Adobe Premiere and Avid Media Composer, and have earned my Avid MC Certification. Alongside this, I have started to learn Davinci Resolve and Adobe After Effects. This is to build myself an essential editing toolkit, so I can take on any project that comes my way.
