My name is Claude,
I'm an Internationally minded all-round music and visual McGuyver with diverse business smarts. Skip the next paragraph to read my Film/Video experience:
Musically I've written, recorded, and mixed music for mostly South African documentaries and shorts, one of which was nominated for an **Oscar!**
I've also produced and mixed work as a solo artist, with influences ranging from pop and rock to industrial and experimental with a lot in between. I have a professional recording studio with all my own instruments, electronics, microphones and monitors where I do the majority of my mixing, engineering, recording, and voice overs.
Clients have included Harley Davidson (Russia) - Nurses for Africa (USA) - DSTV (South Africa) - Howard Fyvie (South African Solo Artist) and others.
As an honors film student (with a postgrad from the University of Cape Town) my approach to both music and visuals is the same: I want to tell evocative stories through my art.
Visually I've worked in the commercials world in Cape Town, photographing, editing, and filming projects for a range of international clients. These include Reebok (Germany), Griffe (France), Valpre (a South African Coca-Cola Company), Suit Supply (Holland), ZachariasTrust (UK), Acceleration Media, Sanlam, and others.
I know my way around photo retouching and video grading: color, lighting, and skin corrections as well as advanced compositing and image enhancement techniques.
In addition I have played multiple post-production roles ranging from offline editing to coloring/telecine and compositing/rotoscoping.
Feel free to request examples of my work. I'll be happy to supply you with any of these.
Keen to work with you soon!
