He has more than a decade of experience teaching photography and videography related subjects to under-graduate and post-graduate students.
Jonathan will update his bio a little later to make it word count competitive with Chris’.
His interest in video was sparked at an early age. Playing with early industrial black-and-white “frame grabbers” he would capture frames from VHS and rebuild image sequences into primitive video, even programming his own CODEC to play the videos on his school’s “out-of-date” computers.
Chris founded Cybertrix Media in 1999 and started creating promo videos, events packages, corporate presentations, and video training resources. His creative endeavors saw him film and edit music videos – some of which have charted internationally – and he regularly completes post-production on documentaries, TV commercials and cinema content.
With over 300 productions under the belt, Chris has come across a range of situations and budgets, often having to think outside-the-box of traditional technology and techniques. He is a workflow consultant to some of Australia’s leading brands and media outlets, and a beta tester of video editing software.
His software expertise includes DaVinci Resolve, Edius, Premiere, Vegas, Reaper, Cool Edit Pro, Photoshop and a mountain of additional tools to help him though his day.
His favorite piece of gear is his trusty second-hand Panasonic MX30 video switcher. “It’s instant power on, does what it says on the box and never fails me!”
