Below you will be able to view other pieces of my work via Vimeo. It will hopefully show you some more examples of the variety of my work and allow you to watch some of the shots from my showreel in context.
Oliver is currently working freelance as a Camera Operator | Lighting Cameraman | Director of Photography.
After he graduated with a BA Honors in Graphic Design (specializing in Photography) from the 'Norwich School of Art and Design he began working in the broadcasting industry in the camera department as a Techincal Operator at Cellcast TV. His next post was VT Director, a role created for him by the company. He was responsible for creating all pre-recorded material to support the live shows. Although he produced all call sheets, wrote sccripts and shooting schedules, his real passion was lighting and operating the camera. During his time as VT Director he produced, lit and shot over 200 VT's for the company.
Recently accepted in to 'The Guild of Televsion Cameramen', Oliver's skills include camera operating on the studio floor, vision control and sound mixing live shows, location lighting. He has shot a wide variety of promo's, demo's and interviews for the in house production department at QVC and their vast client base.
Oliver uses all of his experience of lighting and cameras working on low budget short films and music videos. His most recent project 'CLOSE TO HEAVEN' was commissioned by ARRI and Directors UK and was one of the first productions to be shot digitally anamorphically on the new Arri Alexa 4:3 Plus.
Milan Krsljanin - Director of Group Buisness Development ARRI CINE TECHNIK
"Oliver Thom is a young and very talented filmmaker with wealth of expertise. His enthusiasm and dedication is remarkable and he is not shying away to pull out all the stops to complete the job in hand. As a DoP for a feature teaser, he worked tirelessly under dreadful weather conditions and produced amazing cinematography. The shoot was with, at that time just released, ALEXA 4X3 and anamorphic Hawk lenses and results were visually stunning. Knowing under what conditions he was working and how limited resources he had at his disposal it is incredible what he managed to deliver.
And on top of that, he is a lovely chap to have on your crew."
Anna Kersey - Production Supervisor QVC UK
"Olie is one of our strongest camera operators. He has a great visual eye, is full of ideas and shows great commitment to the job. He is happy to go the extra mile - always keen to get involved from the planning stages, is diligent in his technical work and always endeavours to do his best. He consistently produces great results, always asks for feedback (is keen to see the end project) and I would say is a pleasure to work with! In particular I would highlight his pre-production work for L'occitane."
Paul Burns - Senior Producer QVC UK
"Olie is very professional in his approach. He always takes keen interest in a project from start to finish. He always offers up ideas both before and when shooting and is often instrumental in steering the style of a shoot. Olie is always conscientious and thorough in his preparation which inevitably has a positive impact. In a nutshell: he goes the extra mile."
Martin Denham - Producer/Director QVC UK
"Oliver's drive and commitment to pushing the art of cinematography at QVC is really inspiring, and it's been a real pleasure for me to work with him on several promos over the last year. Oliver is a great collaborator, and his enthusiasm pushes me to come up with better ideas that compliment and justify his technical and creative ability. Oliver is very approachable and supportive, and his eye catching visuals really enhance the look of QVC."
