Geoffrey Mills is a highly motivated individual, who has worked in the media industry for more than 20 years. I have developed expert skills in effectively communicating a story using powerful images, compelling sound, effective lighting and editing to make the stories come alive.
I realized from an early age in school that I was fascinated by other people's lives and their experiences. Television and the web are a powerful medium and I consider it a privilege to tell people's stories, whether it's the CEO of a multi-billion dollar company or a single mother juggling three jobs to pay the rent. I enjoy meeting new people and learning something new every day. I am also very curious about new technology and equipment that is continually evolving and flooding the market. Our industry is now changing at a fast pace and I am keen to keep up with the latest advances.
I have worked for leading T.V. networks in Australia, Europe and the US and have become extremely well versed in all aspects of photojournalism, covering top stories across the 50 states, South America and Africa.
I have spent the last 8 years with Aljazeera English in New York as Senior Camera, Editor and Team Leader, where I have worked in a fast paced breaking news environment covering politics, natural disasters, human interest stories live and packaging material in real time, for both international and domestic news broadcast.
In addition, I have 10 years of experience editing Final Cut pro and some Avid and Adobe premiere, as well as editing news packages, look lives and b-roll. I have also cut long format documentaries, always perfecting a polished look and bringing out the best use of effects for the T.V. viewer experience.
Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of workplace environments, enabling me to become well versed in a diverse, cross-cultural fast-paced team setting or as an independent problem solver.
Over the years, I have developed my ability to convey the story, which was a factor in winning the New York press club-UN Humanitarian award for reporting in Haiti. As I progress into the next step of my career, I would love the opportunity to deliver the real time top quality video production to meet your every need.
