Blu-ray and DVD production

Since July 2015, I’ve been working for cult video label Arrow Video on a freelance basis. Initially, I was taken on to help shift the QC (quality control) backlog, but within a couple of months I was handed the reins on NIKKATSU DIAMOND GUYS VOLUME 1, a project that was in the very early stages of production, and given the task, as producer of the project, of shepherding it through to completion. Since then, I’ve done steady work for Arrow as a producer, handling everything from releases of overlooked titles like BURNT OFFERINGS to all singing, all dancing special edition box sets of bona fide classics, including some of my favourite films of all time (e.g. THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE and DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING). I also do a fair amount of bonus features editing, both on my own projects and on those overseen by others.

I’ve also done work for other labels, among them Eureka Entertainment, Signal One Entertainment and Synapse Films, including QC and video essays.

This page, updated periodically, lists the different releases to which I’ve contributed and my roles on each of them.
