Hello, my name is Christian Uppill. I started my own small freelance Video and Photographic business one year ago. I have been a qualified chef for 15 years and a few years ago I change careers and haven't looked back. I predominantly use DSLRs for all my work as I really love the sensational cinema-graphic look they produce. Beaning a freelancer allows me lots of flexibility to work on my own projects ( i enjoy producing and filming short films ) and it also gives me time to spend with my fiance and my 9 year old son. I like to get involved and to support local productions and artists. Adelaide always has some great shows on ( Adelaide Fringe, numerous films festivals, lots of art festivals and exhibitions and a overall great atmosphere. ) I am a member of the Australian Screen Editors Guild, Australian Cinematography Society, Media Resource Center. Just a couple of my highlights include been a Production Manager and Director of a pilot episode of a culinary TV show titled "Be My Guest", I have also Produced and was DoP of three Adelaide Fringe theater performances, worked along side BankSA and Adelaide Fringe running around to most of the performances doing Live Vox Pox's, I have worked alongside NESTLE producing them a few promo videos for there junior chefs competition and lots of corporate promo's, wedding and special events. I will be at the Adelaide Phillip Bloom workshop and hope to see you Adelaidians there feel free to say hi an post a reply.
