Wilson Bambrick

I'm is a EDITOR, COLOURIST, DIRECTOR, CINEMATOGRAPHER and ANIMATOR now based in Melbourne after a long stint in Brisbane. With a focus on the camera as a storyteller, I have worked both locally and internationally. I also travel wherever work requires. I’ve made myself a great agency and client network in Brisbane filming and editing TVC, socials, animation and music clips. Editing has always been my passion and specialty. I’ve picked up animation and motion graphics in the last 5 years which has brought in great new projects for me. I have my own camera, lighting and audio setup, but work with cameras setups from all budget levels.

Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

I've been able to work with incredible artists of varied disciplines all over Australia. I've been able to work underwater cameras in Tasmania and blow the dust out of the lens in remote communities in the Northern Territory. I've just completed a stint working on the 2019 Federal Election as an editor.

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

Fulltime freelancer! Organising, prepping, then anything and everything!

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

My main editing console is at home. It's my office and it's neat and nifty. I also work in production houses or facilities just as easily.

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

I feel like growing up in country Queensland has given me a heightened sense of where opportunity is and isn't in Australia and I always reference this in my work.

What are the tools of your trade?

Custom PC Editing Console running Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro/AE, camera setup with a Panasonic GH5/ Atomos and EF XEEN primes, anamorphics, and basic lighting and audio setup Panasonic GH5/ Atomos and EF XEEN primes, anamorphics, and basic lighting and audio setup.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

Yes, I love that side of work. Agencies, individually, with producers, businesses and peer collaboration.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

Confidence comes from discipline and if I do the same job or task in half the time as I did the year before, I'm doing something right.
