Todd Kewley

Assistant

Weston-Super-Mare, United Kingdom

In 2012 after completing a FdSc in Wildlife Education and Media at Newquay College I worked as assistant to Time-Lapse cameraman Tim Shepherd. Tim taught me a huge amount about wildlife filming, especially time-lapse. Whilst I assisted him with a wide range of time-lapses, from wide shots of rain forest growth to close ups of mushrooms emerging and extreme close ups of ice crystals forming, I also helped build and create sets in which to capture these shots, which we filmed in both 2D and 3D. Before I had the amazing opportunity to work with Tim I had spent roughly four years networking with wildlife cameramen via emails, phone calls and even a few meetings, it was through this networking that I first made contact with Tim and after a few years of talking got the chance to work with him.

Credits and Experience

I assisted Tim Shepherd with timelapses and set building, one of which was a set built in the cold storage room in Bristol university to simulate the growth of frost on a large scale, for example a tree trunk and tree branches.
