What type of cars do you sell ?
General cars corsa clio fiestas.
What is you opinion of the grime scene atm ?
Its like a spring board to build up a fanbase and go mainstream but then again thats only my opinion innit, I believe all this talk of london artists get the best privilleages needs to stop because artists like trilla,wariko, fangol,shifty etc have showed if u have good talent it will show other than that grime is good.
Is there any rivalry with any other camera men ?
No not really theres no1 in the nottingham to contend with its just me really if ur askin if cameramen from london should feel that I’m there rival u should ask them ca they dont come to nottingham and film artists from here I’m the kinda man that is prepared to go any where and I have other aims I want to help this scenery im involved in to help most of the artists get there full visuals.
Also do you think you have progressed when you have made a new dvd after another ?
Definitely every time i make a dvd i get my fanbase/support higher that therefore makes grime get more broadcasted and my work and quality gets better ever time with the camera each dvd i do.
Do you think networking is a key thing to do ?
Its 80% of the job the rest is just drivin about makin sure ur at the raves gettin freestyles and good footage.
What make’s a good grime dvd ?
Well u need good artists that can spit deliver and come with good content u need a little clash indirect/direct and some good footage of the scene it all helps to keep the people updated on whats goin on.
Who was the first mc you have ever filmed ?
Who has gave you the best freestyle and interview ?
The best interview was open footage u was there when ghetts never turned up to his bookin y we dont no, o yh p money was booked there by the way and I was askin supporters questions and catching jokes with the og’s on a more serious note a good interview i had has been with dj hott stepper .

What skill is better good camera skill or editing ?
Bit if both actually If u don’t edit it properly have footage out of sink u will not be filmin that artist again lol u need to come correct with footage with filmin and editing.
Do you do this work by yourself ?
Yes I do all work by myself but 1 thing I travel film edit do all my networkin myself I only use 1or2 people to help me with editin my mini videos.
As most people know you live in Nottingham, SO WHICH GRIME IS BETTER NOTTINGHAM OR LONDON GRIME ?
Well grime is grime I have personal favourite artists from london and nottingham but I dont look it like that I look at it as a whole uk is grime i dont like to single any area out by thinkin whose better if a artist is good ill give them there props not by where they come from.
What would you say to up and coming camera men ?
Well its not easy if u dont have a bring in from scratch ull need to show u can do non-stop-filmin for at least 1year before u get a notice and if ur in it for the money I would say ur lookin in the wrong place I learnt to love filmin passionately before I made any made most of my money goes into petrol travelling and thats because I like to film every where.
