FOREWORD After formal tertiary education in photography and art, Jason Thomas embarked on a cinematography career as a camera assistant with a commercial television network and was fortunate to train under some of the best news and current affairs cameramen from around Australia. Core to Jason's training and style of cinematography is his ability to adapt quickly to change and work fast. Jason says his work is a carefully measured combination of working fast to capture the moment and meticulous planning. "It's more than just recording images," he says. "Cinematography elicits visceral emotions in an audience with profound effect. It's about capturing colour and movement in camerawork, shaping contrasts of the light and dark in lighting and finding balance in the framing and composition of a scene. "Great cinematography weaves these subconscious emotions through the narrative with transparent sensibility like recording the image(s) through water coloured glass. As Director of Photography these artistic responsibilities extend beyond the intangible to the tangible like the physical, managerial, organisational, commuicative and interpretive skills." Jason is a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) and has won numerous awards for his work.

My name is Carston, and I’m obsessed with words. I recently received my Bachelor’s Degree in English from Portland State University, with a focus on editing and publishing. My goal is to make your writing shine, so that your message and voice comes through to your audience as strong as possible. Communication between the author and the editor is essential, and I’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure that your manuscript stays true to your vision. I am well-versed in the Chicago Manual of Style and MLA formats, and am willing to learn all others as necessary. I’ll tackle any editing job with gusto, whether it’s copyediting a short article or doing substantive editing for a 50,000 word novel. We can even arrange for handwritten editing of a printed manuscript if you’d like. No subject matter is off-limits and I will do everything I can to familiarize myself with what I don’t know. I am also an avid writer and can take on a wide variety of writing tasks, from ghostwriting to article development on a broad range of topics.
