About

My name is Robert McDougal and I'm a Falkirk based Camera Trainee on the ScreenSkills Trainee finder scheme. I’ve been working as a spark on and off over the last few years along with doing self shooter and corporate work to pay the bills. I have been working towards transitioning from lighting, to the camera department and looking for dailies to support that.

I have experience with a range of camera packages; Amira, Alexa Mini and RED with a selection of lenses such as Canon K35’s, Cooke Anamorphic and Master primes. I'm good with processes, I get my head down and try to do my job before it's been asked of me with the hope that I fall into the rhythm of a team quickly. I'm good with V-lock, gold mount and block batteries. I can crimp BNC and have a field crimping set in my floor bag. I have experience with Teradek Bolt, 300 and 500's and other wireless transmission systems. I really just want to fill in the gaps so things flow well and the rest of the camera team can stay focused on the technical detail.

I'm currently available for work and super keen to get involved. If you would like to put me to the test on dalies, then please do.
