Ceejay Fulmar is a filmmaker and father of two beautiful girls.
I would like to go on to make fiction films that have elements of true life events but have the characters work out the difficulties so that it inspires people in bad situations, to take note, and make a positive step for themselves.
Over the last few years I have been part of several professional productions working alongside companies as large as the BBC as well local based smaller production companies.

I have leant a lot there's last 2 years studying FDA Media and Arts Production (Degree). I have developed my skill for be coming a Film maker and Animator at University.
I have also leant how to work with clients, work as team and even working on my own.
For example I have worked with DJ Jack Hill the Youngest DJ, as a group everyone pulled together to make a Music Video, after filming the Music Video it put my self forwards to edit the project and in doing so I got to work with DJ Jack Hill.
A few people in my group filmed a film for someones leaving do, the edit was passed onto me, the edit was prritty strate forwards, putting the clips in the right order, editing the interviews and everyone got awarded for helping out.
My A Day in a Life of a Mannequin film was interesting, beasues it was all done by me and no one else. I filmed, directed, acted, animated and edited every think by my self. The film took around 2-3 months to make (that was only becasue of how long the animation look and editing), the feedback from my friends, family and teachers was fantastic! They all loved the film, because of how one person (me), could make a film with no one else involved and it was funny to some.
One of the best film I made was called: Enter the Video Game World Why?.. Because I used all of my skills from media, animation and photoshop, in whitch create a film where someone enters into a classic video game!
The only help I had in this film was from a class mate, he look photos of my and filmed me against a green screen. The scenes filmed in my flat I filmed (start & end), the part were I walk into the castle, my class mate filmed and apart from that I did every thing else.
My final major project film - The Masked Man, came out a lot different to how it was originally going to be and was a lot better than I had thought. The original idea for the film was to be about Slender Man, but instead the film turned into a Film Noir, B movie and a victim stalker.
The idea was always changing becoming different from the Slender Man idea, the final changes came after meeting with my actors, because they suggested different things that could make the film better, taking those ideas into account, I changed some aspects of the film.
I filmed the film using my small Sanyo camera, filming on the day was interesting, because of the wet raining weather, my actor didn't mind, they were happy to act and I was happy to film. I was delighted with the skill of the acting, they showed on location and how brilliant the acting was in the finished film.
The only problems we encountered on the day, was during the start of some scenes my Sanyo camera would wouldn't turn on, or would turn off. But that was only for a few seconds, it was because of how cold the weather was. The other problem we encountered, was when filming the last two scenes of the film, the camera battery died on us, but I pulled out my my iphone and we filmed the last two scenes.
I have also filmed a charity event in that was hosted by a group of music students and there teachers where there as support. There was two of us filming at this event me and Nick, we had three cameras, two cameras on tripods that Nick was in charge of them and I was in charge of the other camera. I was getting close up and mid shots and the other cameras where getting Full shot from different angles.
The Dirigo film festival animated logo was done by me, I was given a the Dirigo logo and asked to animate it. I did what was asked of me, everybody was pleased with the finished product and so was I in the end.

I am currently living in Bristol, as a primary residence, while I often live in Plymouth in numerous occasions. Having completed the top-up degree in Film and Screen Studies, I will be graduated on February 2017.
Since I experimented with the old version of Windows Movie Maker several years ago, I became an amateur editor. This led to the development of my interest in film editing. I gained a little experience on film-making while studying A Level Film Studies. I am very passionate on the academic aspects of Film and Media.
I love watching films and TV since childhood. These led to my interest in Film and TV industry in terms of career.
In 2015, my experimental short film, Let the Bike Ride Itself, either original or short, was selected for the 4th Edition of CineWomen, a magazine representing women artists, filmmakers and choreographers around the world. The magazine was supported by WAC (Women Art Connect).

Films and Projects
All of my films (except Dreamer, Vegetable Thing & An Adaptation of West Side Story) that are showing on Vimeo, were edited in Final Cut Pro X. The other three films were edited in Adobe Premiere Pro, and I only edited one of the projects, which are still available on YouTube.
Short fiction/non-fiction Films
These are my first professional films produced while studying at St. Brendan's Sixth Form. My roles for these films are assistant editor (Dreamer) and light technician (Vegetable Thing).
This film is my autobiography about my friend and I got teased at school. Gossip is a type of social bullying, which did cause an emotional impact as I withdrawn myself from my friend in order to end the eponymous bullying.
I worked as a camera operator during the four days of filming Writer's Block, directed by Ceejay Fulmar.
Throughout the production of Going Out Out, a film for the Performing Arts students, I managed to make this film on her own due to my film partner's illness and absence abroad.
The idea of the alternative way of communication and cultural impact of an owl inspired the film. Encounters Short Film Festival managed to show The Owl in their Digital Library from 15th September for six months after they announced they didn't select this film.
This is one of my favourite films I produced, and it was inspired by my passion for the subject of the film and Peter Dinklage's performances. It has been shown, as a 20 min version, at the Bluescreen event in the Cube Cinema.
I took the role as the second unit director for this film. I filmed over 100 shots in three days in Berlin on late January 2014. There are the shots used in the film including opening the curtains, the cathedral and even thrushes on the abandoned bike. Some of my shots are combined together like those from 1:59 to 2:20. My favourite shots are those of the graffiti of the girl with glasses, only one of those shots featured in the film from 2:08 to 2:13. My appearance have been featured throughout the film.
This personal documentary commemorates the 100th anniversary of WW1. Combining the archive footage and shots filmed in London, which reflect the changes between the past and present.
This documentary film about Hayao Miyazaki, celebrated as the rarest auteur in film history. Miyazaki's films and my interest in auteur theory inspired this project that became my graduation film in FdA Film and Media Arts Production.
An Adaptation of West Side Story is my graduation film in BA (Hons) Film and Screen Studies. This was assigned as a group project and the film has to be set in Bath, which I found it challenging. I contacted to the Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society and they were very keen to be in the film. They took a very big challenge on performing West Side Story in March 2016 and had a experience with BBC, who came to film the documentary about an African guy, who haven't seen a play or perform in a theatre before, in a few years back.
From the beginning to the opening night in March, my team and I came to the rehearsals, once or twice a week, and we filmed over 100 shots in two months. We utilised one of Frederick Wiseman's documentaries, La Danse (2009), as the main inspiration for the film, which depicts the personal relationship between the filmmaker and the performers. Despite of my personal challenges with my team and the film, we overcame the obstacles by problem solving and our determination to complete the film. This gave me some confidence and the opportunity to work with people in a professional manner.
During the filming of Courtney's performance, I did a shot of the violinists and a cellist as I pan at least four times and also did a rack focus beautifully on the violinists. This was the main reason that I was very determined to do the editing of this amazing performance. Another reason for taking the role as the editor is my understanding the importance of the shot I had filmed.
I volunteered myself to film and edit Arachnephotia exhibition at the Old Town Quarry, Weston-super-Mare.
I edited the trailer for the Dirigo Film Festival while my team and I organised the selection of 20 films for the festival at The Cube Cinema, Bristol. I took the role as FilmFreeway Co-cordinator for the festival which my team watched and checked over 300 student film submissions from the UK and around the world. The total number of the submissions was over 900 despite it was the first time for my team to curate the festival.
I edited the FdA & BTEC Showreel for the showcase at the Odeon, Weston-super-Mare. Writer's Block and Femmes de Films were featured in this showcase.
Experimental / Montage films
Let the Bike Ride Itself is an experimental film, inspired from The Girl Chewing Gum (Smith, 1976), about the director herself give commands to everything around the places in Bristol and Plymouth. I edited the short version of this film to submit to the Depict competition for 90 second films in 2014.
Due to my strong interest in montage and super-cut, I collected over 40 films, featuring strong, independent women, for Femmes de Films super-cuts.
An Adaptation of West Side Story Documentary is Password-protected because it may expect to be submitted to Film festivals. IF THERE ARE OTHER QUESTIONS, DO PLEASE ASK.
