WHAT I'M ABOUT
Honesty. Independence. Integrity. Bravery.
Those are the central ethos to me and my work.
I aspire to create films that challenge and inspire.
HERENCIA ALTES PROMO/COMMERCIAL
In the autumn of 2015, I went into production on my second short film Loves Lost, a romantic tragedy starring Jack Monaghan, Hannah Wiltshire, Graham Dickson and Richard Delaney.
MY SECOND DOCUMENTARY
2015 saw the start of development on my second documentary which is due to continue into the early part of 2016.
It is too early to divulge any more information on the subject other than it is about the story of a remarkable business pioneer that transformed the landscape in travel and direct marketing.
MY FIRST DOCUMENTARY
I was in the US in 2012 making my debut documentary Race Across America, the story of 4 intrepid British cyclists attempting to win the Race Across America.
This was recently broadcast on British Eurosport and is available on Amazon Instant, Hulu, IndieReign and Vimeo.
Between 2008 and 2013 I produced, directed and edited hundreds of online productions for LOVEFiLM, Bill Kenwight Ltd, Ideastap and Amazon.
The beauty of this work was it was all within the film or entertainment sector enabling me to keep learning my trade in my chosen field of direction.
MY FIRST SHORT FILM
I shot my first short film, Vendetta, in 2008 on 16mm.
Shooting on that format was a real education in the art of going to war, as film does not take any prisoners, since it's so costly for a new filmmakers- your planning needs to be spot on.
I have a background in editing, something I still enjoy doing. I tend to throw the script out the window once I am in post and feel my way through the film experimenting with the edit, treating the material almost like oil paint on a canvas.
I got into directing after working on a lot of short films, documentaries and corporate work as an editor, following my degree in Film & Drama. I always felt it was something I wanted to do. My love of films was initially born out of a childhood spent playacting and re-enacting action set pieces from classic films.
