I worked in documentary film production for fifteen years whilst based in London and during that time I directed and produced documentaries for the BBC, Channel Four and ITV. I made programmes on a wide variety of subjects ranging from the coroners working in murder central LA, to medieval kings and aspiring musicians.
Some productions required the intimacy of a small crew and for these projects I shot all the footage myself on digital video. These included a music series with John Peel (Channel Four) and a one off documentary selected for the Commonwealth Film Festival and broadcast worldwide (Life of Brian – TVF International). Part of my work was for corporate clients who ranged from Vision Express to Rolex and The Post Office.
I enjoy working with charities and made a film locally for Surf Action which was just starting out as a charity supporting war veterans. They now have a national and international profile and are still using my documentary promo to explain their work and raise funds.
