Director, writer and producer of exceedingly good film and video...
Highly experienced and award winning filmmaker.
Making corporate television, commercials, virals, training and educational films for many leading companies and organisations.
I’ve made films for clients large and small, including: BlackBerry, Capita, NHS, Cisco, Department for Education, Cancer Research UK, Peugeot, Land Rover, BP, Cadbury, Department of Health, Coca Cola, The AA, Boots, SAP, Roche, Camelot, Speedo, Guinness plc, Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Faraday, The Royal National Institute for the Blind, BBC and many others.
I love what I do. It appeals to the big kid in me – I get to play with different creative solutions every day – as much as it appeals to the adult in me – I get to turn clients’ needs into well targeted and highly effective motivational films.
Some more words about the things I do...
Well, what can I say?
For 20 years – and then some – I’ve been directing, writing and producing films that are designed to inform, enthuse and motivate audiences – from education to the motor industry, from engineering to pharmaceuticals, from banking to the charity sector, and many more besides.
I hope one of my great strength is that I always try to bring the same energy and enthusiasm to every project – large or small. I use my experience to create imaginative, memorable – but appropriate communication. I’m never afraid to try something new – and don’t resort to formula. Every challenge is different, every audience is unique.
I’m as happy shooting with a crew of two as I am with a wagon load or three – taking the same care whether the film is designed for broadcast, projection at a hundred feet by a hundred feet, or for website or viral dissemination.
Although my experience is broad, Education has always been a particular interest and strength – as is producing films that are designed to influence or motivate and win hearts and minds.
Our industry has changed greatly over the past few years. Ten years ago a Director just directed, a Producer just produced… Now filmmakers are required to use a combination of skills, so I have also returned to shooting – particularly with HD DSLR cameras – and to editing (although I have always edited when appropriate). I’m lucky that I learned these skills over many years, so I can employ them to a high standard.
New technologies – small HD cameras, desktop editing – and the need for moving image on the web have re-invigorated my enthusiasm for what I do. There are so many possibilities now, so many new ways to create wonderful, effective films.
(Itinerant filmmaker, master of many skills and, I trust, Jack of none!)
