I have made just under 20 films for the national children's charity Beatbullying and corporate clients include Santander (through Fresh Media). I have 12 years experience producing and directing prime-time television programmes for Channel 4, MTV, ITV1 and BBC2.
Recently I have been operating as a one man band but I have directed both single and multi-camera crews on location for many years in the past and directed many edits.
Having worked on prime-time factual entertainment programmes and observational documentaries, I tend to give films a documentary style as well as using fast-cut energetic montages cut to music. However, I'm happy to work to any style brief!
I am used to liaising with corporate clients, members of the public, celebrities, public bodies and all sorts as well as having extensive experience working with young people.
