  • I am an award-winning, friendly and experienced drama director, with 15+ years’ experience confidently creating fictional and dramatic content for film, TV and online. I have a deep passion for both the technical and the creative, and enjoy nothing more than combining art and technology on film.
  • I have had my films screened at numerous festivals around the world and my work has been praised by director Neil Marshall (Game of Thrones, Westworld, Hannibal) and acclaimed producer David Parfitt (Shakespeare in Love, The Father, Much Ado About Nothing).
  • I am highly experienced in directing actors of all levels, as well as screen-testing, casting, rehearsing and blocking. I have directed prolific names including Guy Henry (Star Wars, Harry Potter, Holby City) and Craig Conway (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Vera).
  • I’m a comfortable leader of cast and crew to create a fun and inspiring atmosphere on set, while remaining calm under pressure and delivering results under budget and on schedule.
  • I’m proficient at storyboarding, pre-viz, location scouting and all other forms of pre-production with crew.
  • I have also served as a writer, DP and / or editor on some previous projects. I have collaborated with, and have had my editing skills praised by Thelma Schoonmaker, editor to Martin Scorsese.
  • I have a strong understanding of second unit and special / visual effects filming techniques such as compositing, green screen and miniatures. I have had my visual effects work praised by Dennis Muren, Creative Director of Industrial Light & Magic.
