About me

I'm a filmmaker based in London who specialises in creating powerful and engaging short form content for charities and public sector organisations.  

 

I produce a variety of types of film, including project promos, case studies, tips videos and larger scale campaign pieces. Take a look at my selection of work to get an idea. I work alone - writing, editing, filming, directing and producing myself - or with a crew. 

I have a background in freelance journalism and online content creation, having previously worked for the BBC and Channel 4. I have an MA (Distinction) from Bournemouth University in Multimedia Journalism, and am accredited by Broadcast Journalism Training Council. 

How I work

I tell stories with concision, efficiency and emotional impact. I'm skilled at getting to the heart of a story quickly and bringing out the most important and affecting details so these stick in the viewer's memory. I value simplicity in filmmaking. I believe that every part of a film should serve the function of expressing its central message, and that the best films do this using only the tools that are necessary. And I value subtlety, and try to make sure that my all films have a sense of understated beauty - be this through the writing, editing, cinematography, direction, or a combination of all of these. 

Please take a look at my testimonials to find out what my clients have said about me. I pride myself on being straightforward with and supportive towards with the people I work with.

At the start of every project, I make sure I develop a full understanding of what my client would like their film to communicate and discuss in detail how this might be achieved. I'm always clear about what I think will work and what might require revision. I work closely with my clients throughout the filmmaking process, making sure they have a clear understanding of what I'm doing, what shape the final product will take, and are kept in the loop when it comes to any decisions that require their input.
