Call that ‘A Proper Job?'
I've been very fortunate to be able to make a living from doing something that I really love. (It’s a bit like being a professional footballer. Without the injuries. Or the money.)
It all began when I worked as a photographic assistant in advertising, and I’ve now been producing and directing film and video for nearly 30 years. I’ve directed in many different styles, from the Music Documentary, ‘Bill Wyman’s Blues Odyssey’ to Radio Campaigns, TV Commercials and Infomercials.
I have considerable experience in practically all types of business communications across a great many market sectors, from Financial Services (NFU Mutual, Wesleyan) and the Motor Industry (Volkswagen, Volvo) through to Public Sector Organisations and Government Departments (Department for Education, National College for School Leadership).
Over the years, I’ve worked with many experienced, talented artistes. I've directed the late, great Victoria Wood in customer care training films, Steve Coogan and Joanna Lumley in national radio campaigns and Lenny Henry in a programme about nasal irritation. Really. But I’ve found enabling people who may not be used to the production process to tell their stories naturally, and confidently, to be just as rewarding.
I direct and produce for agencies, production companies and direct clients and have worked variously as a director, producer, agency producer, producer/director and executive producer.
So, why not give me a call? Even if you haven’t got a film to make, I’m always happy to talk about Football, Bradley Wiggins or Paul Smith’s latest collection. Or chocolate…
