During a long career as a publisher of educational materials, I became interested in documentary video making.
To this end, in 1995 I decided on a career change.
Finally in 1997 I began to work full-time at acquiring the technical skills necessary for effective camera work and non-linear editing. In the absorbing process during these years I have found the work very exciting, sometimes frustrating, never boring.
At the same time I found some similarities with my publishing experiences which have been helpful, such as concept development and finding ones own ‘voice’ during the production process.
Whilst admiring the production skills in managing a large-scale film, and in spite of the obvious limitations, I have taken particular pleasure in working alone.
To date I have completed 14 films.
