Award-winning, Grierson & RTS nominated documentary filmmaker, and graduate of The National Film School. I first developed a taste for storytelling whilst undergoing an MA in Visual Anthropology at Manchester’s Granada Centre acquiring a grounding in the tenants of observational filmmaking and making my first documentary film in Japan - The Gaijin. I then applied to The National Film School to make unfolding narrative films that depended on the personalities of subjects to drive the films’ story and where my voice was a subtle component in their story. I’m currently working in television whilst developing ideas with a view to making more observational docs as a Producer Director.
There was a lot going on at this year's Quadrangle Film Festival, provocative films about corruption & poverty in Africa, Iranian epics, Kosovan nightmares, US road trips - but this quiet film about an old couple going separate ways was the most moving.
