1. In 2008 I directed four short documentary films for the ‘3 Minute Wonder’ strand on Channel 4. The core theme of each film centred on the idea of a gathering, be it a religious pilgrimage, a nightclub, a protest or one mans mission to save his town.

    It was my mission to create these simple docs with a cinematic approach and as a reflection of how docs in the 60’s and 70’s even in the 1980’s would have been shot on film using quality lenses. I felt the aesthetic approach to documentary was lost at that time and had given way to cheaper means of production, which is valid but held no allure.

    I also wanted to look at simple narratives that could work over a very short duration centred solely on the one character and in turn creating an intimate portrait of that person.

    The film Rocky was short listed for a Best Newcomer at the Greison documentary Awards, the first short film to go up against an hour long or feature length documentary.
