More about me

I went on to study Film and Video at the International Film School, Wales, obtaining a 2:1 honours degree in 2006. 2007: Served as a first assistant director and subsequently a co-producer on the short film TUESDAY'S GIRL, directed by BAFTA Cymru nominee Matt Brown. 2009-2010: wrote and directed my first professional short film, WW2 thriller VIVE LA FRANCE. Ran workshops with child actors and directed the film in two foreign languages (French and German) 2010 - 2011: was one of six directors chosen for this year's It's My Shout scheme (in association with BBC), where I directed the short film EDNA'S BENCH in August. It was broadcast on BBC2 Wales in November of 2010, and was nominated for a 2011 BAFTA Cymru award in the Best Short Form category. 2011 - Completed direction of my third professional short film, zombie drama FAMILY FIRST. 2012 - Edited several shorts and music videos (coming soon to this page), and completed post-production of FAMILY FIRST Specialties: Screenwriting (short films, features, Grand-scale television) and directing
