More about me

I'm a doc director with 17 year experience shooting and directing broadcast obs doc, plus short films for charities or government organisations. I've a strong record on stuff with young people and feminist stuff. I've a track record for starting projects, obtaining funding and following through. I'm feeling in a bit in a rut lately and keen to branch out and write / direct shorts (I've written a few shorts but waiting for a really brilliant one to push) . I would also be happy to work on other people's projects as a Camera op (I have a nice kit and am strong on working with natural light) or an editor. My rate for these would depend on the project but I'm open to requests!
