A Devon based freelance Broadcast TV Director, Self shooter and Video Artist. working regularly with Licklemor Productions (based at Sky campus) and Mind The Film (based at Somerset House). I have several broadcast TV directing credits for Sky One's magazine, factual entertainment show What's Up TV, and I recently directed Sky Arts Unmuted, a buzzy, peak time magazine-style program showcasing up and coming British talent. I also have experience self shooting bespoke short documentaries and factual digital content that highlights cutting-edge innovation in art, music and technology. In addition, my personal project entitled Watch with Mother, which explores the distorting effects of postpartum depression and complicated grief, was selected to screen at Sheffield Doc Fest, Encounters Film Festival and the ICA in 2019. I have experience shooting with Canon, Sony and Black Magic cinema cameras, with advanced knowledge and experience editing video with FCPX.
Since 2017 I have been a Triforce Creative Network and Screenskills Trainee Finder alumni, and while training, I was fortunate enough to work as both a runner on a high-end BBC drama and as an assistant editor on a Bafta-nominated feature film. After completing my traineeship I was hired by the award-winning production company Urban Myth Films. Led by Howard Overman, Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps, I managed the office and learned the ins and outs of TV development research, script editing and creating pitch documents.
