Series Producer, 'Fake Britain' (BBC1)

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Expert
  • Freelancer: Available Soon

Television Series Producer, Shooting Producer/Director and Edit Producer with primetime and daytime factual credits including Channel 4 News, ITV1's 'Exposure'​, BBC1's 'Fake Britain'​; Channel 5's 'The Secret Life of the Family'​, Al Jazeera's 'The Listening Post'​ and BBC World's 'Working Lives: Human Trafficking'​.

Canon C300 owner-operator. I shoot on pretty much everything - including the Canon C300, C100, XF305, 5D and Sony FS- and PMW-series cameras. I am also a professional photographer and own a Canon 6D.

Whilst I love shooting/directing my own material, I also get a buzz out of directing DOPs and camera ops.

I am an accomplished and swift script writer whether the desired tone is factual, funny or a cheekily irreverent blend of both. I have also narrated several of my films.

My programmes don't end when I finish shooting/directing at the end of the day (or night.) I drive my episodes from pre-production, casting and production all the way through to the final offline edit, online grade, sound dub and delivery.

As a Series Producer I have led a team of 5 P/D's and 2 AP's whilst simultaneously directing and shooting my own episode of the new series of BBC1's Fake Britain. I pride myself on being able to keep wavering crew and contributors onboard and on-side when the going gets tough.

Through my own fledgling production company Stoke/Stow Media I develop and produce corporate films for charities, universities and ethical businesses.
