Film Director, Screenwriter, and Poet

  • Location: Harrogate, North Yorkshire, England
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I am a runner and film director based in Harrogate in the North of England. I have just completed my MA in Filmmaking at The Northern Film School in Leeds. My MA film has just started it's festival run playing in Egypt, Ireland and Canada so far. I travel and make films through the KINO Movement and have produced most of the content I have created through the collaboration with people I have met through that movement. I'm passionate about sci-fi and philosophically oriented content and centre much of the work I create around that genre. I am looking to build a career in film and television through hard work and creative perseverance, and hope to meet collaborators and learn from experienced industry professionals in the not too distant future.
