Studied a Ticked course

Having worked on over 15 short films in a variety of roles. Pretty Daze was my first experience as writer/director. Involving car chases, child actors, 50 extras and with the tight budget of £400, it was an excellent learning experience. The film was screened at Raindance Film Festival and was shortlisted for Best Fictional Short at the Royal Television Society Awards and the cinematography award at the Television Cameramen Guild Awards. My second short, The Colours and The Kids was made with a crowdfunded budget of £1000. Shot on multiple formats, I confidently developed my cinematic use of Yorkshire and narrative style.

Pushing my practice further, I entered the world of video art and documented the ongoing residency An Overheard Map of Now at the Abacus, an art gallery in Cardiff. Working closely with KMA Productions I created visuals for Paolo Nutini’s 2015 Arena Tour. I worked in the camera department on two features, as an assistant on Catch Me Daddy and cinematographer on Posituren. Each of these specifically visual roles has allowed me to experiment with the language of the moving image, encouraging a visual communication driven by tone and aesthetic as well as narrative.
