Self-shooting Producer - Producer/Director

07581 484 281

I was chosen for the ‘BBC Director Scheme’ – a new initiative for up-and-coming directing talent. I have a passion for issue-led documentary, and have had several of my own ideas commissioned. I am creative in my approach to shooting, and I am always looking for new and inventive ways to tell stories that otherwise would not be heard. I pride myself on nurturing personal stories and on tackling sensitive topics.
FOUR DAYS OF TERROR (working title) – 2017/2018

I responded to the events as they unfolded; built relationships with contributors on location; filmed on C300 victim’s vigils and funerals; shot scenes; showed sensitivity to vulnerable contributors; gained access to institutions.
