I'm an independent writer/director with a mixed background in Fine Art, Photography, Creative Writing and Film Production. My interests tend to lie within making short films and writing scripts that can be defined as 'Independent Art House'.
In my mind, that is material that is unceasing, difficult to comprehend the first time around, and not at all easy on the eyes...
As a former student of the arts, I've come to learn that independent film offers a lot more creative freedom. And so naturally, it's an arena I'm more than attracted to.
I do tend to love films that also have the balls to pull no punches on their audiences.
My favourites would have to be Mulholland Drive, Under the Skin, Primer, mother!, Raw, The Lobster, The Neon Demon, The Man from Earth, Beyond the Black Rainbow & The Favourite.
What I love about them is their resilience, their fortitude, their stiff upper lips and their pride - qualities that, if personified, would make a hell of a stern director!
Aside from independent work experience, I also have professional experience working as a runner (In house, floor, rushes & tech) and as a location marshall on TV ads and feature films.
