I’m an Award-winning Filmmaker, Editor & Sound Designer based in Devon.
I love to collaborate with filmmakers to help craft and create memorable stories. I’ve edited or been the sound designer on both features and shorts, music videos, trailers & documentaries. Some have screened at festivals including Cannes, Rhode Island, Aesthetica and lots of other brilliant ones you might not be aware of.
I’m a BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew 2019/20 participant and a co-founder of Lightning Oak Productions. I also run SW FilmMail, a Newsletter sharing the latest work/opportunities for filmmakers & actors who live in the South West.
When I was younger, my dream job was to takeover from Virgil Tracy as the pilot Thunderbird 2. I know it was a TV show…and he was a puppet, but I thought by the time I was older someone would have created the Thunderbirds for real. Sadly at the time of writing, this has not happened.
Thankfully, just when it was dawning on me that I’d have to look at other career options I had my first cinema experience – the 1997 re-release of original Star Wars Trilogy. So began a bit of an obsession…Years later it would inspire my first ‘proper’ film – a lightsaber fight between me and my friend. It’s online if you know where to look…
Watching Star Wars gave me my first glimpse of the power of Cinema, but it wasn’t until The Lord of The Rings trilogy (‘the world’s biggest home movie’ accoring to Director Sir Peter Jackson) that I thought giving this filmmaking thing a go. Inspiration came from watching the extensive making of documentaries on DVD – seeing the spirit those films were made in…that looks like something fun to be a part of.
My first editing experiences were cutting together family holiday videos, then making short films with friends and studying film at University.
I’ve had the great pleasure of working with a number of talented filmmakers from both the UK and beyond on a hugely diverse range of projects – please do get in touch to discuss yours today!
