After graduating from Cambridge University with a degree in Computer Science, Andrew moved to London and entered the heady world of visual effects. His main task was to produce particularly tricky effects that could not be done with off-the-shelf computer software. While at The Moving Picture Company he wrote the core of the crowd simulation system for Wolfgang PetersonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s epic Ã¢â‚¬Å“TroyÃ¢â‚¬Â? and later enhanced the same software for Ridley ScottÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“Kingdom of Heaven.Ã¢â‚¬Â?
However visual effects were just a stepping stone, and after three years in Soho it was time to make his next big leap... Even if it did mean pulling pints and cleaning ashtrays.
Ã¢â‚¬Â?Spoilt Eggs", nominated for the Arri Newcomer Award at the Rushes Soho Shorts Film Festival 2006, was Andrew's very first film.
"Favorite directors include Roman Polanski, Ingmar Bergman, Francis Ford Coppola, David Lynch and Darren Aronofski.
"I admire films that push the audience into the backs of their seats. They may not necessarily enjoy what they see, but they will be glad to have experienced it."
