Biography

What else to say, other than that i am hopeless at everything in life other than filmmaking and giving advice (honestly, my advice is sublime).

Okay, here's the truncated version of my filmmaking career. Born, raised and still live in Sutton in Ashfield, Notts, started making shorts with a Video8, found more sophisticated formats of film and video, made more shorts, started to get the shorts into festivals, made more shorts, still live in Sutton, two of my friends trained up as producers, made more shorts, started our own production company, made a DV feature with no money, decided we were a force to be reckoned with, no budget DV feature does us proud and goes to film market in LA, still live in Sutton, making shorts and shooting a 3rd feature Summer 2006.

Project Development

Well, at the moment we are rapidly developing our 3rd feature to be shot in the summer. It's a dark tale of loneliness and revenge set in the alcohol fueled world of Nottingham's night-life.

But, we are always developing stuff, from docus to features back to shorts. Why sit still in this life?

Influences

I, personally, will list my five favourite filmmakers.

Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Abel Ferrara, Spike Lee, Quentin Tarantino... okay, six, and Jim Jarmusch.

Explanation: just look at the list and i think it speaks for itself.
