“ ALL THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IS WHAT'S LEFT BEHIND ”
I picked up my first Super 8mm camera when I was a teenager on a council housing estate in the south-east of England during the punk era of the late 1970s. Ever since then I’ve worked around the planet making films and sometimes art, talking to people and writing with a camera to tell stories about the human condition at its best and worst. My films have received BAFTA nominations and numerous other awards and have screened internationally at festivals, in cinemas, on TV and on other alternative platforms.
Over the last 2 years I’ve been undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer possibly caused by exposure to radioactive particles somewhere out on my travels. As a result a life-long observer has now become the observed in a series of 55 short-films I’m developing into a cinema and transmedia project called : The Legacy of an Invisible Bullet.
With my health back I’m also completing an epic project about war and football called Minefield which started filming in Bosnia back in 1995 and which is due for completion over the next few years.
Critically acclaimed internationally as a Film-maker and Video Artist, I’m always on the look-out for challenging creative collaborations and will never close the door on good ideas and original stories.
