About me

An aspiring screenwriter/director based in London. Having just completed an under-graduate course at Ravensbourne university studying Digital Film Production, I am going into the industry looking to share my skills with deeply intuitive and flexible collaborators to create uncompromising work. I have contributed on projects with companies such as Agile Films and Warner Music, although most of my content has been self-produced, ranging from music videos and short films to most recently experimental works, the latest of which you can see on the following link: https://vimeo.com/219057480 (Password: FMP2017) - please do not share (still in production). I have been writing for approximately four years. I have been developing a feature script during that period between shorter individual projects and client briefs. The film is based on the hardships of a selfless homeless community during the early 1980's in the South Bronx, New York. The film is highly inspired by the photography of Sally Mann, who embraces both the physical and spiritual essence of her subjects and their surroundings. I aim to constantly hone in on my voice as an artist, taking influence from early Avant-Garde movements and contemporary experimental filmmakers. However, my biggest inspirations are Chris Cunningham, Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch; bold, fearless innovators that challenge narrative with their stylised visions. As you will see from my latest film 'The Masters of Dreams ©', an exploration of 1960's U.S propaganda through the use of television, I consider my style to be driven by mood rather than a conventional narrative structure, as I strongly believe that story is driven by the emotions they convey (often abstract) than it is by plot. I am more concerned with approaching everything as an auteur. The work I consider to be my most demonstrable is highly visual, containing minimal dialogue and often working in tones of black and white. I tend to use darker themes that have deep subtexts that can then be explored. What is on the surface is never enough to be creatively fulfilling. I always want to search deeper, with an interest in the capabilities of the form and fragmenting it in a way that directly engages an audience. While I can offer a unique aesthetic perspective, I am also very adaptable to any situation, approaching what I do with a desire to strive for authenticity and to get to the heart of what the film is trying to say.
