I am a producer, documentary filmmaker and photographer, based in London, UK. I’m a curious storyteller, continuously inspired by people and nature, that loves to tell stories on themes such as; women’s and human rights, the environment and climate change. I creatively adapt to each brief and campaign, which often sees me multitasking as a self-shooting director, producer, and photographer. And due to the ever changing industry, it’s meant I have turned my hand to multiple other complementary roles including multimedia for campaigns, research and idea development, coordinating film festivals, case study gathering and distribution. Throughout my career I’ve worked alongside some brilliant clients, charities, brands and production companies - please read some testimonials below. With all the projects I work on, I aim to find the best way and medium to tell the story, to bring it to life and engage audiences. My hope is that my work inspires people to open their minds and connect to a story, cause or way of life. I have all my own camera equipment and editing software (Adobe CC) and I'm also happy to hire in kit and shoot on other types of cameras, depending on the specifics of the project.
- TranshumanceTranshumance is a short documentary telling the story of a 2000 year old tradition, in the Cevennes, South of France. The film follows the story of husband and wife, Jean Paul and Lucette, and the small shepherd community, on their yearly trek from lowlands, up through the mountains. This film captures the highs, lows and adventures that happen each summer during the migration of nearly 2000 bell-clad and decorated sheep. However, can such an old colourful tradition continue?
