    My final piece "The Sprint King" (https://vimeo.com/167284366 - Only a 60 sec teaser available at the moment as it's in pre production to be made into a feature) caught much attention and won me many awards leading onto bigger and better things.

    A fine art course based on photography. However using the Canon 5D models and being able to film movement instead of just stills led me to cinematography.
