About me

 

A hard working freelancer with strong organisational / communication skills, social media understanding and abundant creativity derived from self-employed filmmaking and collaboration with diverse clients internationally and in the UK. A versatile polite member of any team with initiative in all environments and roles. Accustomed to website maintenance and daily administration (invoices, travel, expenses...). He strives for unique and innovative work in his films with emphasis on exploring form, aesthetics and narrative; London Short Film Festival (ICA), an opening film at BAFTA, LACMA and San Diego Comic-Con are notable screenings. In addition to film, he has regular photography commissions with English Heritage and is a writer for Film Juice. Paul's latest film Lost In The Nameless City is an documentary combining disposable camera photography and black and white DSLR video. He is looking to apply his experience and knowledge within companies and on new projects as 3rd Assistant Director.
