About me

 

Robin grew up in the Wiltshire countryside, offering an idyllic backdrop for many a home movie on his beloved Handicam. This soon led him to more professional studies, completing film courses in New Zealand and Bournemouth, before upping sticks to London. His roles have been varied - he's been cinematographer on a double BAFTA winning series (Our War), produced a BAFTA nominated short film (Good Night), and was one of the creative director's on the most expensive game show ever made (Red or Black?). Now a director in his own right, he's been directing content for the two biggest shows on British TV (Strictly Come Dancing & Britain's Got Talent), as well as working across the globe with some of the world's leading brands (Expedia, Converse, 7Up). Robin likes good story's, powerful images and swimming in lakes.
