I'm a dedicated and very experienced PD with a strong visual sense, and a firm grasp of narrative and character, developed over 15 years working in television. I'm happy working independently, or as part of a large crew and enjoy bringing out the best in my team and contributors. I love the craft of producing beautiful television, and whether l'm on the roof of a skyscraper, or following a gamekeeper along a river I'm always looking for something new to make a production shine.

Over the years I've worked with presenters, with celebrity talent and with people who have a story to tell. Much as I enjoy the technical side of filmmaking I know that the story and the people telling it are the most important part of a film. So I always work with that in mind, aiming for the best delivery and the strongest story possible.

In the edit I'm calm and considered, always prepared to work with the material available ensuring that alongside the editor the best is bought out of the rushes and the strongest story is told in a stylish and compelling way. Read Less

Jack is hands down the best director I've ever worked with. His creativity and enthusiasm are matched only by his vast technical knowledge. He's brilliant with contributors and genuinely cares about the story he's shooting. As a confident as a director and uncompromising cinematographer he won't give up until he has something special in the can. When most directors would be in the pub, guaranteed Jack will be somewhere not on the call sheet, shooting the shot which opens the series.

In the edit, Jack is an accomplished story teller and great with narrative. He has no problem stringing together complicated story arcs to craft well told stories and content.

Worth mentioning, he also comes armed with a lot of his own equipment, which he rents to production, always at a very reasonable price. This was of massive benefits to my shows as the extra kit, combined with Jack's relentless creativity put thousands of pounds on-screen for a fraction of the production cost. If you're thinking of hiring Jack, snap him up before someone else does. He's the real deal.

Jack was one of four Producer/Directors on 6 x 60' reality format I produced for ITV, which featured six young people chasing a journalism job at Europe's biggest magazine publisher - titles included heat, Closer and Empire. The show consisted of their houseshare, their relationships with each other and the challenges they faced before editors ruled them out of the race. The show was turned round in a very short time on a very tight budget with limited access to the publisher yet Jack stood out as a PD who both understood the conceit of the series, built relationships with all contributors and self shot and directed sequences that came together easily in the edit. With some help he also edited one of the strongest episodes. He is a pleasure to work with and there's no doubt to my mind of hiring and working with him again.
