Senior Producer & Director (single & multi-camera; self-shooter) with long experience of making Arts, History documentaries (BBC, PBS, C4) and short-form content (National Theatre). Most recently produced and directed content for, and gallery produced, National Theatre Live OBs.
Creative, multilingual, BBC-trained, super-organised, on top of budgets, brimming with ideas. Years of experience running teams and managing sign-offs and stakeholder relationships.
Passionate about creating visually appealing, context-rich story-telling based on in-depth research and journalistic rigour.
Highly technically literate with OB production, shoot (C300, FS7) and edit skills. In the right context, I am happy to self-shoot; but I get the best results when directing camera operators and working with craft editors. Multi-camera trained by Directors UK & ITV Drama.
I am often brought in at short notice. Unfazed by complexity, I enjoy the constant problem-solving of a fast-turnaround or a live multi-crew shoot. Experienced in corporate as well as documentary film-making, I have directed films incorporating animation and graphics. Have made the most of budgets ranging from £2k-500k, including archive and drama reconstruction.
I bring linguistic skills from German to Zulu, a background in Arts, Theatre, History, African Politics, as well as a lifetime of multi-cultural sensitivity to any project, whether producing, directing or both. Read Less
