Senior Producer & Director (single & multi-camera; self-shooter) with experience of making History and Current Affairs documentaries (BBC, PBS, C4); short-form Arts content (National Theatre), and live OBs (NT Live). Since the Covid-19 lockdown, I have remotely produced training films for the Mayor of London and online learning materials for primary students.
Creative, multilingual, BBC-trained, super-organised, always on budget, brimming with ideas. Quick to gain the trust of on-screen talent and documentary contributors, and love working with actors and theatre creatives. Years of experience running teams and managing complex 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 with heavy use of archive, animation, graphics and drama reconstruction. Have made the most of budgets ranging from £2k - £1m.
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 directing, producing or both. Read Less
