About David

A victim of trashy 80's and 90's straight-to-video movies, I thought I had escaped my inevitable dead-end future by entering the world of advertising; only to be pulled back in when a chance encounter with a low-budget filmmaker ignited my passion for film-making. I put to use my years of motion graphics experience, directing Disaster Chickens (5 short animated stories) which have played on Amazon Prime ever since. I then began to learn screenwriting. 'WitchfinderZ', 'Must Love Pets', and The Golden-Mile Gauntlet were born thereafter, followed by the treatments for 'Mother Fungus', 'H.A.C.K.s' and 'Black Dog'. At college, I was very interested in making things and steered away from computers. The art & design course at Blackpool & the Fylde college was great for teaching a more hands-on approach to design and I excelled in using various materials in my work. I have good drafting skills and a practical knowledge of using hand tools and machinery. I'm methodical and have a good attitude to work and challenges along with a commonsense approach that comes with experience. Over the last five years I've gained more insight into the industry working as a supporting artist, where I’ve observed runners, costume departments and assistant directors in their on-set duties on shows such as; Peaky Blinders: Ripper Street: Victoria and more recently: World on Fire, and: All Creatures Great and Small. I worked on location on all of the features and in a studio environment on All Creatures Great and Small, taking note of all things design and construction related in regards to set design. I am looking for a way in to the industry with the goal of moving up through the ranks and ultimately creating my own feature. I hope to achieve this through hard work, net-working with like-minded team players and shear determination.
