My most recent achievements include working as an art department / graphics assistant on two BBC productions: Sherwood (House Productions); The Other One - Series 2 (Tiger Aspect). Over the last five years I've gained insight into the industry working as an art department / graphics assistant and initially as a supporting artiste, where I 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. 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. I'm a victim of trashy 80's and 90's straight-to-video movies, and after fifteen years in the world of advertising, 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 has played on Amazon Prime ever since. I then began to learn screenwriting and shortly after 'WitchfinderZ' (contemporary tale based on the Pendle Witches), 'Must Love Pets' (a horror based around a dating app), and 'The Golden-Mile Gauntlet' (Blackpool funhouse-monsters themed crime-caper) were born thereafter, followed by the treatments for 'Mother Fungus' (Invasion of the body-snatchers), 'H.A.C.K.s' (tech-war theme) and 'Black Dog' (revenge thriller).
