About

Independent filmmaker based in Greater Manchester. I gained my BA (Hons) in Film & Media Studies from Manchester Metropolitan University (2006) and Masters degree in Fiction Film Production from the University of Salford (2007).

In 2008 I began lecturing in Creative Media Production at Burton and South Derbyshire College and since then I've taught filmmaking at Bradford College, Brooksby Melton College, Clarendon Sixth Form College, Bury College and University of Worcester.

Whether working on a short film, documentary or music video, I am interested in creating work of a highly personal nature. My films often focus on the building and/or breaking down of a relationship and revolve around the universal themes of love, longing, isolation, loneliness, heartbreak and regret: StepWa/onder, Over and New are examples of this.

 

In 2017, I began production on my first feature film, 'X', which stars Terence J Corbett, Jennifer Hayden, Andrea Pizza and Johnny Byrom. The film was shot on location across the UK and is currently being submitted to international film festivals.

Alongside my personal film work, I've also completed the cinematography for a variety of projects, including 'The Raven On The Jetty' (2013), 'Cleft Lip' (2017), 'Going For Goldeneye' (2017) and 'Distraction' (2017).

Besides my independent filmmaking, I also work under the EP Showreels banner to provide actor showreels and promotional videos: www.epshowreels.com
