Directing

The work I do focuses primarily around issues of representation and empowerment of marginalised people and communities. A large amount of the work I’ve done has focused around homelessness, including Sleeping Rough in Bristol (my first venture into documentaries), Crisis and Hope, a two-part short documentary series on homeless services in Bristol, and Sleeping Rough, a feature-length docudrama over two years in the making. In 2016, I was also commissioned by the Exeter Phoenix to make The Hardest Fight, a short film about boxing and depression.

A common theme in my films is blending styles to tell real-life stories and educate about real-world issues. I like to use my skills and background in documentary-making to create stories and films that feel real, and get across a message, but at the same time build a world and characters of their own. At the moment I’m exploring life inside Young Offender Institutions, and telling the untold stories of the young men and boys that end up incarcerated.
