Starting filmmaking at an early age, he knew he wanted to be a filmmaker in his Primary School years. He started experimenting with filming very early on, writing stories and has always aimed towards being a Film Director.
He learnt early on that there are time and budget constraints in making films, so he started trying to do the best work he could with the limited resources he had.
He started hiring actors to star in his films from 2006.
His first Short Film 'Stones' was screened at the Super Shorts Film Festival in 2006 run by Talent Circle
It was screened on Television and won a small award of £250

|Previous Full Time Work|
Cruise Ship Videographer (2009/2010)
We are currently working on two new shorts films:
#ToDream - (2018) - Filming (TBC)
Light My Way - (2019) - Filming (TBC)
+ A date film with a twist, a chase sequence that is similar to Run Lola Run.
Although I am a Videographer, I study hard like a Cinematographer in trying to achieve the best cinematic look.
I've recently been interested in the Anamorphic Look. You often see this look in the mainstream Hollywood films from the 1970s onwards.
Some of the characteristics of Anamorphic are:
* The Flares and Light Streaks
* Stretched Vertical Blurry Background with the bokeh (soft) lights being stretched as well.
What we also offer:
| 4K Video and 120 frames per second Slow Motion using the Sony A6300 |
| Low-Light Cinema Lenses that achieve blurry backgrounds |
| Low-light filming with the Sony Video Camera |
| A Professional Gimbal/Steadicam |
| Creative Steadicam work using a very good auto-focus |
| My Passion on Supporting Others |
I am very passionate about my work and supporting others, I would like to aim to help aspiring filmmakers in the future.
Cinema is one of the most accessible and powerful narratives that we have to make real change.
So instead of following your passion, take it with you to get the opportunities that are out there.
