I am an independent documentary producer and director specialising in the arts and music - although I also make other kinds of films. I work mostly in the UK and France. Most of my finance comes from TV, but increasingly, I am looking for funding elsewhere as the films I make are not conventional TV fodder. My films are personal, I often shoot them myself, and I always try to reveal something essential to the subject without imposing too much of myself. I tread a fairly lonely path, guided by my instincts and passions, although I enjoy great creative relationships, not least with a couple of brilliant Bristol editors, Andrew Findlay and Rick Holbrook.
