Somers Town. September 2008 (80 mins. Tomboy Films) Dir. Shane Meadows Prod. Barnaby Spurrier PM: Erica Bensly
Shot on location in Somers Town and with the frequent participation of the local community. This film follows an unlikely fri endship between
teenage boys. The shooting process required great flexibility, both in scheduling and on set.

When I Was 12.(Feature Length One Off Drama for BBC2) Dir. Dominic Savage Prod. Ruth Caleb PM: Michas Kocs
This Bafta winning film was an improvised drama following two runaway girls, its cast and subject matter neccesitated detailed planning and
sensitivity, whilst the use of improvisation required great adaptability. We tried very hard to make a film in an unobtrusive manner, aware of the
environments we were working in and the needs of both the actors and non-professional participants.

COMMERCIALS: 1996 - 2008:
I have worked on over 500 commercials as 1st AD covering a vast range of situations from Motion Control to multiple
stunt sequences, stopping off at cats and dogs, and with many an hour spent with children of every age. I have shot
abroad in Argentina, Chile,Costa Rica, Dubai, Egypt, Thailand, Mexico, Barbados, Sweden, Denmark, Latvia, Czech
Republic, Romania, South Africa, France, Portugal and Spain, in deserts, cities, mountains and underwater.
