Filmmaking is a real passion of mine. Of course, to make a film you need all the gadgets. A camera. Software to edit. Maybe even some fancy graphics. But one thing that makes films brilliant - are the stories they tell.
Stories come in all different shapes and sizes. Some might shock whilst some might surprise. Some my make you laugh and some will make you cry. Filmmaking is an art form that lets you bring ideas and concepts that might be hidden from view, into the light.
There is nothing that excites me more than meeting a person and letting them begin to take you on an inspired journey, leaving you with only one thing to say - wow. I am extremely proud of the films I have made and I can't wait for you to watch them. So, sit back, get comfortable and binge-watch!
