Colin Skevington is an award winning film maker who has been making films since he was 13.  He started professionally in the film industry as a runner on a series of horror films in Sydney, Australia.  Back in the UK he worked for HTV in Bristol on a number of TV dramas. 

 

He became interested in the business side of film making taking on the role of distributor for the RSPB Film and Video Unit, licensing films to television companies and video distributors as well as negotiating co-production agreements with Channel 4 and the BBC Natural History Unit. 

 

Colin eventually became head of the unit which produced corporate, campaigning and promotional films as well as wildlife documentaries.   Colin left the RSPB to become a freelancer and created several television formats including 'In the Dark'  hosted by Julian Clary, which piloted with ITV in the UK and sold to 39 territories.  He also wrote scripts for the BBC2 entertainment show “Full House” with Francine Stock, Simon Callow and John Sessions.

 

Colin started Moon Watcher Media in 2006 and as an experienced film maker he  has created work for clients including local authorities, charities and companies like the Bank of Montreal, Virgin Trains and Network Rail.  For Colin the key to making a good film is to know the audience.  "It’s the rule of thumb.  You must know what you’re going to say and say it in a way that will engage and involve the audience."

Moon Watcher Media, Colin produces corporate, promotional and training films as well as dramas.  "We have created a number of social issue dramas and as a writer and director it is my passion to tell stories through film that open people to subject areas in unusual ways as well as to inspire them."

Colin produced and directed The Lossen, a supernatural drama about living your dreams, starring Linda Marlowe (House of Mirth, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) Sean Knopp (Dr Who, Replace, The Bible, 24: Live Another Day), and Albert Welling (Dr Who, Taboo, Outlander, HBO's Succession and Catherine The Great.)
