I have been making films since I was 13; I will leave you to work out how long that’s been.   I started in the film industry as a runner on a series of horror films in Sydney, Australia.  Back in the UK I worked for HTV in Bristol on a number of TV dramas. 


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


I eventually became head of the unit making corporate, campaigning and promotional films as well as wildlife documentaries.   I 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.  I also wrote scripts for the BBC2 entertainment show “Full House” with Francine Stock, Simon Callow and John Sessions.

I started Moon Watcher Media in 2006 and as an experienced film maker I have created work for clients including local authorities, charities and companies like the Bank of Montreal, Virgin Train and Network Rail.  For me the key to making a good film is to know your 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.

At Moon Watcher Media we not only produce corporate, promotional and training films, we also produce 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.

I wrote, produced and directed The Lossen, a supernatural drama about living your dreams, starring Linda Marlowe, Sean Knopp and Albert Welling. The production has won many awards around the world including the Grand Prize for Best Fantasy Short at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, the Grand Prize for Best Narrative Short at the Silver State Film Festival in Las Vegas and the Jury Award for Best Narrative Short and Best Director at the New Hope Film Festival in Pennsylvania , USA.   I have recently written two more Lossen scripts and we are working towards bringing a series of these films to the screen.
