BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

I began my career writing and directing for BBC1’s Doctors. I went on to write and direct four internationally acclaimed feature films for backers including Film Four, Screen West Midlands and Pathe. My fourth film The Marker is a thriller starring John Hannah and Cathy Tyson backed by Creative England. It was released in cinemas last year and can now be seen on Netflix.
I am hard of hearing and since 2004 I’ve been running my own training and production company 104 films specialising in disability and film. We worked on the BAFTA nominated Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll starring Andy Serkis. 2016 saw a Sundance premiere for our feature documentary Notes on Blindness which was released by Curzon and went on to win best documentary at the British Independent Film Awards and be nominated for three BAFTAs. I was also associate producer on the feature documentary Unrest which premiered in the main competition at Sundance 2017 and was shortlisted for the Best Documentary Oscar.
