In 2017, I started to follow my ambition to become a writer director and teamed up with long-term friend and filmmaker Nick Swannell to produce and direct DANCING ALONE in February 2017. The 15 minute short film won Best British Drama and, having resurrected my acting career after a break of 20 years, I also won Best Actor at the Discover Film Awards in October that year. DANCING ALONE is being distributed by Gonella Productions.
Virginia Orr joined our team to produce our second short film, TAKE ME BACK, in February 2018. I wrote the script, co-directed the film and also took the lead role. The film is now being submitted to film festivals and has won Best Editing laurels at the London Independent Film Awards and has been selected for the Catfish Shorts Film Festival in London. I am developing feature projects as well as working on a solo short film shooting in Dorset in summer 2019.
We are preparing to shoot the pilot of a new short-form drama, THEY THEM US in London November 2019.

Filmmaking forms part of my work creating marketing and social media campaigns for charities such as Drum Works and the Edinburgh TV Festival and events such as the Chelsea Fringe Event, Cranbrook Goes Nuts in May and the Parkhouse Award. A selection of my work is in the carousel below.
