Director looking for HODs

I'm a Manchester based director looking for HODs for collaborations on future projects. I'm really interested to meet DoPs, production designers, art directors and make-up and costume. I mainly make genre film, so anyone with a particular interest in thriller, horror, sci-fi and sub genres would be ideal. Roles would be paid at NLW, wish it was more, however want to be transparent in regard to budget levels and funding. Would be great to meet those who know the limits of indie film, whilst also appreciating the creative freedom it can allow. For further information my website is

Good morning Helen how are you? I hope really, really, really, really, really well.

I’ma. DoP, working in television and feature drama, and I'd love to say hello and find out some more about your upcoming projects.

During the last year and a half I’ve been shooting some great projects. I came off a Netflix drama in the Andaman Islands, off the coast of Thailand, over a year ago and went straight onto a massive and very technical Netflix drama in Jordan and Nepal about a plane hijacking - more than a 1000 VFX shots; CGI planes, a fully realised Kandahar Airport built in Unreal Engine. Fascinating.

Then this past summer/autumn I radically shifted gears and spent some time in Cardiff on the second Famous Five for the BBC, with Mr. Nic Winding Refn running the show, which was a treat. Apparently they’re screening it primetime on Easter weekend - we’re pumped up. Lovely article on the BBC about it:

I’m just finishing up that hijacking series now: grading in Milan for three weeks. We're very excited to show people what we’ve done. My view: insane planes.

Anyway thanks ever so much for your time, crossing my fingers and toes there’s a chance we can work together at some point.

Have a good one!
