BA (Hons) Film and Moving Image Production
I have always been fascinated by audience reaction to a narrative. I was always that annoying kid who would pester his friends and family with annoying ‘what would you do if?’ and ‘which would you rather?’ questions. It wasn’t until I made my first short film at 15 years old that I would go on to discover my passion for visual storytelling, realising that, through film, I could bring my characters, situations and scenarios to a potentially limitless audience.
I always focused on visual and action-based storytelling like my short “Meltdown”, but as I have progressed as a filmmaker, I have found myself wanting to tell more grounded and ‘human’ stories, like “Resolve”. I have used my time at NUA to explore and build on this, developing my own unique formula that employs those two approaches, as well as working to increase my confidence, communication, and organisational skills, to make myself more effective as a director. My personal motto is ‘act like a grownup, think like a child’.
