The short film ‘Bodies’, that I shot with director B Welby-Delimere is being developed into a feature. The story revolves around similar characters in the same environment. Below is a trailer to promote the film which I will be working on with the same creative team. It’s going to be exciting to see this story brought to life!

Shield 5, a unique series made for Instagram, is released today. I shot the 28 part series with director Anthony Wilcox, and producers Mark Hopkins and Declan Reddington in October last year. The series was written specifically for Instagram, with each episode sitting at 15 seconds long. The aim was to try a new approach to story telling, by bringing a cinematic look and high production values to the smallest of screens.
The crime thriller, inspired by suspenseful features 3 Days of the Condor and The Fugitive has been gathering some nice attention from the media. You can read about the project at the links below:
It was great fun shooting and felt like a very current way of telling a classic story. You can watch the series on Instagram by following @sheildfive. Enjoy!
I recently wrapped on the entirely unique short film, Sarah Chong is Going to Kill Herself. The film was directed by Ella Jones, written by Elaine Gracie and produced by Alexandra Blue alongside Creative England, Big Talk and Baby Cow as part of the Funny Girls Scheme. The film is a surreal workplace fantasy in which a maltreated receptionist decides to take matters into her own hands. Hands which may well contain grenades. Attached is a gallery of images with BTS stills and frames from the film as well as some insight into how we shot it and the visual approach. Read more…
I’m thrilled to share the news that Bodies will have its world premier at BAFTA and OSCAR qualifying Palm Springs International Shortfest. It will be joined by Patriot which has also been selected for its North American premier following Cannes.
Fulfilament will have its world premier at Edinburgh International Film Festival where it is in competition for the McLaren Award for New British Animation. We spent 8 months filming and bringing to life these little lightbulbs for this 6 minute short, so this is wonderful news! Details below.

I am very happy to share the news that ‘Out of Sight‘ has been officially selected for the Sundance Film Festival 2015, where it will have its world premiere. I shot the film in February 2014 alongside director, Nick Rowland. The film was made during our time at the NFTS and is the first piece shot on digital as part of the course, after a year working solely with celluloid. The festival takes place at the end of January, where Out of Sight will be playing 4 times in the International Narrative Shorts category. Sundance state that,
The 2015 Short Film program is comprised of 60 short films selected from 8,061 submissions.
Along with several other core crew members, I will be in Utah during the festival to represent the film.
Women in film is a topic that has become increasingly present in the media, which is a really good thing and long overdue. In a way it’s a shame that it is a thing that needs to be talked about at all, but it’s positive that it is happening regularly considering the state of affairs. The statistics are terrible, particularly for female cinematographers. As Indie Wire’s article that I link to below states,
In the last five years, women accounted for just 3% of the cinematographers among the 250 top-grossing films. Even more shocking, no female DP has ever been nominated for an Academy Award.
I’m working with director, Eva Riley on our National Film and Television School graduation film, Patriot. Attached are a gallery of images from our numerous scouts in the Kent countryside. Read more…
