Trilogy of Films with Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott

In 2015, Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott started to create a new album, the follow-up to the 2014 success “What Have We Become”. As part of the publicity for the album, I was asked to make a trilogy of promo films that documented different stages of the creative process, starting in the first week of rehearsals, and following Paul and the band all the way through to the final mixing process. It was great to get behind the scenes with some amazing musicians and to see first hand the evolution of the songs and the development of the...

Shipwrecked – Battle of the Islands (Channel Four)

The original island-based reality show and T4’s flagship series, returning in a primetime slot and attracting huge ratings along with headline-grabbing controversy! I was a location P/D responsible for telling the stories of romance, argument and subterfuge on Shark and Tiger Islands as they won hearts and killed chickens to try and win the weekly new arrival and a share of £70,000. Shot in an observational style with many format points, the role required confidence and humour with a patient, light touch to bring the best out of a cast...

Rail Cops (BBC1)

Rail Cops (BBC1)

I spent 6 months following British Transport Police officers as they dealt with assaults, suicides, football hooligans and lost luggage! The unpredictable and fast-moving nature of the work called for responsiveness to situations that were sometimes volatile and often sensitive. In addition to a strong instinct for stories, I needed an approach that did not upset the public, but that encouraged a relaxed, natural humour from the...

Anti-BNP European election campaign

In the European elections of 2009, the far right party BNP, had candidates standing across the UK. The serious risk of having fascists elected as Members of European Parliament led HOPE not hate to produce a series of hard-hitting videos to encourage people to get out and vote. This film is one of the most serious. Warning: contains strong...

Pete Doherty – Love Music Hate Racism

Pete Doherty was the highlight of a Love Music Hate Racism gig at Stoke’s Britannia Stadium in 2009. I was part of a small crew that covered the event for LMHR and gave them some exclusive backstage interviews. The footage was released through a social media campaign that helped to raise the turnout of young people in the European elections. The following video is a simple edit that includes a couple of minutes intro from the compère, whilst we can see Pete and Drew McConnell getting ready to go onto stage. I particularly like the...
