ok you asked...
here's some of what i've worked on outside of directing
i was in the role of 'ed of stuff' working as producer on unusual projects for saatchi london for a while...
these included work on multi award winning t-mobile events... 'dance' at liverpool street station, 'singalong' at trafalgar square (amongst other things, i bartered with marty at sony atv new york for the rights to 'hey jude' while my son listened to 'an unusual bedtime story' (not proud but hearing 13500 people sing it on a loop for 20 minutes brought tears to the eye)), angry birds live - negotiating with rovio for the rights to make a full scale version of their angry birds game in a plaza in barcelona, making film for golf's european tour with their own broadcast crew which won lots of awards and working with katy perry and t-mobile europe on her almost invisibly branded music video for 'firework' which won mtv music video of the year. (250 fans from 8 countries appeared in the video and the t-mobile content was made around that story for life's for sharing)
i worked with mother london on a number of exciting projects including 'you are powerful' for amnesty and perhaps most excitingly heading up production of a genuine edinburgh stage show mounted for the duration of the edinburgh fringe festival at the assembly rooms, george street for unilever. 'pot noodle the musical' made national news and enjoyed huge audiences
before going directing i wanted to get a bit of knowledge. i've been a production company runner, pa, production manager, producer, had my own production company, ep'd for other production companies, and worked in agencies. i've taken the 'directing the actor' course at n.y.u. and a screenwriting course at st martins, i've made short films, run a short film competition, i work on another film competition for jameson, work on events and movie stuff with elevenfiftyfive. i generally like to get involved in good stuff. i think i said i have won awards but i don't like the term award-winning. i will definitely change my mind if i can ever say bafta or academy in front of those words
i like clients. and everyone who's invested to the same degree in doing a great job of a great idea
if i ever had a motto it's just:
