filmwork

In September 2018, The Barbican Arts Centre put on a season of films to celebrate the Film and Video Workshop movement . My film - Welcome to the Spiv Economy - was selected. My work in Film and TV as a director, producer and executive producer was focussed on long form documentaries and idea-based series for BBC and Channel 4. In the years since I left the industry to develop an art practice , I have started to experiment with video. I shot the video for the Degrees of Freedom’s show : “ The Republic of Brexitopia “ in September 2017.
