About Dave

My Showreel and work is viewable on the website:

An award winning Director, I graduated from King Alfred's College, Winchester with a BA(Hons) in Drama, Theatre and Television, before completing my MSc in Film and Television from Napier University, Edinburgh. I am a full Professional Member of The Director's Guild.

Having been a filmmaker since 1994, I have had the opportunity to work with people such as Academy Award Nominee Gary Oldman, Terence Stamp, and Robert Carlyle. I have had four feature films produced, including "Dead Fish" and "Open Water 2: Adrift aka Adrift" and worked for New Line Cinema for three years as screenwriter on the development project "Roofworld". The budgets have been between $5m-$18m.

I have directed feature documentaries, music promos, corporate work, short films, and fashion promos. Among my credits are music promo "On My Own" for Ashli Lee Parker (featuring Tak Ozaki) in Los Angeles (Oct 2012), and the feature documenataries "The Shadow Scheme" (2013) and "The Trail of Dracula" (2013).

My focus has been to get films made with a range of talent, both established, emerging, and undiscovered.

There are selections of my work on my website, all of which have been shot and cut by myself:

I am based in Los Angeles, London and Warwickshire.

I am a UK passport holder, have a current, clean UK/EU driving license, and a current enhanced CRB.
