I trained as a Production Manager but was soon keen to get involved in the creative side of filmmaking, so I wrote and directed my own short film and fell in love with the production process from start to finish.
I taught myself to edit using FCPX and set up a Film Production company, carpenterfilm.com. We work with our clients to create edgy music videos, powerful corporate films and inspiring documentaries.
I love the fact that you can't do this alone - every project is the result of creative input, technical skill and collaboration with other talented people, and on every job you learn how to overcome a different challenge.
As a director, I aim to tell stories that stir emotions, challenge injustice, move people to action, and inspire others to be the best that they can be. As a producer, I think integrity, resourcefulness and a great network of contacts are essential. I look forward to meeting other like-minded creative people.
