About Andrew

I started in the UK film industry in 2006 working in the production office on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix before going on to the special effects department on Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows parts I & II, and the Art Department on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

I have been working for Warner Bros Entertainment since 2011 at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, UK.

My first short film ‘Alleyman’, a drama set in the trenches of the First World War went on to win the British Lion Award at the 2011 British Independent Film Festival and I have a number of short and feature projects in development.
