I am an aspiring film director with a degree in animation. My passion for films specifically have stemmed from my childhood when i was so amazed by the spectacle of filmmaking. As i have grown older and reached my early 20's i started developing a deep interest in storytelling and drama in films. Although i have a degree in animation which does come in handy for all sorts of reasons, it was always the idea of making a film and telling a story which an audience can engage in that solidified my desire to want to work in films and become a film director. I am a self confessed movie geek and love watching films and going to the cinemas, where i get my daily inspirations from. I have a lot of heroes that i look up to in filmmaking and their work inspires me all the time, one particular director who has had a significant influence on me is Christopher Nolan. My biggest fear has always been that people would tell me that i would have no chance of making it into the film industry and in some instances my friends and family have not always believed in me. But my hunger and desire to succeed as well as my motivation on why i want to make films have always driven me on. I am still a beginner in filmmaking but becoming a film director is my ultimate goal. I have directed two experimental short films on a low consumer camera for my first foray into filmmaking and now i have recently purchased a Digital SLR, which i am hoping to take my work to the next level by presenting it in a professional manner. I am and always have been a collaborative person so i like working with people from different backgrounds and profession in a team together. Currently i am planning on shooting two short films very soon which i plan to submit to quite a few film festivals so at the moment i am on the lookout for anyone who wants to collaborate with me whether that be actors, music composers, DP, Gaffer etc. Please feel free to message me if you wish to collaborate or want to know further information about me and my work.
