I love documentaries. They have provided me with a great learning ground for telling stories, interviewing people and experiencing events. Over the years I have written, produced and directed more than twenty short documentaries.

The first one was in 1997, Beauty In The Beast - The Vanity of Men, made while studying film & TV at QUT. This was shot on DVcam and edited using in a Avid editing suite. I learnt the importance of B-roll footage, sourcing interviews and dealing with non-actors to get a performance in front of the camera. 

In recent years I have made small docs based around bigger projects. For Pleasuresdrome, London's world famous gay and bisexual spa, creating short form online content has been a way for this client to communicate with the guests in an entertaining way. 

On Dressed As A Girl, the first feature documentary I produced, creating short docs helped engage with the fan base for this film. 

In 2019, as a fun project, I directed and produced The Crustmeister, as a 50th birthday gift for an old friend. However it also works as a standalone heartwarming short doc about the life of a kind person and the celebration of this by his friends and family. 

 

In the last few years, I made several short docs based around Peter Tatchell's campaigns. This was necessary to build trust between him and I, for my feature directorial debut, Hating Peter Tatchell. Through making these shorts I was able to see into his world, to get his perspective of the direct actions and the impact this has on him.
