Growing up playing football was a big part of our lives, we can all recall fond memories of games we used to create and play. In this film for Chevrolet, I wanted to take it back to how it was when we were younger. Using our imagination and creativity to enhance the pleasure of playing football on the estate. Staring my brother and friends from around my local area. Viva la Futbol!

Directed by myself & James Partridge.

Moving away from the glamour of top tier football, I wanted to highlight a brand of football that is not really celebrated but is followed with passion and excitement. Wanting to explore the lower leagues, the core of english football, and finding out what this particular place means to the players and fans.

"The Burrell Twins" is a film about Scott and Dean; identical twins at the start of their professional boxing careers. They are coached by the legendary Hector Roca, responsible for a number of World Champions.

After finishing their respective degrees the twins moved to New York to turn professional. They recently returned to the UK for their British debut. 

I spent a number of days with the two of them; discussing their past, present and future. This documentary film is the result of our time together.

Idea Drug

When I am creating or cultivating a new idea, im so excited, im constantly thinking about it and how I can develop it. I love it. I crave it. Its my high.

When I have finished and/or cant think of a good new idea, i get into a slump… depressed as fuck just waiting for something special to come.

I need my fix
