IT’S PEOPLE THAT MAKE FILMS
All my films are about people and their stories. It’s what makes each one compelling and entirely different. The best part of my job is finding out who you are, having a laugh with you, understanding your passions and what it is that’s important to you. It’s people that spark my artistic ideas and inspire me to strive for perfection in my films. Each of my films is an original piece of art that, as an artist, I can be proud of. But it’s you – you, and your stories – that really make the film.
EVERY FILM IS AN ARTWORK…
A wedding film, for me, is a work of art. Art, in its many forms, filmmaking, sketching, music-making, has always been an essential part of my life. A work of art, as I see it, whatever form it takes, communicates something of the human experience. As such, every film is a story and captures the essence of the people they’re about. Each one is surprising, beautiful and utterly unique. As these are the qualities of art and of the human person, so I strive to make them the qualities of every film I create.
…BUT CINEMATOGRAPHY IS A SCIENCE
I also have a degree in Maths and Computing. Filmmaking is a kind of combination between the curiosity, precision and perfectionism of a scientist and the imagination and flair of the artist – it’s hugely rewarding to use both sets of skills.
WEDDINGS – THE BEAUTY OF HUMANITY But why I love my job is really quite simple – it’s all about people. Meeting new people, learning from them, spending time with them, sharing my art with them. And there’s something particularly great about weddings – they seem to serve as a reminder of the very best about humanity, embodying love, joy, beauty and companionship. It is an honour to be a part of them and produce beautiful films out of these amazingly special occasions. This is my job and my passion.
