When was the first time you realised you wanted to make films?
I sent away for a super 8 kit from the classified section of my dad’s newspaper when I was 11. It was plastic. I still have the camera and it was so so exciting! I wanted to remake JAWS on Rhyl beach and this was the time I realised I could make my imagination have a place telling stories.
What was the last project you worked on / made?
Just finished shooting SAVE THE CINEMA for Sky cinema.
What are you up to now? What is the next project you’re working on?
I am editing the film now. I feel very lucky in a time of a pandemic to be making a movie.
