Now almost two decades later I can honestly say that becoming a filmmaker really has been my calling. Nothing beats the feeling of taking an idea from script to screen, working with talent, and most importantly helping clients showcase their brilliant projects, especially those making a difference.
A large part of my professional career has been as a film educator. Being able to share my passion with equally as passionate young people has always been an important part of my journey. Admittedly I no longer teach film education but I do stil advocate youth media and involve young people in some capacity on the many shoots we do.
My main role is that of a director on most shoots, but on a day to day basis I conceptualise video project briefs, script write, storyboard, production plan, edit, or even get behind the camera myself to self shoot on some projects..
