I'm a filmmaker, sound recordist, researcher and Quaker Meeting House Warden, based in the South West of England. In recent years, most of my film- and videomaking relates to local campaigns for sustainability. Previously I have ventured into comedy, music video, documentary, and animation.
I garnered two film festival successes with a tiny plastic toy mouse, mostly filmed in stop-frame animation on Super 8 ciné film. My short film Clockwork Mouse meets Robot 7 screened in four different countries and scooped an audience award at Szeged Super 8 Film Festival 2009. The spin-off project The Naked Animator made it into the Top 20 of the Straight 8 UK 2010 competition.
My most popular video to date, and my first to top 250,000 views on the internet, is the short naturist documentary Sometimes Illegal? that highlights the legal confusion about being nude in public places in England.
My main work is being Meeting House Warden for Bradford-on-Avon Quaker Meeting. In voluntary capacities, I am also webmaster of Experiment with Light, a member of the Experiment with Light Network Steering Group, and Treasurer of Climate Friendly Bradford-on-Avon.
In my spare time, you may often find me walking or cycling along the Kennet & Avon Canal. When staying indoors, I regularly play classical and flamenco guitars. Or I just sit down and read a good book, especially Hesse, de Beauvoir, Camus, and Zola. One of my ambitions in life is to get through Zola's entire Rougon-Macquart cycle in the original French (I've accomplished 17 books so far, just another three to go).
