DOCUMENTARY

I make documentaries through a rigorous, journalistic lens – seeking out the human dimension of every story, no matter how complex, to reveal the clearest, most authentic truth inside.

My approach to documentary directing and producing

As a BBC trained Producer / Director, I create inventive, visually appealing documentaries, based on in-depth research and solid story-telling.

I approach every project through a rigorous, journalistic lens – seeking out the human dimension of every story, no matter how complex, to reveal the clearest, most authentic truth inside.

My documentary credits for BBC ONE / TWO / FOUR, Channel 4, PBS, ZDF, and BBC Radio 4 span Arts, History, Politics, Economics and Psychology. I have worked with on-screen talent such as Matt Frei, Michael Portillo, Sheila Hancock, and Kirsty Wark.

A documentary is made three times, in scripting, in shooting, and then again in the edit. Each of these stages offers me a different experience of creative collaboration, with researchers, contributors, crew, editors, execs and commissioners.

Project highlights

Project Nazi: Blueprint for Evil for ZDF / History 

Mobirise

I produced, directed and self-shot two of six episodes in this history series exploring the Nazis hollow propaganda promises. The parallels with nationalist ideologies on the rise in the USA and Europe today resonate throughout the series, first broadcast in 2018.
Collaborating with a team of producers, I self-shot green screen interviews, sequences and GVs on location from Babelsberg to Paris.

Mobirise

Championing a diverse group of experts, I found and secured expert contributors such as historian Hester Vaizey, curator Okwui Enwezor, psychologist Stephen Reicher, economic historian Klaus Kiran Patel, and political marketing expert Nicholas O'Shaughnessy.
In the edit, I contributed to international archive research – always on the lookout for the less familiar clip – and wrote scripts and voice-over in consultation with the series producer and executive producers.
