My Life: Breaking Free -
A documentary that I was the shooting assistant producer on was aired a couple of weeks ago. Breaking Free tells the story of three 12 year olds who happen to have Down’s Syndrome and we follow them as they start to break free from their parents. Here’s a link to a clip which didn’t make it in to the final film but is a great intro to our main character Ruben.
Tonight I have a film going out on BBC1’s Inside Out (Yorks and Lincs) at 7.30pm that I produced and directed.
(If you’re out of the area it’s available on Sky channel 957, Virgin 858 and Freesat 967) which tells the story of Billy Burton….

John was once an army officer but currently resides in Swansea where he drives his beast of a motorbike. He got hit by a car in a Tesco carpark and had to have his leg amputated, this doesn’t stop him from living life to the full though. He was a pleasure to photograph, a gentle man who didn’t take himself too seriously.
Click here and here to watch two films I recently made for BBC’s Inside Out about young disabled people looking for somewhere to live in the UK. We used London and Bath as bases and went undercover to various estate agents.
A picture from a new project I have been working on. A commission from Art In Site - these photos show the patients of ALAC (Artificial Limb and Appliance Centre) in Swansea enjoying themselves. We have also been working on a film too….

Having had neglected this blog for the best part of this year (mainly due to this amazing person being an awesome distraction) I think it’s probably time to catch up and post some of the work that I have been up to recently. Bear with me as I post pieces of work probably in the wrong order and try to explain a little of what’s been going on!

Still from Sonata - photo by Mustafa Boga
Cast: Anne Zander and Alistair Donegan, DoP: Holly Cocker, Sound: Adam Asnan, Writer: Anne Zander
This month I directed a short film called Sonata which was conceived and developed by Anne Zander and I. We shot the one scene in my living room with our 5Ds and Adam’s incredible sound equipment, it was liberating to shoot an idea with such a simple set up and no budget. Waiting now to find the time to sync and edit it - it seems all you need is time to get an idea to paper and then to screen.
Was lucky enough to photograph Erwin whilst filming an interview with him for a 3D: Darkly Digital and Devine, a new film by Robert Adanto which is going to be fantastic!
