Documentary

As a filmmaker, I think there’s no better way to tell a story than through documentary production. I love filming peoples stories and bring it to life.

My Story About The Documentary

Man Down

The Documentary

After months of filming, editing and writing, I finally produced my first ever feature film documentary which was narrated by Shaun Dooley called ‘Man Down' - a film that could make a difference to the many men who struggle in silence.

The people in this film show true bravery and a willingness to help others. We discussed their personal journeys with their own mental health and some, their loved ones and people they know. We explored the mechanisms they had used to cope at their worst and how they could see attitudes and services around mental health changing in the future. The reasons for their involvement were for both self healing and to help others.

Revisiting such deep wounds proved a huge mental and emotional challenge for them all and I am very proud to have been trusted with such raw and difficult life stories.

My film has since had great success with a total of six public screenings, numerous corporate screenings, school screenings and in October 2019, 'Man Down' won Best Documentary at the “I AM Film Awards 2019”.

Feedback Of Viewers 

"Wow! What an truly incredible documentary. A massive credit to all the people who have spoken out and who were involved in the making. There really is help out there so please don’t be afraid to speak out. This video made me so emotional and makes you realize how lucky we are to live the lives we do"

"It was a truly poignant and thought provoking film. Upsetting and raw but a necessary watch. If the showing of this film enables every person that saw it to then help someone who is having suicidal thoughts, then the job has been done. I have boys. I want them to know it’s ok to talk. I want them to be aware of man club. I want them to be aware of choices and support"

The Documentary

Following the huge success of my first documentary "Man Down",

I decided to revisit the topic of mental health. The film covers stories on mental health in both male and females on subjects such as eating disorders, bullying and cyber bullying, Covid-19, Black lives matter and much more.

Stirling's War

My Story About The Documentary

Stirling's War

The Documentary

An RAF pilot (Flight Sergeant Robert Stirling) who mistook greenhouses for the White Cliffs of Dover and parachuted into German occupied territory (Guernsey, Channel Islands).

 

Robert Stirling then spent four years of the Second World War as a prisoner of war following his capture by the Germans. Sergeant Robert Stirling was part of the Royal Air Force's 87 Squadron and lost his bearings while chasing a German bomber towards France in April 1941.

 

The young pilot, then 23, realised he was dangerously low on fuel and attempted to return to Exeter, Devon, where he was stationed.

 

Sgt Stirling's compass was broken and during his attempt to navigate back to base he believed the reflection of the thousands of greenhouses was the famous chalk cliffs on the Kent coastline.

 

Believing he was on 'safe ground,' he bailed from his Hawker Hurricane aircraft. Instead he found himself on the uninhabited Lihou Island, close to Guernsey which at the time was under German rule.
