As many people know, I am quite a private person, but I love making films for the simple joy of it, not for the red carpets, or the showbiz glitter, but for the thrill of creating and developing a piece of visual media which can bring together old and new friends, create ever expanding new families of work, and which allows you to appreciate the world around you through a lens, by creating within these frames, worlds full of lush and interesting characters and narratives. To do this, with such other fantastic and creative people whom I've encountered, is what makes me smile everyday and will help me continue to love filmmaking for the rest of my life, no matter in what shape, way or form.


Lightbeam Productions can help you develop any project, from early conception,  through production, as well as post-production stages. Whether this be for a fictional short/feature film, factual product or corporate projects, we aim to provide the very best in ideas and final product.


So, thank you for having a look and taking the time to come browse this tiny little minuet section of the WWW, please leave me a message if you wish, whether you are fellow film makers looking to work with new people, or you are looking into having a promotional video made for your business. Either way,  I hope to hear from you all soon.

"Our battle, our struggle, is to create art. Our weapon is the moving picture. Because we have the moving picture, our paintings will grow and recede; our poetry will be shadows that lengthen and conceal; our light will play across living faces that laugh and agonise; and our music will linger and finally overwhelm, because it will have a context as certain as the grave. We are scientists engaged in the creation of memory... but our memory will neither blur nor fade"
