Me, As Film-Maker!

Literally, working in the field making a historical drama set in Jamaica where i was on location.

Me as filmmaker

My film-making interest started in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England when I joined a film club there and as a member learnt various skills by working on other member’s independent 16mm film productions.

I subsequently got £10,000 financing from Yorkshire Arts Association to finance my own short film “Just A Spring Chicken.”

I studied Film & Television on BA (Hons) degree course at the London College of Printing (now called the London College of Printing, now part of the University of the Arts London). I then attended the National Film & Television School in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, England and studied Film Directing.

Me, As Film-Maker! 1My attendance was financed by the BBC and Channel 4 who provided the money for me to make my next short film “Fish out of Water”.

My film career took a detour when I relocated back to Jamaica in 1987 but resumed again, three years later, when I worked as Producer/Director at CPTC 1 2 for two years.

I now intend to concentrate on making more films and am currently compiling ideas to work on.
