The Worlds Most Scenic Railway (Channel 5)
Set up access, found stories and assembled schedules while managing a team of researchers for this new specialist factual six part series. I then assisted the PD on location as part of a two person shooting team (A7S, FS7) capturing sequences on history, geology, engineering and wildlife from across three continents. On location, I would lead these interviews, often taking us to remote places; to the top of mountains, along rapids and through Canadian bear territory. Experience rigging mini cams on moving vehicles; helicopters, trains, cars.
The episode I directed, New Zealand was voted “Critics Choice” – Sunday Times & “Pick of the Day” – Daily Mail
Here are a few of my shots from the series:

Women in Adventure Film 2019
First camera, directed and edited.
My entry into a The Women’s Adventure Film Competition ran by The British Mountaineering Council. The brief was to create a film that challenged the public perception of women who do adventurous things. Women in adventure are women from all backgrounds – ofter women who you might not imagine are adventurous when you see them at home or work. Winners are announced at ShaFF 2019, wish us luck!
Inside Out – Climbing outside for the first time can be a bit daunting, but with some new friends, a bit of determination and lots of tea, there is nothing stopping you from having an adventure.
The Tree Guys
