Since finishing my Masters Degree Producing in Film & Television, I initially started as a freelance runner working on a multitude of commercials & music promos. I then began to stray towards locations and got my first bit of feature work on ‘Children of Men’. I followed this up with ‘Blood Diamond’ and also worked on ‘Top Gear’. I was then recruited by The Space Men to run and manage their locations library. Since I started I increased sales by over 300%. After 3 years I then moved to one of the market leaders Unitbase.co.uk Ltd working alongside Director of Operations James Crawley. Here I acted as the accounts manger, doing much the same as I did at The Space Men, accumulating locations, negotiating fees and writing the hire agreements. Again the sales figures we had were very high. Since my turn at Unitbase, it was time to start my own venture, seeking to bring all that wealth of experience into running my own locations library.
