I have been an amateur filmmaker since 1966, first on 8mm film, then 16mm and latterly on video in various formats. I have won many awards for my productions worldwide, including at British international festivals. I was fortunate enough to have three of my films shown at London’s National Film Theatre.
Professionally, I worked for an advertising company for twelve years, during which time I helped to shoot and edit corporate videos and television commercials. I was an organiser of the Guernsey Lily International Film Festival, which ran for nineteen years and was considered one of the top two British festivals.
I joined the IAC in 1970 and became a Fellow of the Film and Video Institute in 1982. My love of cinema goes back to my first visit to our local Odeon when I was about five years old, and this passion for the film will always remain with me.
