1996 - PRESENT
NATIONAL FILM SCHOOL
HEAD OF DOCUMENTARY DEPARTMENT
Leads probably the most prestigious and successful documentary programme
in the world, helping a small number of young filmmakers who compete for
eight places per year to explore documentary language and find a voice
of their own.
Graduates from the course make a major contribution to
documentary culture around the world. There have been outstanding student successes in
festivals, theatrically and on television. Just to mention three
graduates from the last few years.
Not only has this year's graduate, Vanessa
Stockley's film"Emma And Ben" been bought by the BBC Wonderland,
she has already completed a First Cut film for Channel 4.
