“There is no point having sharp images when you’ve fuzzy ideas” – Jean-Luc Godard
After graduating in Film & Literature from Warwick University in 1994, David entered the camera department, first as a trainee, then as a clapper loader (handling a nostalgic substance called “film”), and later on as a focus puller, working on a wide variety of feature films, TV dramas, commercials and, perhaps most importantly, Robbie Williams’ ‘Millennium’video.
Seeking more creative challenges he moved up to lighting and operating, at first on a series of award-winning short films and later on feature films, TV dramas, commercials & pop promos. He was among the first people in the country to take delivery of the early Red cameras and has had the pleasure of working with some great brands including Burberry, Sony, Panasonic, Sky, Tesco, Avon & TRESemmé
During his time at Spectrecom, David has filmed and directed projects for Barclays, Cos, Benylin, Sifang, Miracle Gro, FFS (Friction Free Shaving), Tesco (Xmas recipes), AA (360), RSPCA, Wildstone, and Snaptech to name but a few…
Outside work, David likes to waste his time noodling around with music production, playing the piano very mediocrely, going to the cinema and taking photographs.
