Biography Fledgling Presenter, Editor, Cameras, Director, Producer, Locations. Mini-micro budget and big, BIG ideas!
I am Director of necessary productions, and have worked for nearly 30 years in the Education, Corporate and Charity sectors as a Business, Management, Administration and ICT Specialist. An experienced presenter and interviewer, I brought together a seasoned professional crew, award-winning writers, researchers and graduates to form an independent Production Company, with capacity to deliver content from conception through to HD broadcast mastering and delivery.
Formally Incorporated in 2008, necessary productions Ltd is a Devon-based Production Company dedicated to producing ethical, innovative non-fiction and narrative films that embrace the strength human spirit and the biodiversity of the living world.
Real-life stories, reality television and other nonfiction entertainment attract viewers and strengthen network brand identities. We're positioned to take advantage of this market by applying our experience to the evolving spectrum of broadcasters, technologies and producing partners.
necessary productions is a creative resource where ideas become cutting-edge digital reality. We combine an award winning scriptwriter, production studio and research department with a brand content creation company. Big ideas that readily translate into powerful cross-platform programs are always at the top of our agenda. We are designing our own EPKs (electronic presskit), original television programming, web and cross-platform content, and narrative films.
The real world continues to astound and shock me. I believe our portrayal of it will captivate the audience as well.
I am currently working with some of the most creative minds in the industry to develop fresh, innovative content. In the UK, necessary productions is proud to have partnered with David Hayman and Spirit Aid to embark upon its forthcoming three-part independent documentary series “Seeds of Change”. In the USA I have a full production crew ready and waiting – available to capture content at a moment’s notice.
We have the experience, expertise, imagination and passion, to deliver fresh content again and again
Down the line? Hmm... Well... I'm loving the whole creative process, dreaming all my conversations as a ScreenPlay, designing new films in the bath, researching all day every day on the old interweb, talking 'ideas' and making movies.
Apart from that, I have no ambition other than to see my own features topping the list on the silver screen, my political views represented in the media, 'the corrupt ones' brought to account, and my (to come) millions, well invested...
Oh, and I look forward to one day, celebrating the invention of calorie-free chocolate/champagne. My own brand, of course!
