I am a graduate film maker who has worked in a chain cinema, programmed for an independent cinema, held community and pop-up screenings, worked in film making and broadcasting and digital media. I have made several films of my own and worked with indie film makers to create high quality films, usually on micro budgets and sometimes sending the films to other countries to be broadcast or distributed. I love cinema, and I'm always asked why I don't move to London to pursue mainstream film. I feel I shouldn't have to. I feel Scotland should take the reigns on it's film industry and provide for the professionals that work here.
