Need Some Help and Encouragement ?
Believe me.. I know how it feels!
I actually stumbled into the Film & TV business when I went to college to study Graphic Design.. However, I soon discovered that I was actually interested in "Communicating".. but using moving images, sound, typography and Graphics!
So, at the end of my first and somewhat tricky year, the college gave me the chance to stay. They organised external "Tutors" to come in and help me. Over the next two years, this experience was used to develop the basis of a new "Media" course at the college.
When I graduated, I joined the BBC Film Department at Ealing Studios as an Assistant Dubbing Mixer. Over next five years, I was lucky enough to be also trained as an Assistant Film Cameraman and then as a Production Assistant.
I left the BBC to start my own company "CAL Productions" to produce and record Bands, as well as shooting all sorts of "Corporate" films and videos.

So, over forty years later, here I am having been lucky enough to travel all over the World shooting Features, Commercials, Music Clips and Corporate films. I’ve won Awards, worked with fantastic Artists, Actors and Crew... as well as pioneering VFX in London during the 80's by founding CAL Videographics the UK's first computer graphics company... as well as several other companies in Switzerland and Germany.
Now it's "Payback" time!
