BIO

Tom’s is a writer/director of documentary ads and content. His story-telling is diverse, beautifully composed and radiates warmth. He’s covered Wild Horses in Colorado, Sharks in Western Australia and crazy Norwegian inventors starved of sunlight in Northern Europe. He’s clearly a director who likes a challenge.

He’s worked with a host of broadcasters and producers picking up numerous awards and nominations along the way including the most prestigious Documentary award in the US (the IDA’s) and Europe (The Grierson Award). He’s shot in the furthest flung corners of the globe from Siberia to Sierra Leone, Peru to Taiwan and Paris to, er… Dunstable. In fact he’s shot on six of the seven continents with the one remaining ambition being Antarctica; so all Albatross based scripts, with or without wafers, gratefully received…

Tom prides himself on bringing cinematic beauty to documentary filmmaking. He also likes it when things are funny and moving - and genuinely believes in the power of documentary to impact the world and reach audiences in the most profound and extraordinary way. He considers doing his job a 'bloody massive privilege’ and can’t quite get over the fact he gets paid to turn great stories into films.

Tom plays guitar in the Noise Collective ‘Silverhead’ which sounds like a racket if you ask me, and likes to take pictures of Standing Stones, so if you see a man hammering away on a Gibson SG whilst knee deep in a bog, that’ll be him. No wonder he’s a Rogue...
