Man with a Movie Camera...
BAFTA FULLBRIGHT SCHOLARSHIP's youngest ever recipiant Carl studied filmmaking at The Royal College of Art and screenwriting at the University of Southern California. Short film The Cutter, starring Brian Cox, was Oscar shortlisted and led to the much-loved British surf movie Blue Juice staring Ewan McGregor, Sean Pertwee and Catherine Zeta Jones.
Carl has a global CV credited with US studios, the BBC and C4. He was a brand advocate for Sony Worldwide and has directed award winninjg commercials. This year will see the broadcast of The Wine Show, UFC and a new online series.
Carl's work is linked by warmth and charm, the unique combination of People, Perfromance and Personalities. From Hollywood stars to non actors it's all about truth and believability - "I believe no one buys a product just because it looks good: we buy it because we “feel” something about the product or the situation it’s in. To create that feeling you have to engage. To engage you have to tell that product’s emotional story in the right way."
They might teach this stuff at film school but you have to have a CV like Carls to deliver.
