Handled a few roles on this job over three months: made technical features to help explain a new class of foiling cats powered by wingsails, interviewed the principles for character stories, and analysed the racing in the TV gallery for the Half Time Show during Live broadcasting. It was an astonishing story. Worked hard. Proud to part of the 100 or so crew.
Director/Cameraman - BBC Geoff Holt Atlantic, 2009-10
Another outstanding story, with amazing principle characters. I had to live this one with Geoff and his carer Susana, sailing across the Atlantic with them filming for BBC World News. It was a positive story over the Christmas of 2009 and New Year of 2010, so they came to us at sea live via satellite six times to a global audience. I also fed back several video news packages, hooked Geoff into 22 BBC Radio ISDN interviews, and then made a 30-minute BBC documentary.
Cameraman - Fastnet Record onboard Banque Populaire, 2011
My ninth Fastnet and a phenomenal experienced aboard the biggest and fastest trimaran in the world. Filmed onboard for IMG's Spirit of Yachting, distributed through BBC Worldwide, and packaged French interviews for Eurosport. The race record, and course record, still stands.
Cameraman/Director - America's Cup Uncovered/Discovered - Channel 4, Sky etc
Filmed segments for the weekly TV show for two years.
Director - Barcelona World Race 6 xs 30 mins documentaries, 2010
The story goal here was to explain the second edition of this tough, two-handed non-stop round the world race, still relatively unknown, and to hook into the strong characters. This clip is a condensed version of episode 1, courtesy of Sunset & Vine/APP and the organisers, FNOB. The series was translated into several languages and broadcast widely.
Bizarre but totally awesome song about being a Fox, 2013
