A quick chat...

When did you first start making videos?

With a miniDV camera and my friends in secondary school. Our video involved toy spaceships, a vacuum cleaner as an alien life form, and a Microsoft Windows screensaver acting as the stars we were traveling past in our spaceship (aka my friend’s mum’s bedroom). Why? Because our amazing sci-fi stories had to be told at the time.


What’s the best way to build a story?

I think a good story is one that portrays truth. What I mean by truth isn't 'actuality', it doesn't have to feel like a documentary. Truth for me are elements of life that we can relate to. Work, relationships, life, death. This also doesn't mean it has to be a drama - a sci-fi like Alien portrays truth by showing the characters not as 'spacemen' but as 'workers'. There's a scene where they discuss their financial problems and issues with their job - that's truth, so there's a stronger audience bond with them.
