If you have a piece of performance (dance, music, live art etc) to film, for which you need a director - I can work closely with the creator to maintain the original vision and help it work best for the camera.
If you want to make a piece of dance specifically for film - I can bring my expertise, as mentor or director, to your project, sensitive to your intent.
If you have children of any age from whom you need to extract a performance in front of camera – I can get you that performance, and with them looking happy about it!
If you are producing TV or film for children – I can instill the particular requirements of pacing, framing and styling that will grab and sustain the attention of a young audience.
