I recently gave a talk about the making of the canal episode of the Bald Explorer to the Shrewsbury and Newport Canal Trust and their members at their annual AGM. Apparently it went down very well and was enjoyed by all present. This was fabulous news and I have decided that I would like to give more talks about my work as a film maker and my enthusiasm for heritage and history.
I am not sure if there are exciting circuits, agents or managers that deal with booking speakers, but I would like to make it known that I am available for groups and societies to give an hours talk. For the moment, I am not charging, but something towards the travel expenses would be appreciated.
The Making of the Bald Explorer talk ranges from how I approach each film, the research undertaken, the location visits, the process of shooting, choice of music and editing. I also cover my background, how I became a film maker and my influences; my experience in children’s television, the various pilots programmes I have made to sell ideas to the broadcast industry and my fun as a mime artist, fire eater and circus performer as well as a walk on and extra in some of Britain’s best loved TV shows.
If you are interested in having an entertaining, enthusiastic speaker for an event you are having, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
