Public bio

I'm a documentary filmmaker, campaign organiser and NationBuilder Architect. My new company is called FILM & CAMPAIGN and based in Edinburgh. I ran expressive.tv, my label for documentary services operating out of Munich, from 1994 to 2011. My most successful film was UPSTREAM BATTLE (Toronto IFF and 30 other fests around the world). I was a co-host of The D-Word from 2002 to 2014 and remain a special advisor. From 2011 to 2014, I worked as producer of marketing and distribution at the Scottish Documentary Institute in Edinburgh, building campaigns around films and testing new tools and strategies to make audience engagement more meaningful and sustainable.
