In summer 2016 I shot my first short documentary. When it got picked up by FilmConvert who then interviewed me about the film, I was pretty excited!

Why Jools?

I met Jools when I was walking around Cirencester on my lunch break, playing with a new camera I’d bought. I started filming him as he played his set and when he finished he called me over. We started chatting about filming and music, and as we spoke I found his story (what I’d learnt of it so far) really interesting. Here was a guy that had opted for giving up everything to live his dream of playing music and spreading joy to people as he did it. I found Jools really inspiring, and in learning about his story, he inspired me to start doing what I’ve always wanted to do – make films.

I was quite nervous at first because it was the first real film I’d ever shot and I wanted to make it the best I could. Plus I had to take a big chunk of time away from work to do it, something I’d never done before. But taking that step was the first positive action towards doing something that I’m truly passionate about and working hard to make it a success.
