I directed, wrote, shot and edited the Vote Leave referendum campaign TV broadcasts, as well as some online films as part of the British referendum on membership of the EU.
In 2019 I was brought out of political videos semi-retirement to direct and produce the film production behind Dominic Raab’s 2019 Conservative Leadership campaign for Prime Minister, before being drafted in to improve the video content for Jeremy Hunt’s leadership campaign, and help sharpen up his image in the final round against Boris Johnson.
I made several videos for Jeremy Hunt in the final weeks of the campaign, following him on the campaign trail, which had an extremely tight turn around - shot, edited and posted on social media on the same day.
The videos I made for Dominic Raab were widely covered in the National press, received some of the highest viewing figures online of all the candidates, and were praised for their professionalism with the times writing an article about me. The videos I made for Raab also entered into popular culture, being parodied in a comedy sketch by Harry Hill.
