I have been a working filmmaker for over 20 years. Most relevant to my application to UWE is that in 2007 in collaboration with a longtime friend and colleague, I formed a niche production company with an equine focus.
(horseflyfilms.com and rareequinetrust.com)
From the sword to the plowshare, horses have been an integral part of who we are and what we become - and humankind owes them an incalculable debt. Together we produced hundreds of promotional films, and also began filming documentaries about horses and humankind. With the power of storytelling and our experience and knowledge of horses, we focused on rare equine breeds and vanishing horse cultures, creating a cinematic library dedicated to exploring diverse societies with unique stories centered around the horse.

Thank you for considering my application to UWE for the Wildlife Filmmaking MA .
