What was your path into film and TV?
I studied Architecture and Design Studies at the RCA where I was lucky enough to be taught by the production designer Anton Furst. The combination of his inspirational teaching and visiting Pinewood’s backlot to see his sets for the first Batman film resulted in a swerve off the path towards becoming a practicing architect and resulted in me applying for work in film and television. I was lucky enough to be offered a job in the design department at BBC Scotland where I learnt my craft under the guidance of some seasoned and talented designers. After 3 years there, the design department was disbanded and we all went freelance. I began to work as a production designer starting on the short film circuit and using this work to build a portfolio which resulted in more substantial projects coming my way.
It really is the most rewarding and challenging job. We are so lucky to be a part of this unique creative process.
