Award-winning London based film director and writer offering filmmaking lessons for beginners

Methodology

I offer sessions in line with what the student wants to get out of but by playing to their strengths with a focus on strengthening their weaknesses. I work towards making workshops as relevant and appropriate for the student's needs and for them to be able to apply it so to make their own works. I plan to professionally project manage, with full planning and programming responsibilities; as well as taking on new methods of filmmaking to a high and competent standard.

Experience

I'm an Award-winning Writer Director graduated at the London Film Academy in the UK. 
I won the script competition at the 2017 Cape Town International Film and Market Festival, for my feature script Ronald and also won the Development Award at the NFVF for this feature.

This true story is based on his father’s courage to have become one of the first opera singers of colour to have sung professionally during the apartheid regime in South Africa. A documentary of his father's life was produced by KYKNET

I got shortlisted at the Cannes Directors Fortnight Talent and the NFVF Black filmmakers fund for his feature film script 'My Shadow Laughed’ which is now in preproduction.

I won awards and got nominations for his short narrative films which are in the festival circuit worldwide. I directed British icon, Sir Donald Sinden in Blowing Dandelions selected by festivals internationally. 
My abstract film ‘See how they run’ made in South Africa was officially selected at the Paris Silhouette Film Festival. Nathan produced and directed children’s dramas and got nominated at the International Children's Film festival Bangladesh for best director. 

These films were selected as the Official Anti-bullying films in the UK associated with the Anti-bullying Alliance and the National Children’s Bureau. They also got programmed and premiered in over 18 Picture House Cinemas across the UK.

I produce and direct commercials, music videos, online video content for MTV International, EMI records, Sony BMG, Hogarth's UK, Spring Studios, Century Media UK. 

I produced and directed visual works as a resident at Cortoformo Art Collective in Spain, Access All Areas / Bradbury Studios working on social awareness campaigns, exhibiting works at the Hackney Museum, South London Gallery and the Barbican Cultural Centre in London. 

The recent campaign I worked on was with Access All Areas on their Mad House Re-Exit project where I was commissioned for 3 years to create works and made a total of 50 videos including 23 videos for their final project including adverts, short films, documentaries, installations and a hologram.
The project was about people with disabilities who lived in long-stay hospitals in the ’50s and ’60s.

Heres a link to the write up in the Timeout magazine.
