Ok so directing two lightweight faux documentary dramas about bus tours through Europe may not be many people’s idea of an interesting project, or showreel material. But these films were fun to make. I had a gang of four uninhibited actors with an ace crew, and we travelled through France and Italy making something out of not very much. It required imagination, a lack of pretension and a willingness to just muck in.

High point; shooting a romantic scene guerrilla style in old Rome was a real high wire act.
