Charlie is a sincere, thoughtful and natural young filmmaker with an instinctive desire to celebrate the beauty of the everyday.
A brave filmmaker with an uncanny ability to unearth a sensitive story – and often with limited resources, Charlie’s films have a level of empathy and cinematic sensibility that you’d expect from a director with many more years – and a lot more funding – behind them.
Charlie’s work includes ‘United by Summits’ for Adidas Terrex, a series of four films, filmed over four months, in four countries. Charlie’s sensitive filmmaking reflected how inclusive nature can be by focusing on community, personal goals, and empowerment in these inspiring films.
Recently Charlie directed a film for Copa 90 and the mental health charity MIND. The film tells how grassroots Sunday League football can be a vital lifeline. It’s a beautifully shot and a heartfelt depiction of regular people affected by the intense isolation of lockdown. The film showed a clear authenticity that is reflected in all Charlie’s work and is what drives his desire to tell human stories.
Charlie graduated with a Media degree and spent the next two years working every job from a (self-confessed) terrible sales advisor in an electronics store to a (self-proclaimed) great bartender, to finally an editor at McCann Manchester where he really got to learn about the industry and home-in on what inspired him most. Throughout it all he never stopped making ‘stuff’ in his spare time, running around town with his camera, capturing the mundane in all its glory. Whether it was photography, short films or music videos – “because it was fun, and that was enough for me.”
