The World of filmmaking is constantly evolving. Back in 2007, YouTube was growing rapidly, however indie filmmaker Tom Swindell, whilst popular on the platform, had designs on making it at the BBC. With shrewd moves, style and attitude, Tom made his own luck.
I recently had a chance to work with Tom on a Channel 5 documentary and took the opportunity to interview him about his career so far. Interview below.
Alongside Loretz Visuals, I produce content for my YouTube channel The Filmmakers Workshop. The aim of the channel is to offer fresh insight in to Filmmaking today. Since 2013 I have interviewed first time feature film directors, animators, BBC and Hollywood directors of photography as well taking time to create news, reviews and offer insight of my own for the filmmaking community. If you want to learn to be a filmmaker then subscribe to the channel to find out about some new filmmaking workshops set for Autumn 2019.
