THE TEAM

Andrew’s varied media career includes photography (Christie’s Auction House, The Observer, The Times, local press), news journalism (ITV local + news websites) and film and video. He’s also had stints as a theatre reviewer, interviewer and script writer.

His interviewing included such people as Iain Banks, David Prowse, Dame Vera Lynn, Richard Stanley, Shinya Tsukamoto, William Hootkins, Christopher Biggins, Katherine Ryan, Lee Hurst, Nichola McAuliffe, Kim Newman and many others in the media. It provided a rich social background and understanding of both creatives and production.

Visually, he cut his teeth on Super-8, then 16mm (training at Monty Python’s Panico Pictures and Arri Media) and onto digital video where he continues shooting and editing.

As co-founder of Empathic Productions, he enjoys the challenges, excitement and meeting all the varied people that a media career brings. His principal responsibilities are creative writing, organising location shoots for clients, directing, editing, and video post-production services.
