producer/director (self shooting), editor
A little about me & innerlight films international...
I'm a freelance Producer/Director (self shooting) with over 10 years industry experience. Having worked my way up from being a runner, I can well remember doing the late night kebab-run through East London for a starving film crew (runners eat last by the way), i moved on to production coordinating and then assistant producer and producer/director (self shooting). I've worked extensively in all areas of production and on various projects in documentary film making, reportage, fiction feature films, publicity and animation. Projects have included a number of productions for the BBC, the ITV and TNT Networks, and Paramount Studios USA.
Innerlight films is by definition, an extention of this (rather than plain old phillip rashleigh this! or that!) and a point of contact for the audio-visual, film and television services i provide as a freelancer. It's also an identity and label for projects such as 'Binfield' (2005) and 'The Dispute' (2008) which have been developed, shot, edited and produced in-house as it were but which remain nevertheless the result of a collaborative effort.
'La Dispute' or 'The Dispute' was shot in and around Angers, Nantes and the Island of Noirmoutier in France, had zero budget and was produced largely on the fly with the help of an eager team of French fine art students, a sack of Mars bars and Marlboro cigarettes and just enough pocket money to keep 2 cars on the road during filming; it was after all, a road movie!
Officially set-up in 2009, the innerlight label grew out of earlier productions like 'Binfield' and other projects such as 'Eden's Garden' and 'Lumux' that don't yet appear on these pages. The idea was and still is, to create engaging and entertaining material that has something to say about the times we're living in. Not to intellectualize them but to offer creative perspectives, windows; employing the vast variety of formats and media that are open to us.
Innerlight is also responsible for setting-up and kicking-off an annual short film event 'Courts à Encadrer', loosely translated 'Shorts to be Framed' which arguably gave due attention to regional film makers bruising with talent, who hadn't been fortunate enough to follow more traditional routes...Please click on the respective page tabs to learn more.I hope you enjoy your visit...
