Film-maker

Film & video only come alive when being seen by an audience (even if only of one) and the web provides a unique opportunity to get work 'out there' to new viewers.

So the intention is to make available material from his personal archive of previously unseen material.

To achieve this, short excerpts of John's films will be hosted on the site and providing enough interest is generated then the full and hopefully remastered films will be available for purchase on DVD or as downloads.
