Project Description


I am working on “The painted horizon” a documentary film about the lives and works of graffiti artists spanning the last 5 decades. Its an ambitious project that I believe will help define a somewhat unknown history to many people. I have travelled to 3 continents, slept in over 50 hotels, drank over 1000 cups of coffee and sank pretty much all I have into this film. Some think I am a little crazy but the more I have discovered the more I have truly been inspired by this project.

I’ll be uploading a short 5 minute preview of my documentary shortly – watch this space!

Where I am right now

I am currently in negotiation with a major broadcaster (C4) who is interested in the project. I really want to get this film out to as bigger audience as possible so I am looking to negotiate with other interested parties (Yet to be determined).

Skills and experience

I studied film at the NFTS and I have been involved in the production of a few short films but this is the first major project I have taken on myself.

The challenges

I have faced many challenges with this film and I am currently struggling with:

  • The promotional aspects (Due to lack of experience) particularly on the web?
  • Affording access to a top notch professional editing suite
  • Further research into some of the deeper historical aspects of the film


I am working with a few other people who are passionate about the subject matter but they are committed to full time jobs and utilising their time regularly is a challenge.
