What piece of work inspired you to get into a career at The Mill & why?
Ah, this is easy, Bif ‘Raymond’, I was blown away by the fact that The Mill had chosen to invest in creating a short film. It was a competitive time in Soho and I’m confident there would have been risks involved in the decision. However, The Mill recognized the value in investing in their creative talent and chose to showcase it. I have seen that value repeated many times as the company continues to be willing to invest and to take risks in the pursuit of creative exploration and excellence.
What will be the most defining change of the next ten years?
The industry is so quick to focus on what will change but I believe it’s sometimes more important to focus on what will remain. Technology is developing at an exponential rate, but as tools and platforms develop and change, the heart of what we do will remain. A good idea, executed well by a collaborative and talented team is necessary to create anything of value. Our modern lives are saturated by moving image, so the focus must remain on good visual storytelling and the quality of the craft.
