Born in Blackburn, England, Liam’s background was as a documentary camera operator, where he worked with the likes of Shane Meadows at Warp Films. With a desire to tell stories, Liam’s path naturally led to directing, where his skills as a versatile filmmaker allowed him to create beautiful and intimate imagery across a variety of mediums. His cinematic style mixed with a tender realism and subtle humour translates into different genres, with story telling always at the heart.
Initially this was in documentaries, but a focus on narrative has been translated into music videos, short films and commercial work.
His films have won awards at a number of festivals, including best short documentary at Berlin, Leeds, Barcelona and New York short film festival. They have been screened at over 60 international film festivals, including Raindance, Sheffield Docfest, DOC NYC, Heartland, London Short Film Festival and many more.
