Liam was born in the old mill town of Blackburn in the North of England. After working many different jobs, from labouring to working in the NHS, the desire to tell and share stories came to the fore and he began making films. Initially this was in documentaries, but a focus on narrative has translated into other forms. His films investigate the universal issues of alienation, isolation, the need for connection and how it is often found through a shared passion. As a British Writer / Director from a working class background his personal interest in the forgotten people on the fringes of mainstream society is at the heart of his work.
His documentary 'The Last Storm' was long-listed for the Oscars in 2020, had it's World Première at Tribeca Film Festival, won the Jury Prize at Hot Springs Documentary Festival, Arkansas. His other films have had the honour of winning awards at a number of festivals, including 'Best documentary' at Berlin, Barcelona, New York and Leeds International film festivals. They have screened at over 200 film festivals around the globe, including Tribeca, Sheffield Docfest, DOC NYC, London Short Film Festival and many more. They have also garnered 8 Vimeo Staff Picks and been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, The Atlantic, and Short of the Week.
In 2019 I also had the honour of being the President of the International Feature documentary Jury at the 2019 Sofia International Film Festival.
