…a calm conjurer of clairsentience via camera, uniquely developing the subject as much as the image itself. Through his ‘mela-graphy’ [‘dark-drawing’] via ‘photo-graphy’ [‘light-drawing’], eliciting the seen from the unseen.

Seeing myself back through your heart-work, takes my breath away, as is as ever, such a gift.
WOW Andrew! Thank you for this! I’ve LOVED working with you, it’s been such a lovely, easy process and good fun too!

My heart EXPLODED and I fell off the sofa! If there is such a thing as Angels then you are mine!
I appreciated your sensitivity, creativity, expertise and consistent steadiness.
I also loved the surprises that your creativity brought and how you went the extra mile
Andrew made the process of video editing not only easy and fun, but also worked in a way that helped me to see the beauty of the footage with new eyes.
My good friend Julian kindly made a film about the work I have been doing with him. I am very touched and so pleased that I can help make a difference to his films.
This is to say how much I appreciated your sensitivity, creativity , expertise and consistent steadiness while working on this project
I also loved the surprises that your creativity brought and how you went the extra mile and also your openness to collaboration..checking out and exchanging ideas along the way was invaluable for me .
The ‘end product’ is something very important to me right now… in your hands treasures emerged from the raw material that can now be accessed and shared more readily .
With MANY thanks
Thank you! I am so grateful for the work you have done filming and editing my verbosity! You are so good at getting stuff out that sounds real and right. I didn’t know I could make that much sense. I had some pretty revealing moments in my own self awareness which has affected my behaviour at work too, as a result of seeing the films and other peoples reaction to them.

Andrew made the process of video editing not only easy and fun, but also worked in a way that helped me to see the beauty of the footage with new eyes. The process of seeing oneself on film can be vulnerable, and with Andrew, I felt an immediate trust, allowing him into very personal raw footage to shift and shape in a way that brought everything to life as I could not have imagined. Andrew was lovely to work with and responded willingly to each request I had, and I could tell he gave my project not only his time but his heart. I’m so grateful to have found him!

Andrew is an artist. He has a way of capturing the essence of his subject – whatever it is. When he works with individuals, it is as if he has opened a window on their soul.
It was because of this depth and sensitivity that I asked him, years ago, to co-create a video to portray the experience of dancing the 5 Rhythms (a practice which I teach). 5 Rhythms Dance is so utterly experiential, that it defies description by word – but Andrew’s film caught it. To this day it is still the best representation of the practice – which I so deeply love – that I have ever seen.
Hi Andrew – this is Emma (with Jon),
We just wanted to convey our thanks and admiration at a superb job on the film! We really loved it and I felt very moved! Jon had felt some anxiety prior to watching it because he is acutely aware of his propensity to trail off and waffle on. That morning was particularly bad as we were so sleep deprived. But you have somehow managed to present him as really coherent and lucid! I do jest – he is all of those things but really, well done on the editing. You’re an asset to BIM and I really hope we get to see you again soon.
My heart EXPLODED!!! And I fell off the sofa!!!! Think … any cartoon or perhaps the three stooges!!!
I FELL OFF THE SOFA!!
If there is such a thing as Angels then you are mine!!!!
I couldn’t believe my eyes!!!!
I burst into tears and wanted to run to your place and hug the life out of you!!!
If there was ever such a thing as perfect timing, I think we have just experienced it!!!
“THANK YOU ANDREW”
This is possibly the most wonderful gift I’ve ever received.
I have just looked at these and am really impressed. They cover so much alongside raising the emotional impact as well.
I am so pleased to see our carers being involved in doing this. They certainly brought a lump to my throat as well as a smile.
Thank you very much

I thoroughly enjoyed our time on Monday, a time for both personal and professional reflection. Thank you for your kind questions which allowed me to dig deeper.
Today was probably one of the most important days in our business in the last decade – to have clients prepared to take time out and commit to video is very humbling.
I’m looking forward to seeing the results!
Thank you SO MUCH.
I’ve just watched them all and they look totally amazing. Your professional pixie-dust has taken them to another level. The difference a professional makes!
They look beautiful. I’m so pleased….
Thank you so much for helping me to produce this. It’s very meaningful to me.
I feed indebted to you for your guidance on Skype and the time you invested trying to fix the audio interview track I sent. I am quite certain I would not have been able to post the video to share with the group as I did without your help…
We are all of us privileged to be able to tap the combination of your technical expertise and aesthetic sensibility in the area of film-making. Thank you for going the extra distance for us!
Wow that is such a rich review. So deep and comprehensive. I am so grateful. I wonder if you should be running some film making classes by reviewing some films with groups. You have such an eye and feel for it, plus the technical knowledge to go with it….
Thanks so much,
