The Frozen Frog

Director, cameras and editor for the first ever Winter Frog Whitton.

The Frog Whitton is 96 miles of cycling and 6 miles of swimming through the beautiful and mountainous terrain of the Lake District. It had never been done in winter before, until December 2020 when, on a cold, rainy day, it finally was.

I recruited a team of 10 people to cover every aspect of the documentary from additional camera operators and photographers, to a musical director and recording musicians. My main roles were carrying out the pre-production planning, capturing the moving shots from the motorbike and canoe, and editing the documentary. It was a mammoth project; 17 hour non-stop shooting on the day and then 7 months of editing in my spare time around a full-time job.
