I AM – my latest film
I AM challenges our preconceptions of diversity. It features four young performers – Andrew, Sandra, Steve and Awa – who prove one thing. We are all able to go beyond where others think we can. We all are. You are. I am.

A massive thank you to everyone who has helped make this project happen over the summer of 2019, Moira Lambert and Sir Richard Stilgoe and all the staff at the Orpheus Centre in particular. Thank you to the real stars of the film, their parents and carers, their supporters and friends, some of whom also appear in the film.
Many thanks to the staff and volunteers at all the venues we filmed in – without your generosity none of this would be possible.
