I started my professional life with Terence Conran as he was rolling out his Habitat chain in the 1970’s and 80’s.
I’ve been with Farley for the last 30 years – most of my working life. My speciality is feature film and TV production, particularly studio-based, working with such Art Directors as the late Stephenie McMillan on her unique involvement with Harry Potter, Sarah Greenwood on Anna Karenina, Atonement and many others. For the last five seasons I have worked with Rob Cameron’s team on the epic Game of Thrones franchise.
Hidden talents? I have none – what you see is what you get! And nothing is too crazy to ask for in our world of prop hire – just ask, and you will get!!
My favourite prop is this small picture from Spillers – an outdoor Italian scene painted with detail and perspective so that it looks like a stage set.
For me, Powell and Pressburger’s Black Narcissus from the 1950’s is a knockout – the Himalayas convincingly re-created at Pinewood.
