WHY SHOULD YOU LISTEN TO HIM…? Because he’s done it all!   Learning many crafts to become a craftsman, Charles is now an award winning director in his own right.

The BBC and LWT.

Charles Harris has come to writing and directing features after a varied early career which ranged from freelance photography and Aikido to published short story writer, twice short-listed for awards.

Starting in the film industry as a projectionist in a dubbing theatre, where he learned about film-making by watching the very end of the process, he moved to TV as a cutting-room assistant before becoming an editor for BBC and LWT and then finally director of TV documentaries and video.

The time he spent as a photographer early in his career can be seen in his strongly visual style and his work has won international prizes.

This led to his first feature as director, PARADISE GROVE, a darkly comic coming-of-age story starring Ron Moody and Rula Lenska, which won awards including Best New Director in Palm Springs.
