GBE Founding Company Director & Producer
Dave always had a passion for movie making, and loved finding out where films were being made so he could "hang about" on the set. He's appeared in many films including "The Whistleblower" and "Champions", mainly as an extra. In 2006, he co-produced/directed a short film, "Waters End", which was very well received. In 2010 he heard the Louisa lifeboat story, which started 5 years of research. After raising funds, a screenplay was commissioned and the feature animation "Louisa: An Amazing Adventure" commenced production. It was released in 2021.
