I joined Fulwell 73 up in the North-East of England to help make the Sunderland ‘Til I Die documentary series, it a fascinating experience. I Produced and Directed on the first three episodes, shooting on Sony F5 and FS7 in the football crazed city. I researched and uncovered lots of interesting characters along the way and gave what I felt was a fitting tribute to the unique support this team has in the area. Spending many days at the training ground as well as around the city, I worked with the players and staff to capture their connection they have with Sunderland. All 8 episodes can be streamed on Netflix.

Tough Mudder | SKY SPORTS
In this 6-part TV series I series-directed for Sky Sports, six British Olympians took on the obstacle courses of Tough Mudder in aid of charity.
The series took me all over the UK, Austria and USA, to get a personal insight into the athletes training techniques and how they prepared for the daunting prospect of 8 hours on a muddy assault course.

I have produced and directed a few features for Chelsea TV but this is one of my favourites; its an insight into the Chelsea captain's daily life. I pulled in some favours and got some exclusive interviews with the likes of Ashley Cole and Eden Hazard to create this unique piece.
Azpilicueta A Day In The Life
Leon McKenzie seemed to have the world at his feet, and as a Norwich City fan I certainly thought so. As a Premier League footballer he was scoring goals against Manchester United but on the inside he was going through hell. This is a closer look into why he reached rock bottom, and ended up literally fighting back. I got to spend a day in the company of Leon in South London and it was truly inspirational.
How Leon McKenzie Tackled Suicide
Eli Mengem returned home to Sydney for an A-League special of Derby Days between Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers. We looked into both club's history, spoke to their players, met their fans and most importantly experienced their derby. It was a pretty good challenge to produce a film in Asia, time difference definitely isn’t on your side for pre-production but we managed to pull it off. I’ve since been back to make a film about their 2006 World Cup success and also made a New Zealand based documentary.
