Director and automotive filmmaker, Al has become a highly sought after name in anything with four wheels on camera. Specialising in beautiful high-speed action and creative studio based shoots, he has been involved in some of the highest viewed automotive media in the world. His hands-on approach sees him in the director's chair, operating cameras and driving the edit suite meaning he can put all the ideas down the way they were meant to be. Or not, he's pretty relaxed about it.
Nearly an RAF pilot, but a typo on the system meant he was 22 days too old to join (after going through the entire selection process) - so the next obvious move was to become a freelance filmmaker. Having studied sound engineering at university that also lead to a rekindled love of audio and sound design, which to this day remains a key element to any of his projects.
Al is also a real petrolhead and handy driver in his own right. With well over 1,400 laps of the Nurburgring under his belt, endurance racing and grass-roots drifting, he's learned what cars can do so he can put his money where his mouth is. This all cumulates in a keen eye for the details to get the action on screen looking and sound right. The nerd factor, if you will.
Al also heads up a small production house for automotive film - Outrun Films - which can be called upon separately or not depending on the project requirements. Yes, it is named after the video game.
