DAD JOKE, David's debut series as director and co-writer, was adapted from his Film London-funded short of the same name, which premiered at the BFI London Film Festial. The series was picked up by Eleven (Sex Education, Red Rose), where it is currently in development, and the pilot script appeared on 2022's Brit List.

 

David’s debut feature WIN, a coming-of-age sports movie centred on the sport of Powerchair, is currently in development with the BFI through their Early Development Fund.

 

As a director David's shorts have screened at BFI London Film Festival, LSFF, Aesthetica and Sheffield Doc/Fest, and David was recently selected for Directors UK's 'Inspire' scheme. This year-long programme will see him shadow Alice Seabright (Sex Education, End-O) as she brings her debut original series 'Chloe' (BBC/Mam Tor Productions) to the screen, and will support the development of David's own debut original series 'Dad Joke.'

 

Working in both comedy and documentary, David tells stories which are hilarious and hard-hitting, ridiculous and raw.
