If any single photograph sums up who I am and what I do, it is this one.

It's not actually a photo.

It's a screen-grab of me checking the camera set-up for a thing I directed of Ridley Scott talking.

That's Ridley Scott! Actual Ridley bloody Scott! Right there.

Anyway, it works as a visual representation of what I do because in the foreground you have a significant filmy person and in the background you have me clearly thinking too much about it all.

I make films about films. And I write books about films. And I interview people about films.

If you like films, there's a good chance you'll like the stuff I do.
