Mark Hamilton

With a strong and varied background as a cinematographer I have gained invaluable experience which has helped me develop structure and creativity within my own story telling, and the confidence as an independent director.

In this role I’ve enjoyed making broadcast documentaries, music and advertising promos, and short narrative films. These include 'PRIMARY BURNS' which won a Royal Television Society Award for Best Non-Factual, and more recently, ‘AN ORDINARY MONDAY', which won Best Director at the Austria International Film Festival, as well as Best British Short Film at the London Independent Film Awards in 2017.

Other projects in both short and feature length form are In Development...
