Directors UK is the professional association of British film and television directors working with the moving image in the UK, with almost 6,000 members.
  • We represent directors and directing to Government in the UK and in Europe, to broadcasters, to regulators, to other industry bodies and to the media. 
  • We provide valuable services and benefits to our members and ensure they are involved in the profession and as a community.
  • Directors UK unites directors, creates opportunities, and works to support and strengthen every member.
  • Central to our purpose is the encouragement, protection and development of our members.
  • While directors work alone, it is our role to bring members together. 
  • Directors UK One of You - Many of Us
  • I play a leading role on the board of Directors UK where I’m committed to promoting the work of all directors and passionate about helping train the next generation.
  • Directors UK was launched in June 2008 as the single voice of British film and television directors. It is now both a collecting society and campaigning body with over 6,000 members. DUK is a non-profit-making organisation governed by an elected Board of Directors drawn from its membership and in October 2013 I was invited to join the Board to help give a voice to multi-camera and entertainment directors.
  • In February 2015 I was elected to serve as one of the three Vice-Chairs. I sit on the distribution and audit committees which are responsible for ensuring compliance and best practice in the financial operations of the company, particularly those connected with the distribution of members’ funds. I have been part of the negotiating team involved in the recent round of UK Rights Negotiations with broadcasters and producers over how much money we receive annually to distribute to members as royalties and residuals.
  • In June 2015 I was re-elected to the board to serve for another two-year term as Chair of the Multi-Camera & Entertainment Directors Committee. I am actively involved in campaigning for better pay for directors and also establishing a gold-standard multi-camera directors training scheme.
