How did you get started on YouTube?
Started making films when I was twelve, so when YouTube came along, I got my first channel back in 2007 as it was the perfect way to show the whole world how awful they were.

Which other creators inspire you the most?
I’ve always been a big fan of TomSka’s shorts and sketches as he started creating content not too long before I did so dominated the UK with comedy and violence.

Where do you see the channel in a year’s time?
I hope to get a couple more short films produced as well as starting a more regular sketch/mini-shorts/vlogs as I take on the US of A in a travelling adventure, armed with a camera.

Do you have any equipment to recommend?
A reliable heart filled with passion, a decent brain filled with creativity, a funny bone filled with gags and camera is handy too. (We currently shoot on the Black Magic Cinema Camera)

Anything else we should know?
I once made this silly lil film about a goat for fun and then some crazy Amercian fans of the film paid for me to travel to California to screen it and stay with them. I thought I was going to get killed. But I didn’t.
