Documentary Filmmaking


Thanks for coming this far. I'm Emile an independent documentary filmmaker and a former Royal Marines Commando.

I’ve filmed and directed two feature documentaries “Robin Hood Complex - The Fight Against Islamic State”


“Robin Hood Complex Ukraine - Europe’s Forgotten War”

Two documentaries that look into what motivates volunteers to fight in other people’s wars.

Being totally self funded is hard. It's a struggle to make these documentaries without support. 

If you were to kindly donate, your money would be going towards expenses to film ie travel, flights, etc as well as equipment. I know times are hard for everyone, but a small amount helps massively in order to carry on making independent films.

Thanks for your support.
