Rich Toulmin

Rich Toulmin

Assistant Director

Since first picking up a camera I have been on a long road of experimenting and trying new forms of media. Initially falling in love with photography and through some progression, started to do art installations that required video. This has led to making films and discovering that my creativity could be applied in multiple ways. Now a few years into this creative journey and I'm working as a Manchester-based Director/DOP/AD and have been trained as a lighting technician too!

Film is the creative outlet that my mind craves, through failure, I grasp the opportunity to learn something new and reflect on everything done. Though my experience is low, my drive is high and I take great care in listening and learning from anything or anyone I experience along the way!
