Convincing Richard to get on board with Alarm Clock Kid was a godsend: he mentored me and provided me with studio space, lighting, rigs, cameras, lenses, transport, contacts; the works. And after all that, he gave me the freedom to direct my film how I wanted it made: with all his experience, Richard stood back and gave me that space to explore and learn and make mistakes; and I am very grateful. Alarm Clock Kid never would have got made without his encouragement. That’s what I like most about Richard, he isn’t precious about what he knows; he sees guys like me who are just starting out and he wants to support you to become a better artist. There aren’t very many people like that around. It’s inspiring and I will always remember his generosity and the fun we’ve had shooting.
