Why ‘Purple Door’ ?

The house of my adolescence had a purple front door.  It stood alone in a street of ordinary coloured front doors.  The name of my production company comes from that old front door.  The door is no longer purple, but it is still there.

The stories I tell are fun and light hearted. Yet they all have something larger to say about human relationships. I’m interested in connections; missed or misunderstood, in memory, imagination and growing-up.  In the tiny, sometimes unremarkable, yet important moments that make up a life.

My passion for moving images stems from a childhood spent watching countless hours of MGM musicals. This led me to the belief that if only, people burst into spontaneous song and dance in real life, many of the world’s problems could be quickly solved.  Age has made me more realistic about the chances of this idea working, but I live in hope. I can’t sing or dance particularly well, so I tell stories. Which is just fine with me.
