David was awarded a skillset bursary to study at the London Film School, graduating with the short film SATURDAY. The film continues to screen on the festival circuit, recently winning the Student Award at the 20th International Film Festival Etiuda&Anima and is currently touring cinemas in Poland.

During his time at LFS David was very fortunate that Ken Loach agreed to be his mentor - the only time he has ever undertaken this role. He was with Ken during the casting process and the shoot of THE ANGEL'S SHARE; working as 2nd Unit Director on the 'Making of' - DISTILLING THE ANGEL'S SHARE.
