About Fergus

My name is Fergus Worrall and I'm an aspiring filmmaker based in London, originally from Monmouth, South Wales. I've been interested in making films since I was a child, though it wasn't a conscious decision then. Growing up, me, my brother and friends would fill our time shooting short films, skate videos and Jackass-inspired stunts with a hi-8 camera that I bought with my hard earned £100 pocket money. We'd edit using a VHS player, layering music over and chopping clips. Fast-forward to my late teens, and I chose filmmaking as my path in college and consciously began my practice there. Outside of education, making skate videos continued still but at a much more professional standard. I bought my first SLR and DSLR, lenses, lights, mic's, rigs, filters, and thoroughly learnt the functions of a camera through analogue photography. I went on to study Film (BA) at Falmouth University. I learnt a great deal there, my mind was opened to a different kind of film language; foreign, classic, documentary, experimental. We learnt both the practical side to filmmaking and the theoretical. In my mind, both were equally valuable to my understanding of cinema. What I was exposed to there helped me broaden and understand my own taste. The most important project, in terms of advancing my craft, was my final year narrative short film, 'Philistine', which I wrote, directed, edited, and partly shot. It was a huge learning curve for me, being the first time I'd directed a film that I wrote, worked with a budget, worked with paid actors, acquired locations, shot on 16mm, and presented a film to an audience. I ended up graduating with a 1st, which I feel was representative of my hard work, though I'm also aware that the real-world industry of film is another ball game. After graduating in September of 2016, I worked at home for a year and saved to move to London. Since arriving, I've juggled part time work at a cinema and done various freelance/commercial/production jobs in which I've been camera operator, editor, director, and runner (feature film). Having recently left part time employment to fully pursue filmmaking as a sole means of income, I'm much more available.
