Writer, Director, Editor, Idiot


Who are you, what do you do?

I'm a real human person and also a Director, Editor and Writer. I live in Manchester and I'm left handed.

I made some silly music videos with my friends under the name Plastic Zoo for a few years and now I direct stuff under the name Luke Bather, which wasn't even my real name until I changed it by deed poll to hide my shady past.

I've been nominated for some awards and been in some festivals but the only thing I've ever won was a Mr. Men colouring book competition when I was 3. That was pretty great, though.

I've written about Music Videos for PromoNews, Weird History for Mental_Floss and Film & TV for Highsnobiety and I've done the odd bit of PR work here and there and I've even chaired a few panel discussions at the BFI and somehow ended up as a guest on Canadian Radio to talk about films. I've never even been to Canada. 

I've also previously written various bits of music & music video criticism for Word Is Cheap (RIP)Manchester Scenewipe (RIP) and The 405 but now nobody wants my opinion on anything and I can't say I blame them.

Yeah, yeah whatever. How do I get in touch with you?
