Guy Rowland
Writer / Director / Producer

Having written spec scripts for many years, Sam Jackson’s Secret Video Diary was Guy’s first feature. He also directed the accompanying Beyond Fiction.

In addition to script writing, directing and producing, Guy is also a TV composer, sound supervisor and dubbing mixer, video editor and, most impressively of all, “the bloke who has had to do the accounts”.

Michael Sanders
Director of Photography

Michael’s many documentary credits include Everyman, Real Lives, Wife Swap, Brat Camp and the Tonight programme.  Michael also shoots numerous commercials and entertainment shows.

Michael is also an editor, working on productions from all the major UK broadcasters and those across Europe.

BBC presenters Richard McCourt and Dominic Wood (Dick and Dom) cameo in the film.

Deborah Garrett and
Chris Healey

Between them, Debbie and Chris did the combined jobs of an entire film crew.  As a non-exhaustive list, Debbie played the interviewer, looked after script editing and additional material, production design, script supervision, costume and make up, while Chris also heavily worked on the script and wrote additional material, was sound recordist and composed the score. Both still talk to Guy to this day, but frankly it’s often tense.
