Luke Downing

Writer/Filmmaker

Sheffield, United Kingdom
After graduating with a 1st Class Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film & Television Production, I went on to write and direct my first film, 'Your Star'.

Since then, I have worked with and produced a wide array of films for many clients, from local theatre companies and universities, to global banks and organisations. My work has also
been featured in The Guardian.

I am also currently directing a documentary pilot on motor racing and am in pre-production on my next short drama. I am always looking for exciting new projects to work on and like-minded people to work with, so please feel free to contact me.
