Life In a Day: The Minicab Office

Life In A Day – The Minicab Office is a heart-warming, funny and surprising documentary about city life seen through the eyes of taxi drivers.

Courtesy Taxis is one of the biggest taxi firms in Norwich, with its 57 drivers and staff manning the office 24 hours a day, there is never a dull moment.

At the weekends the taxi office’s waiting room is usually full of clubbers looking for somewhere warm to eat their late night kebab. During the week Courtesy Taxis hosts all sorts of different characters, from the beloved old couple to the stern businessman, there is always a story to be told.

A ‘mini-rig’ of fixed cameras in both the mini-cab office and within the taxis themselves gives never seen before access to customers, following the story and journey seamlessly.

Production Company: Mentorn Media

Alex Brooker: My Perfect Body

I’m delighted to be composing the soundtrack to the Channel 4’s and Mentorn Media documentary Alex Brooker: My Perfect Body.

Ever since he was a teenager,  Alex Brooker (one third of the Paralympic runaway hit show The Last Leg) has struggled with his weight. Now he has decided that it is time he did something about it. He has three months before he embarks on a beach holiday to Croatia with his gang of super sporty mates and he is determined to get in shape before he gets his kit off in front of the gang.

Self shot by the director Eddie Hutton-Mills, the film will give a very intimate, bright and funny look into the world of male weight loss and body image.

To keep up to date with his progress, Alex has set up a blog. You can also follow him on Twitter here.
