Primarily a film producer, Andy runs SUMS Film & Media, which he set up in 2011 with Bob Benton (ex-Chairman of Handmade, Board Member of Ingenious). SUMS focuses on narrative digital films for new platforms, traditional theatrical releases, and the integration of the two.
Film projects on the SUMS slate include completed traditional feature Lilting, directed by Hong Khaou and starring Ben Whishaw and Cheng Pei Pei (Crouching Tiger), to be distributed in the UK by Artificial Eye; Phone Book, a multi-stranded narrative film series designed for tablets and smart phones/TVs created by Steven Hall (The Raw Shark Texts, Crysis 3), written by Hall and Mark O’Rowe (Broken, Boy A), backed by the BFI, with EP’s Malcolm Reeve (Life in a Day) and double Oscar-winning editor Angus Wall (Dragon Tattoo, Social Network, Fight Club); and traditional feature The Winter Ghosts, based on the novel by Kate Mosse, being adapted by Rory Kinnear (We Need To Talk About Kevin).
Prior to SUMS, Andy was at Ruby Films where he worked as assistant to Alison Owen and/or development executive across films/TV such as The Other Boleyn Girl; The Men Who Stare at Goats; Tamara Drewe; Jane Eyre; Case Histories; Brick Lane; Small Island; Chatroom; Five Minutes of Heaven and the multi-Emmy winning Temple Grandin.
In 2009 Andy produced Venus & The Sun, a film released as an app for iPhones/iPads which, based on the notoriety of the star, continues to sell well worldwide.
