Darren Maxwell - Film Maker

Darren has been interested in film making from a very young age which stemmed from his love of science fiction movies. It was because of this he became involved in a number of amateur film and stage productions throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

Yet despite Darren's keen interest in film making, it wasn't until the year 2000 when he finally had the opportunity to make his first short film which was shot mostly in one night using a borrowed camera. And so with the embryonic seed now planted, he quickly became involved in various other productions before being asked by other people to make their films as well.

As a result of this sudden surge of activity, by the time 2004 came around Darren was ready to step up into the more serious side of film making by utilising professional actors, professional quality equipment and increased budgets.

Darren finished his last short film in 2012 thereby ending an impressive average of one completed short film every year from 2001. He then had plans to make his first feature film, yet despite having written the screenplay Darren decided not to pursue the venture due to a lack of funding and resources.

Throughout this highly productive 12 year period, Darren amassed an impressive CV relating to independent film production work which still continues to grow - see here

From 2013 to 2017 Darren continued working on a number of productions which were mostly corporate videos for his workplace. Then in 2018 he turned professional using the new company name of LCA Productions, however, the Covid-19 crisis of 2020 crippled his business which in turn brought LCA Productions to a close.

From May 2020 Darren returned to his roots by making some new lighthearted 'special' videos which were designed to keep his film making skills active during the Covid lockdown, his aim being to seek out new film and video production opportunities once the crisis had passed.

As a film maker, Darren is completely self taught having never been to film school and having no formal training in the media. His film work is a combination of imagination, enthusiasm, knowing how he wants something to look and being able to adhere to rigid shooting schedules, all of which are important qualities when working on a production.
