In January 2017 Luke worked as 1st AC and Steadicam Op on the Short Film The Silent Child. At the 2018 Oscars, The Silent Child won 'best live action short' - a huge achievement for an indie-short, and a testament to the strength of the team who produced it.
Luke produced the short film Secret Station whilst at University - a visual journey through Aldwych, a disused station on a now defunct branch of the Piccadilly Line. The film has now had over 1.5 million hits on YouTube.
Luke is also a keen amateur astronomer. He's had his photos printed in the Sky at Night Magazine, as well as shown on the BBC Two programme Stargazing Live. In 2018 Luke was shortlisted for the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition - run in conjunction with Royal Museums Greenwich. His photo was published in that year's accompanying book.
In 2016, Luke ventured into the dark and mysterious world of 'sound', producing an hour-long Doctor Who fanfiction audio drama. Exhausted Supplies was received very well by the fans, and can be listened to for free on YouTube. More recently Luke wrote and produced a Doctor Who poem that featured Impressions of every incarnation of the Doctor. Ode to a Timelord is also free to listen to on YouTube.
