Charlie Thorne is an award winning director and photographer. He is based near the devil's punchbowl in the south east of england.
From the intimate to the epic, Charlie is capable of weaving sensitive and often intensely personal stories across multiple continents and landscapes, living confidently on the border between documentary and narrative styles.
As a keen photographer, Charlie also brings a sharp visual edge to his directing style, transforming the stories he is telling with an aesthetic more akin to the world of cinema.
His passion for socially conscious causes has seen him working with Refugees in Rome, Mental Health charities in Glasgow and ethical tea farmers in China, as well as with global brands such as airbnb, LinkedIn, Cancer Research, Air China and most recently the National Trust for Scotland.
Charlie is currently developing his first feature documentary film.
