"In 2011 I was the Editor on the ground-breaking documentary feature Life in a Day, the first user-generated documentary of its kind, produced by Ridley Scott in association with YouTube. With Oscar winning director Kevin MacDonald it was my responsibility to supervise a large international team to sift through the footage and help craft an unique story from the very best footage.Harvey Glen submitted a beguiling story about an expat gardener working away from his family in Dubai. It immediately caught my and Kevin Macdonald’s eye. His footage was exquisitely shot, the subject had genuine contemporary relevance and went on to form a significant section of the final film’"
