Richard’s first assignment in moving image archives was in 2002 when he wrote a development strategy for the Northern Ireland Digital Film Archive. Since then he has conducted moving image archive work for the East Anglian Film Archive, the Yorkshire Film Archive, the Northern Region Film & Television Archive, Screen East, Northwest Vision + Media, Screen West Midlands, the UK Film Council and the BFI.

In 2007, he led the team that wrote a Business Plan for the UK Strategy for Film Heritage. This document was adapted by the BFI and presented to the DCMS, resulting eventually in the £22.8m investment in screen heritage, the Screen Heritage UK (SHUK) programme.

After this, he advised the UK Film Council on a number of issues concerning the Revitalising the Regions (RtR) strand of SHUK. Richard was a member of the RtR Sub-Programme Board, which advised on the investment of the £3.7m RtR strand of the SHUK.

Richard led the team which created a toolkit to evaluate the impact of the UK Film Council’s Digital Film Archive Fund (DFAF). He assisted Screen Yorkshire and Northwest Vision + Media in preparing their RtR plans. He has conducted strategic planning work for the East Anglian Film Archive and for Yorkshire Film Archive. In addition, he has evaluated specific archive investment proposals for Screen East (RtR and DFAF), and for Screen West Midlands (DFAF).
