Simon Mooney / Behind the Scenes / by Simon Mooney

I left my job as art director in 1993 and set up a photo agency in Huddersfield. Over the years, we built and run The FA's official photo library, worked for Premier League clubs and produced advertising campaigns for brands like McDonald's, Coca-Cola and Sony. We shot one televison campaign for Playstation at what was then The McAlpine Stadium, casting young Town player Ben Sweet in the starring role.

Our speciality is behind the scenes, working with players and staff, like this film of Spurs preparing for the derby with Arsenal.

The England project was the longest running at just over five years and I photographed 67 games from the dressing rooms at two World Cups and a European Championship.

We have behind the scenes Premier League experience with Everton and Fulham, as well as Spurs.

A programme seller tipped us off to watch a boy called Rooney and we documented his rise from youth team to the world stage.

There's a fantastic opportunity here to make a film and tell the inside story of Town's return to English football's top flight, from the perspective of the the people who made it happen. My experience working with managers, players, staff and commercial departments fits perfectly with Ben Sweet's connection to the club and skill in writing for film.
