Vernon Sewell began his career in 1929 as a camera assistant at Nettlefold Studios before gaining experience as a camera operator, sound recordist, art director and editor. He also became adept in the use of special effects, and these featured prominently in his directorial debut, The Medium (1934), written by Michael Powell. He directed several short films in the 1930s and in 1943 he achieved some prominence with the wartime drama The Silver Fleet, produced by Archers. Despite other successes in the 1940s, he worked in B-feature production, particularly horror films, for much of the 1950s and 1960s.
