My debut short film, The Stars & The Stones, was an official selection of multiple Oscar accredited film festivals, including the Calgary International Film Festival and Raindance Film Festival to name just a few.
As a screenwriter, I have sold three feature film screenplays and numerous short film scripts to international production companies, and have also worked for a Los Angeles talent agency for a year as a Story Analyst.
I Directed Tobias Menzies in my multi-award winning film, The Velvet Abstract, an environmental short produced on six continents, and featuring visual effects talents from Star Wars, The Hunger Games, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avatar, Lost, Game of Thrones, The Martian, and many more. Scored by the world-renowned Composer Jean-Pascal Beintus (The Danish Girl, Argo, Harry Potter, The Imitation Game), the film was part of a recent BAFTA event where I was a Speaker on stage for a live Q&A. The film has already won 7 awards, including 6 for Best Film. More about the film and festival news can be found on the official website www.thevelvetabstract.com
My other current release is the short film drama, The Inuring, which is currently on the festival circuit. It recently screened at the Oscar qualifying Rhode Island Film Festival, and has picked up 5 awards so far including Best Director, Best Narrative Short Film, and Best in Show. More news of its festival success can be found on the official website: www.theinuring.com
These are the debut releases of my new production company Sunset Aperture where I am now busy on its third short film release.
I have been fortunate to work with some amazing talent during my career and I have received some lovely feedback.
An update to my reel is currently being developed and will feature clips from the following productions.
