Film Synopsis: A man in a costume makes his way to a party in a wood,
where he finds himself strangely turned upon.


Training / education? I have a BA in Media, Photography and Video Production, but in the past I have also studied Film. Outside of education I write various shorts and paint.

Most looking forward to in your New Music Shorts film? All of it! But watching it when its finished, should be the best part.

What made you choose 'Farewell Farewell'? The way the song uses melody and noise. It has a brittle texture and the melody holds it together and with the song's theme, as soon as I heard it, gelled with my ideas.

What are you never on set without? A script (if applicable), storyboards and great people.

Best thing about being in the film industry? Realising your ideas.

Worst thing about being in the film industry? Hopefully I will never know.
