FILM 

I have written, co-written, produced and directed several short film projects.

Tea For Two is a short comedy starring John Challis (Only Fools And Horses) and Amanda Barrie (Carry on Cleo) for which I was writer and director.

 

The film was screened at various festivals, including the BAFTA-qualifying Aesthetica Film Festival, and won Best Screenplay

at the Winchester Short Film Festival. 

I Want To Make You Happy is a new comedy drama I have co-written with comedian Paul F. Taylor who also stars in the film, directed by

BAFTA-nominated comedy director Ben Mallaby.

Squall is a short drama I have written and directed,

now on the film festival circuit where so far it has been selected for the

High Peak Independent Film Festival & FirstGlance Film Festival Philadelphia. 

 The film stars Gary Beadle (Eastenders, Summer of Rockets), Jessica Chamberlain (Beneath The Trees, Quick Fix), Tom Butcher (The Bill, Doctors) and Corrinne Wicks (Emmerdale, Doctors).

Fellow Creatures is a short drama that I produced for The Shotley Collective, the newly formed production company founded by Jason Merrells, Jamie Glover and Jonathan Kerrigan. 

The film stars Shelley Conn and Jonathan Kerrigan, who also wrote the script and score, and is co-directed by Jason Merrells and Jamie Glover after a successful crowdfunding campaign on Greenlit.

I am also the director of the Exit 6 Film Festival, an annual short film event taking place across multiple venues in my hometown of Basingstoke.

The festival is listed on FilmFreeway's Top 100 Best Reviewed Festivals, which puts Exit 6 in the top 1.5% of the 9K+ events the portal facilitates worldwide.

 

In addition to the annual festival, Exit 6 publishes regular blog content covering every aspect of film production, aiming to inspire and educate independent filmmakers.
