    About me

    I am a writer, director, editor and sound designer. I want to make films which will leap off the screen and jump inside the audience until they feel as if they're possessed. I love sound. I love the way sound can seep into you like a dream you don't realise you're in, until it's too late.

    Additional Information

    My second short film, Music Box, shot entirely on location in Italy, inside a government building in Naples, has won numerous awards and was Semi-Finalisted for the Academy Award Qualifying festival Flickers, Rhode Island.

    Music Box was shot on RED with Zeiss by cinematographer Francesco Morra A.I.C, who was recently selected for Zeiss's Talking Cinematography series. I financed, wrote, directed, edited and designed the sound for this £23,000 short.

    Production involved liaising with the Italian government in Naples, hiring all cast and crew, organising flights, accommodation and catering and, naturally, the shooting schedule.

    The film, shot in 8K, is a surrealist psychological drama and will be released this February via Digital Cinema Crew. The link is:
