Tragedy looms and passions reach boiling point as this volatile last meeting plays out.

Short film - Megan

Back in February last year, I finally shot a new fiction short film project: Megan (working title). Shot in a day, on a very cold, wet and dark day, it was a great experience and I'm pleased with how the edit is shaping up.

Two very nice, long days (and a bit of a night) shooting 3x 30sec ads The car's the star! Well actually, the kids are..

Purina - commercial shoot

TV ad shoot - Radio Times

Shell - commercial shoot

A one day shoot for 3x 20sec commercials. Child actors, members of the public, no sunlight = a very long day. But we got good stuff!

Top Gear test track - promo video shoot

Spent a day shooting at the iconic Top Gear test track last month, directing this promo. There were lots of electric vehicles being showcased on the day, the only problem with electric racing cars is that you cant hear them coming. This is especially a problem when you're stood in the middle of Hammerhead corner looking the wrong way! Racing drivers don't want to slow down for film crews.. who can blame them.
