Short films

As a filmmaker I’ve worked on a wide range of projects over the years, in various capacities. I specialise in visual effects but am also an experienced editor, writer and director.

Some of the projects I’ve worked on can be watched below, with the most recent at the top:

Confrontation at dawn

VFX

Here’s a quick short from director Christopher Puttock, for which I did some VFX work.

Extraction Protocol

Director & VFX

I directed this promotional action short for FXhome to promote the new HitFilm product. Made on a very tiny budget, it was a very complex project. I also created all the visual effects and co-edited.

TEMPORARY STATUS

Cinematographer (also screenplay and edit assist)

Our second attempt at creating a film in just 48 hours, again for the Sci-Fi-London 48 Hour Film Challenge. We improved in just about every area from 2010′s Orphan Factory:

ARMS RACE

Cinematographer, editor & VFX

I’ve worked on Arms Race from script development onwards and was primarily responsible for cinematography, editing and VFX. It’s our most successful film to date, having been seen by a pleasant 11,000+ in just a couple of months.
