MA work

All of my films feature myself in some way. In Rabbit Punch I have sought to capture the growing pains of a 14-year-old Norfolk boy.

I enjoy unconventional narratives in my work: I don't like neat closures, but I do like recalling various non-events from personal experience. I feel drawing suits these anecdotes perfectly, as it communicates honestly, making no attempt to conceal its imperfections.

I look forward to directing projects - both commercial and self-initiated.
