Strange Weather continues it's festival run this September with screenings at the 35th Cambridge Film Festival and Raindance, where I'm delighted to annouce it has been nominated for the Best UK Short Film award.

We'll then be screening the film at Asthetica short Film Festival in November.

Thank you to everyone that helped make the film, and who have supported it along the way.

The Raindance awards ceremony is early October, wish us luck.


As we are now into our final week of post production on Strange Weather, I thought I'd share with you a little taste of things to come. It's been a wonderful expeirence and I've been lucky enough to have an incredibly talented and generous post production team, who have all gone way beyond the call of duty to bring this film to life. 

So for now, it's down tools and time to see what the world thinks of our work.



I'm very excited to announce that Strange Weather will complete postproduction at the end of this month. It's been a tough climb, but the summit is now in sight.

I'd like to thank the postproduction team - Once Were Farmers, Bent Ear, Absolute Post and Philosophy Audio - for all their hard work and support. The dedication and passion they've put into this film has been phenomenal.


Strange Weather has been put on hold for this year unfortunately due to scheduling conflicts. Whilst the project will be on the back burner it certainly won't be forgotten. We are aiming to pick up again next Spring with the hope of shooting early Summer. 


Thanks to everyone who has shown interest in the short and sent me CVs etc. We will be contcting people next year to pick up where we left off.

Strange Weather

My next short film 'Strange Weather' is going ahead at the end of August. The film tell the story of two lost souls who witness a rare phenomenon that fills a gap in their lives and somehow brings them together. It will star actress Maxine Peake and actor Lex Shrapnel in the lead roles (as well as some other familiar faces) and will be shot in rural East Anglia. The film will be the first production by my new production company which will launch at the time of the films completion.
