Two award-winning shorts I wrote and directed; Escape and The Last, Danse à Lagrasse, a short documentary I co-directed with Conor Murphy about the Royal Ballet, plus the trailer to Poison Pen, an award-winning feature I co-directed, written by best-selling author, Eoin Colfer.

Poison Pen

Poison Pen is a feature film I co-directed as part of FilmBase/Staffordshire University Masters in Digital Feature Film Production. Written by best-selling author, Eoin Colfer it is a romantic-comedy about an author with writer’s block struggling in the world of gossip magazines.

Danse à Lagrasse

On July 17th 2010, 16 guest dancers from the Royal Ballet Covent Garden gave an open-air performance in a small village in south-west France, combining some of the world’s most popular and enduring ballet sequences with a selection of cutting-edge contemporary choreography.

The Last

The Last is a multi-award winning short film about a shoemaker who pledged his fiancée he would make her the most beautiful pair of shoes for their wedding. Now, some fifty years later he is finally fulfilling his promise. But his business has fallen away and his rent is in arrears.


Escape is a multi-award winning short film about a deaf girl who runs away from home. The story is told entirely without dialogue and features an experimental soundtrack used to provide an impression as to the sounds the girl would feel by way of vibrations.
