I've made 41 films with a total length of 167 minutes.
|The Intruder||Who is the mysterious intruder??
This film contains a reference to something that anyone under 40 may not understand - I'll be interested to see what people think of it! The ending will make more sense if you google "All because the lady loves Milk Tray".
First experiment with new camera - you can tell I got some of the settings wrong!

|Paris||When I was writing this script I had a vision for how it would turn out, and it didn’t quite work in a few key points. It’s a valuable lesson in understanding what’s practically possible and writing to that, rather than imagining an ideal result and hoping it will work out. There’s a few shots I wish we’d recorded at the time but didn’t realise the need until I was editing.
This was my first attempt at editing a film, and the first time I’ve done any significant direction. There’s various points when I should have given better direction to the actors.

|Vox Pop 2||When I wrote the original Vox Pop I wrote too much for a 1 minute film, but we decided to film it anyway and make a second film from it. Again, we were using lavalier (clip on) microphones, but unfortunately a problem with the recording meant we had to use the sound recording from the camera, which is why there’s so much traffic noise.||1||25 January 2018||RFVM Actors|
|Vox Pop||This was written for a 1 minute film competition. It turned out to be around 1:07 so is speeded up to fit into the time.We were using lavalier (clip on) microphones, but unfortunately a problem with the recording meant we had to use the sound recording from the camera, which is why there’s so much traffic noise.||1||25 January 2018||RFVM Actors|
|Hope||Written for a 1 minute film competition which had to include a diamond in the story. Filmed by myself on a GoPro, very minimalist.||1||18 January 2018||Solo|
|…the making of…||Fun film to make. I was not keeping proper notice of the takes we took, which meant for one scene the only take we had was not a good one, and had to patch it up. Worked out okay though.||1||18 January 2018||Solo|
|Mermaid||Written as an exercise in making use of chromakey (green screen) technology to put the fish behind the actors.
Unfortuately, the footage for the film has been lost (but not a great loss!)
