So we went to Cannes and had the pleasure of watching our film 'Social Networking Socially - Society Through Technology' on the big screen.

Jury Chair Jason Solomons (renowned film critic for The Observer) was there to introduce the films and host a Q&A with the filmmakers after.

'Wipout' my latest short film was made in a whirlwind of 7 days as an entry for the Aarhus Short Film Challenge. www.shortfilmchallenge.dk

 

Working with up and coming  BBC writer Daisy Martey, comedians Haiste and Lawrence, DOP Howard Mills, Production Designer Steve Blundell and composer Rich Keyworth, we wrote, shot, edited and scored a silent comedy in a week.

 

It was one of the most liberating and inspiring filmmaking experiences of my life and the film has come out amazingly well.

 

We won an Honourable Mention at the Aarhus Short Film Challenge Awards ceremony on 25th of October, and were in the Top Ten best films of the festival.
