Making a feature film is a massive undertaking. It requires months, even years of work by a group of dedicated people. It's also expensive, so by pre-purchasing a reward, you'll help to get it made. We have our cast, our crew, and our locations in place. Now all we need is to finalise the budget, and it's full-steam ahead!

We also need a picture of your cat.

Here's a short synopsis:

"Pop-Up" is a feature film about three people affected by one event. Their stories are told separately, but they interconnect in unexpected ways.

Story 1: An unemployed father finds a camera containing a single photo of a woman's face. Smitten, he tracks her down.

Story 2: A Romanian immigrant attempts to overcome her heartbreak by giving away 3D cards to everyone she knows, and some people she doesn't.

Story 3: A sleep-deprived theatre director seeks deadly revenge on a scathing critic.

Some Of My Previous Work

I've been mucking around with a video camera since I was 11, and made my first complete short film at age 14. During my high school and uni days, I was writer/director of around 90 minutes worth of shorts.

At age 25 I made my first feature as my honours thesis, "Spudmonkey", which I consider a great learning experience. It does has its moments, notably involving ninjas, so you can watch the entire film here:


Since making Spudmonkey, I've worked mainly in advertising, having amassed around 500 tv commercials as director. Here's one which gets a good reaction, but I can never understand why:


I recently co-directed, co-produced, co-edited and co-wrote a tv series (7 x 26min episodes), which I also shot, mixed and scored. It's just been acquired by TVF International for worldwide sales. Here's the trailer:
