1ST DIRECTED SHORT FILM : POLLEN (2015)

‘Everyone asks questions. Few sacrifice everything for the answers.’

Two people trapped in an Orwellian world find a symbol of hope that the authorities will do anything to keep secret.

Based on the book ‘Pollen’ by A.D Lamb, I wanted to introduce and get the audience to ask questions about the tense world, themes and characters in this ‘proof of concept’ short film.

After reading the book, I quickly put together a script […]

MOUNT RUAPEHU : AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

A view of Mount Ruapehu from the top of Mount Ngauruhoe in Taupo, New Zealand.

The mountain climb itself took about 4 and a half hours.  It was so steep and with loose rocks making our feet sink into the mountain like quicksand, we were all climbing on our hands and knees near the summit, however, the views at the top were more than worth the effort.

TUMBLE TIME : AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

This image was taken near the end of my trip around New Zealand.

In the beginning of the trip we asked where the best place was to do a skydive.  The response was unanimous.  Wanaka on the South Island.  After 6 weeks of travelling around the North and South Island, it was time to take the plunge.

Due to weather conditions, and having to cram in a few activities, we ended up doing […]

DEATH DRIVE : INDIA

During my time living and working in Mumbai, India, I had the opportunity to explore the country.   I travelled through the various states and found that India was the craziest country I have ever visited.

The image above was taken at a country fair in Kerala, with the highlight being The Diamond Maruti Car Circus.

The spectators would climb to the top of this spherical Wall of Death and watch these […]

VFX BREAKDOWN : AVATAR (2009)

It was too late to include these Framestore breakdowns for Avatar in my 2010 showreel so I decided to stick together a bare-bones reel that shows the work that I did on the film.
