Films

Here is a selection of my short films. Not all of them are my most recent, but they’re some of my favourites.

I wrote the script for ‘Emilie and New York City’ in five minutes while riding the M train heading out of Manhattan, and it’s my favourite of all the things I’ve made. What also excites me about these films is how they’re a chance to see TV actors in a different light. We made ‘Sally the Life Coach’ a few months after Natalie Gumede’s two year stint on ‘Coronation Street’, and it’s a completely different role for her. Likewise, it’s fascinating to see Alexandra Turshen a couple of years before her role in ‘Red Oaks’ – again playing a completely different role.

I hope you like these films, I’m really proud of them.
