I’m at Berlinale Talents


A little update to say I’ve been selected for the Berlinale Talent Campus, where I’ll be meeting and learning from a bunch of up-and-coming people from all over the world. Sounds fun!

I’m on the plane as I post this, so perhaps I’ll see you there (whoever you are)?

Proud and excited to announce that my new short film THE PREVAILING WINDS will premiere at the BFI London Film Festival this October!

This is the first time I’ve made a short film working from someone else’s script (the talented Lawrie Doran) so I’m excited to see what people think of this new approach for me.

And such a great festival to premiere at!

It will play on the 13th and 14th October as part of the London Calling programme.

“Best Short Film” Award Winner

Very pleased and surprised that Bradley Manning Had Secrets has won the award for Best Short Film at MIX Copenhagen 2012!

Annoyed I couldn’t be there to pick it up in person, but I’m told my statuette is in the post!

The judges’ statement was very kind, describing it as

an exciting example of contemporary filmmaking


palpable emotion and lingering questions.

You can read the whole thing here, if you really want.

Bradley at a Festival near you

Bradley Manning Had Secrets will be appearing in a few festivals in the next few months.

Check it out at the BFI London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival at their Radical Constitution programme of experimental shorts. March 26th!

Meanwhile – in Holland – the film’s already had a very successful screening at the Rotterdam International Film Festival last month. Plus, it’s in competition at the Holland Animation Film Festival, also playing at the end of March.

I’ll try and keep you updated with festival selections as they come in. Very nice seeing it on the big screen – big pixels!

Internet Story this Easter

Internet Story is playing in the East End Film Festival on April 30th as part of the East End Tales 2 Programme. Nice!

Plus, on May 2nd it will feature in Rich Pickings as part of a programme about “game structures in art and everyday life”. Double nice!

Then, between April 29th and May 5th, the film will be playing three times in the Brussels Short Film Festival as part of their International Competition. OK enough already!

Internet Story at more Festivals

Internet Story will be playing at the London Short Film Festival on January 13th, over at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith.

Really happy to be in this festival as well – it’s part of the interesting-sounding God’s Lonely Men programme. Should be good!

Book tickets here, if you’d like to.

Also forgot to mention: the film’s gone international! Got some nice responses from the interFilm Berlin Film Festival.

Expect more news on my next project in the New Year. Merry Christmash!

Internet Story at BFI onedotzero Festival!

Have you heard the Good News? Internet Story will be playing at the BFI onedotzero Festival this November, down on London’s Southbank.

It’s an uber-cool digital/innovation event that I’m really proud to be a part of. The film is part of the New British Talent 10 programme which will be playing at the following times:

Wed 10 Nov | 16:00 | NFT3
Sat 13 Nov | 13:30 | NFT1
Sun 14 Nov | 20:30 | Studio

I’ll most likely be attending the Sunday showing but might go to the Saturday one as well. There’s loads of other cool things going on (see the programme) so it’d be great to see you there!

Tickets go on sale from the BFI for the general public on Oct 12th (or Oct 5th for sneaky BFI members).

September 11th, 2009


Several months ago, I was commissioned to produce an animated promo for the charity Breast Cancer UK. The trustees have been really happy with it and are currently touring it around various political conferences. It’s fun and informative, so you might like to check it out above! Full details here.

In other news, my thanks to those who attended probably the last public screening of Arcadia at the Portobello Film Festival. Thanks for laughing/semi-gasping at the right bits! There were also loads of neat films in the programme, so it was a great fest to be part of.
