Whilst I have been creating my short films, I have always had a fascination with water, and a few months ago, I shot a piece for one of my films as a poster. I fell in love with the images the camera can capture of moving water, that the eye cannot see, so 'Emerger' was conceived. If you visit the Gallery tab on this page you can flip through the collection, and if you want a high resolution copy or copies, drop me an email  "subject 'Emerger' please", and would love to hear your thoughts on them

Meanwhile, I am on another project, which sadly, I can't talk about at the moment, but believe me it is very exciting. Meanwhile I have delayed 'Big Sky' for the time being, and I will post news as soon as I know more.

News from the last few months:

looking forward

The last year has been very testing, full of little jewels of achievements for my films. I guess the only way I can explain it is 'a memorable trip, that I don't think I will ever experience again', however, the goals that I reached with them, are reachable, and I always think to myself,  'if I had a reasonable budget behind the next project, then maybe I could get that little bit further?. 
So this last few months have been focused on developing the new film 'Big Sky', script is drafted, a great Director of Photography has been found, all the assets for the film are in place, and a cunning plan to get a short version of the film seen, has been hatched. The poster is looking pretty good too

So now it is a bit of a waiting game, the weather broke long enough for Tom Dobbie, my DOP and friend, to go out into the wilds, and test the camera and his knowledge, I wrote a small script, and we set out to film the piece in as high a resolution as possible, testing both equipment and software. The short film we created is called 'Second Wind', and can be watched by clicking on the poster below

So even although a lot has happened, it is still looking bleak, this recession is making it very hard to make a living, lack of funding and even the film funders are reluctant to invest, truly sad days, and I wish they were over,,,that's all for now,,, looking forward.
