Director Statement

Based in the North West of England, Circa was the first short film I'd made simply to work with a great crew and because we wanted to make it happen. This was a project about the experience of making a film on a budget of £50. Turns out it was a fantastic experience and a huge learning curve. Hopefully this is just the start!
