Experiencing Interruptions?


The Sandgoose is a life size lurid figure who, with its jovial bird-like alien companions, irritates and removes the eyes of its sleeping victims.
The short and shlocky monster film is loosely modelled on themes found in the ETA Hofmann novel ‘The Sandman’ which harnesses the power of nightmares and the visceral quality of practical effect heavy 80’s Science Fiction Horror films.

Director Statement

Dancing through a whimsical existence- horrified with humour, sticky and smiling.

I attempt to absorb the schlock of science fiction horror films and mutate the goop of their legacy; the good and the bad- and especially the ugly. Making alien with human hands.
