Director Statement

My film 'Buckshot' was made on a film and video workshop run by Simon Oatley, with 5 weeks of pre-production, and 1 week of production time. I loved every second of working on it with my incredible team, and in the company of an awesome tutor; my main goal was to leave a world and an emotional impact on the viewer. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I enjoyed making it.
