Director Statement

I've been working my way up to producing a complete short film, I've created a few showreels and shorts and really wanted to tell a full story. This is the result of pushing my various skills to the limit over a few weeks of planning, writing scripts, recording music, experimenting with green screen VFX, acting then editing, colour grading and producing a succinct 15 minute story. All shot on the most basic of equipment for the cost of a tank of fuel!
