Introducing my first independent film, DISHONEST a cyber-noir, action-horror movie. A tense yet fast paced story centred on a Deep Web conspiracy, set within the idyllic country setting of Ashwood Forest. The movie was made alongside friends & local talent, within Warwickshire & Leicestershire.
DISHONEST received acclaimed festival awards & selections including the Horror-On-Sea Festival 2022. Best Thriller - New York Tri-State Short Film Festival, Best Producer - Tokyo International Shorts & Honourable Mention Award at Roma International Short Film Fest.

The late Bill Maynard read for a role in DISHONEST; a dog walker who discovers a severed arm in the forest.
As Godfather to co-producer Kirk Bromley - the famous character actor received a scripted scene; a part reminiscent to his beloved 'Greengrass' character.
Bill passed on the role for logistical concerns, but wished success for the creators & their project.
The scene was later reimagined as a boy on a bike, searching for his pet dog - This part went to John Ryan's nephew Pierce Ryan
