New Doomsday Ready Episodes

I’ve been making a few new episodes of my comedy web-series ‘Doomsday Ready’ for YouTube. As before it’s a bit of a solo effort; I star in them and also shot and do all the editing. It’s quite a good filmmaking challenge! Here a couple of my favourite recent episodes:

Black Helicopter Attack


Swiss Army Knife

'Bad Words' - Comedy Sketch

I have a new comedy sketch film called ‘Bad Words’. It’s a fun little sketch about the damage certain words can do. Shot in only about an hour after a long day filming something entirely different.

Hearing from a true legend Michael Chapman. The man who DP’d Taxi Driver and Raging Bull. He was also camera operator on Jaws and The Godfather!
