'Blokes' Short Film Shoot

I had a great time working on a new short film called ‘Blokes’. It stars Robin Berry & Tom Slatter, who also wrote and produced the film so I was happy to step in to help them out especially after all the great work they did for me on Bad Words and Luminous Man.

Bad Words - Best Micro Comedy Short Film @ Berlin Flash Film Festival

My 60 second short film ‘Bad Words’ has just won the Best Micro Comedy short film award at the Berlin Flash Film Festival Nov 2017

Doug Naylor - Red Dwarf Co-Creator

I had the pleasure of meeting Doug Naylor, the co-creator Red Dwarf.

That show has always had a huge inspiration to me. The perfect combination of great characters and cast, brilliant jokes and some of the most inventive and weird storylines you’ll find in a sitcom (or anywhere for that matter). The fact it’s still going strong after 25 years is also pretty amazing.

So it was great to hear some writing advice from one of the super minds behind it.

Comedy Directing Showreel

I recently put together this showreel of the best of my comedy work in TVC’s, viral and short films.


Luminous Man

My new funny short film Luminous Man, all about the secret high visibility world...



It was actually filmed the same day as my previous little short Bad Words.

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.
