About

I'm an independent film-maker currently living in Auckland, New Zealand.

I work full time as an Online Editor and motion picture workflow nerd at Images&Sound specialising in operating Autodesk Smoke and Avid Symphony.

I collect vinyl, laser-discs and sneakers.

This is a collection of my work, my photos, what I'm listening to and what is inspiring me.

I curate a more tumblr-like tumblog called Apple Of Discordia - if i re-blogged you it was probably over there!

Boy, this has been a loooong time in the making, but I’m so proud of the finished product!

Inspired by the fine art of Julie Mehretu this music video was a collaboration with Wellington motion-graphics artist Lucas Brooking. Lucas is an amazing designer and we were absolutely over-the-moon to work with him. Check out more of his work here lucasbrooking.co.nz

Our entry in the 2011 v48Hours furious film-making competition. 

Written, shot and edited in 48 hours.

Jodie Hillock plays Larissa, a tough-as-guts homicide detective who is as straight as an arrow. Less can be said, however, for her partner Victor played by Leighton Cardno. 

Set in a futurist present, the pair are sent on a routine enquiry which doesn’t exactly go to plan.

This year the compulsory elements were…

Genre: Mystery
Character: Bobby Young, an ex-bully
Prop: A bent bit of wire
Line: “What have you got?”
Technical element: Freeze frame ending
