Good news. ‘Conscription’ has made it all the way to Croatia for the One Take Film Festival. It has been officially selected alongside the other finalists of the One Shot Movie Competition, which screened the film at the Hackney Picturehouse Cinema, London, in September. The team behind the One Shot Movie Competition set it all up and they have my gratitude. It’s the first of my films to go international.

The year is 1939, and a young man, alone in his flat, checks the strength of the rope on his noose.

Here’s the new teaser trailer for my latest micro-short, ‘Conscription’.

Here’s the poster for ‘Conscription’, a short drama, made especially for the One Shot Movie Competition, for which it was shortlisted, making the final screening at the Hackney Attic Picturehouse Cinema, London. It’s my third short, and first since leaving university in the summer. 
I’m currently toying with the idea of cutting a teaser trailer, but at 2.30 in length and all filmed in one shot it’s difficult. We’ll see.

Here it is - the music video for Buggin’, the track by producer and DJ, Alex Theobold, a.k.a Erle Gray, that I began working on a couple of months ago. Alex’s 2012 Deafhaus residency has seen him play alongside the likes of Audiofly, Kris Wadsworth, Andre Lodemann, wAFF, Horatio and Darius Syrossian as well as the best local talent from Manchester and the UK, including Content and Louche residents. Alex is also currently finalizing a release date for a new EP which will be available later in the year.

All the footage was sourced and edited by myself. Just a little something to fill the void.

Erle Gray - Buggin’
Due to lack of funds I have some free time on my hands, so I’ve started working on a music video for producer and DJ, Alex Theobold, a.k.a Erle Gray; the track in question being ‘Buggin.’ The video is compiled purely from archive footage, used subjectively to build a narrative. Just a little something to fill the void.

Conscription Visual Mood-boards | DoP Paddy McGowan
Just found my copy of the visual mood-boards for ‘Conscription’, sent to me by my DoP on the project, Paddy McGowan. Always nice to know that your cinematographer is on the same page and these were Paddy’s first impressions after reading the script. Spot on.
