Company Men


Short film for Sci-Fi London 48 hours challenge.
Directed by Thomas K. Shannon
worked in Writing, Cinematography, Editing and Colour Grading.

I participated with a bunch of friends to the Sci-Fi London 2014 film challenge. We were given a few lines of dialogue, a title and a prop to use. We dedicated the first day to writing, organising cast (that we auditioned a few days before the challenge by making them read a scene from Looper) setting up the lab and securing other locations. On the second and final day, we had 2 shooting units to cover the locations in the least time. The night was entirely dedicated to editing and grading.

Short film: Minotaur
Written, Directed, Produced, Edited.

The film shows the complex relationship between a mute boy and his abusive father in the middle of the Yorkshire Moors in northern England.

This was my end of year project at Central Saint Martins. After my dissertation, I was given 3 months to work on 6 self initiated projects in film/animation. I decided instead to work on 1 single project in which I would wear as many hats as possible and learn more in the process.

I written the script in about a month. Pre Production took an extra month to have time to cast, find the house in yorkshire and the right crew. Post-Production took a month, 2 weeks for editing, 2 weeks for colour grading, all done at the film facilities at CSM.
