early films

Based in part on Franz Kafka's 'The Trial' the film follows an unwitting traveller, lost in a city of surveillance and suspicion. His access to knowledge and information is closely monitored, and eventually he reaches a door to what he believes to be an escape, only to fail at the last as the doorkeeper denies him passage.


This stopmotion film was shot on B&W 16mm, with audio post-production at De Lane Lea Studios. It was screened at the Electric Cinema, Portobello and at the Edinburgh International Film Festival in 1990.

strangeness  2004

'Strangeness' was a 2 minute short produced in response to the challenge - make a film based on the idea of a foriegn film. Taking these words and their multiple individual meanings a loose abstract narrative developed. Ideas of alienation, difference, surface and texture inspired a range of visual responses.


This short was set to a score by the French composer Yann Tiersen.


The film has not been screened in competition or festivals.
