What's happening

Some great news to report, we have a music composer working on 'Stalking' currently doing the sound, foley, and music over in London! Rob Knight from Sonik Lab is onboard taking the short to the next level! 

Also, the novel version of Redeemed has been completed, revised, looked over by SAS Military Advisers, C17 Pilots, Intelligence Ops for authenticity, polished, and read by a professional author friend of mine, and finally submitted for publishing consideration. 

I've taken up fashion photography in what little spare time I have to keep the creative edge flowing. 


More updates to come!

Stalking is a wrap! BTS photos

Well 'Stalking' is a wrap and I want to thank my amazing crew for a wonderful job!

My actors Trudi Michelle and Morgan Allan are beautiful and talented!

My DOP Glen Bowden is a master

The hair and make up by David Moore was perfect

My boom operator Tony Collins showed his skill in difficult scenarios

My darling wife Evita did an incredible job as my 1st AD

WE DID IT!

Now to the edit suite!

Also a massive thank you to Megan Gale for allowing us to use her Swimwear line Isola, and to her sales manager Tash Tanti for helping us buy them direct!

Cheers

Redeemed and Stalking Progress

Well it's been a while since I blogged and for that I apologise but here's an update!

Redeemed continues progressing as a novel, chipping away at the pages bit by bit, and my short film 'Stalking' is slowly moving forward.

After casting Morgan Allan and Trudi Michelle as my lead actresses, their schedules don't line up with the location availability till February...

So in the mean time I did a photo shoot for the poster of the film with DOP Glen Bowden

Here's some of the shots!
