Personal Space is a short film that I have been working on for a number of years. It first started to take shape during a 48 Hour Film Challenge in 2015, but was unfortunalty left unfinsihed.
In 2016 my good friend and collaborator Dan Davis and I re-shot the film, with him in the starring role. After a lot of work, it is now finished!
It debuted at the:
2018 FGU Film Festival (UK)
And has gone one to be shown at:
The Cefalù Film Festival in Sicily (Italy)
The Beer Town Film Festival (UK)
The story follows a lonely astronaut through their day-to-day life. Friendship is at the heart of the film and is soemthing that was at the heart of the process too.
The/Us is a recent collage piece that explores the relationship that is the juxtaposition of natural & political disaster, & pop-culture. Living with these element simultaneously we used to seeing them on the front of newspapers or on television.
Them/Us goes on to explore this relationship through history & allows a space to ask some uncomfortable questions.
Them/Us debuted at the Artizan Gallery’s Summer Open on Fleet Walk, Torquay 16th July - 26th August.
