13th Jan 2013 London Short Film Festival - Screening of 'PROTO'
The UK premiere of 'PROTO' was awesome and it was great to catch up with everyone from the filming and production of the film. The screening was great and we got to see some other very well produced films.
With the loss of Rushes Soho Shorts festival it's important that short films have a dedicated festival in London and I think they are in safe hands with the guys at LSFF.
PROTO got a nice big round of applause, which was also great and I look forward to taking it onto Berlin next month.

26th June 2012 Retro Futurism
I love this stuff. The idealistic dreams of a future that for the most part is actually happening. Video phones! Moving sidewalks! Robots! Flying Cars! Ready meals! Holograms!Ok, so we don't have hoverboards. But we're not SUPPOSED to have those until 2015. Plenty of time yet, science! Chop-chop!
In the meantime, watch this awesome, inspiring video, narrated by Mr Neil deGrasse Tyson:
