Trash Humpers (Harmony Korine, 2009)
For what may seem to parade as a lack of plot and substance at first, Trash Humpers proves to delve deeper into the American psyche turning from points of total demented absurdity, beguiling violence and eerie urban landscapes to a VHS testament of ultimately remorseful trauma and human isolation. It may appear pretentious and disturbing, even inhumane, but the trash humpers are far too funny and fascinating to look away.
A group of aging senior-citizens film their shenanigans and desecrations in a run-down American town.
In order to stay more active in the brain and creativity departments, I’ve started this new film review blog. Check it out for irregular updates on both new and old cool films and the watercolor film stills to accompany them!
Hey World Wide Web! Please help us achieve our fundraising goal to make our graduation film happen! We are so very close to achieving it and as a little as a £1 will go a long way! It’s a highly entertaining film and we’ve got a great, professional crew! It would be a shame to not be able to distribute this unique little film to the rest of the world! Please and thank you everyone!

IT’S PLUGGING TIME. Boy, oh boy.
This is the short film I wrote over summer. After being deemed good enough to adapt to the big screen by my film course, this short film has managed to gain all of my attention and efforts. Luckily, I like the damn thing so the resentment level is low.
Now that my job as the writer is pretty much done, I’ll be stepping in as the director of photography. Christopher Doyle move over! (yeah right, but I’ll do my best).
For anyone who glances at this blog, please check out the film’s indiegogo page and throw us a few of your pennies. I mean, yeah you could buy a gum ball with those 25cents, or you can feed a hungry cinematographer. I guess gum balls are pretty satisfying.
Anway, It’s a pretty ambitious project, but that’s just filmmaking for you isn’t it? It’s all “realizing” something, maybe a dream, maybe just a script, but the term “realizing” nevertheless has some pretty gigantic connotations. And I think people of all walks of life can appreciate a good story, which I’m banking this is.
Have a look, share with people if you like it, if you don’t then that’s cool, get yourself a big ol’ gum ball and enjoy your day.
Working on a website is a great side distraction from doing actual work (unless that is your job, in which case write a dissertation on disillusionment in 1960s America to get you through the day).
Still poor for a proper domain name, but better days will come.
This is a poster that will be printed to help promote my friend’s documentary “Love at First Sight.” I’ll be helping out with some camera work and additional illustrations (perhaps even some diy animation!)
Have a look and see how you can support this exciting new project:

Time to dust away those world-wide cobwebs and update this blog.
It’s been back to the grind these past few months. Not only am I back at university but it’s also my last year. Armed with a film degree from a modestly sized art school, who knows what possibilities may come my way after this academic year… but until then, let’s reminisce the great summer of 2012:
