I have been lucky enough to be working on the new Phillip K Dick’s ‘Electric Dreams’ for Left Bank Pictures, Sony and Bryan Cranston’s new company Moonbit. The epic production design is by Lisa Marie-Hall . I have been wanting to work with Lisa for a few years now and this is a huge job for it too! I am just on the one episode. Really good to be doing some Sci-Fi for such an outstanding series.
I helped make these awesome Light Brigade letters for the Animal Justice Project for the first of its kind in the UK. I also edited this little video for them. Check them out! They do great work for Animals in Labs! -www.animaljusticeproject.com
I shot a little short film this weekend which I wrote and directed called ‘The Skin You’re In’. It is similar to The Herd but shorter, punchier and about the Fur Industry.
A little video I made for the Bristol Animal Save at Tulip slaughter house.
Bristol Pig Save bears witness to pigs going to slaughter using a love based community approach.
They hold vigils every Thursday at Tulip slaughterhouse in Westerleigh.

Love & Loss a short film Melanie directed in September is currently in post production. The short is a cross over of two successful web series characters. Dear Jesus meets Shrink. Two women discuss life in a bar before realising what needs to change.
SWITCH my first short film is playing along with some other great British made horror short films in Berlin in January, at the wonderful Berlin British Short film festival. Screening at the Midnight Movies section. Thanks Berlin British shorts for playing all three shorts i’ve made! Happy 10th Anniverscary!

This week I got to finally share the gorgeous Lounge Kittens video online , loved being able to shoot with an Arri Alexa again and with our little crew I think we did a great job!
I’ve been quite these last few months due to working flat out on a new ITV drama for Left Bank Pictures called ‘The Halcyon’ as a stand-by art director ( gotta pay those bills ) but on the odd day off I have been trying to keep up with little directing gigs. I was fortunate enough to do this fun little video about cat calling. I mixed in my passion for female superheros ( or lack of ) and made this on a crazy Saturday afternoon in East London in June with some friends. It’s even been blogged by Amanda Palmer! ace aye! Thanks Meow Meow’s!
The Herd for free online!
Last week through the animal charity Viva and White Lies The Herd went online for free. In a week we have had over 14.2k plays. Which is incredible! It is playing all over the world right now which is so wonderful. Thanks everyone!
