    Alan’s creative practice began in his childhood, creating fantastical hybrid creatures using old toys and a tube of glue. Currently entering his 14thth year of practice, Alan’s passion is making animals and creatures from mostly found and recycled metal; transforming recognisable every day objects into beautifully detailed, sculptural artworks. His unique hand crafted works imaginatively reference nature; animals, plants, textures, form and movement. Commissions include sculpture, architectural installations, furniture and many of his public artworks are on display in locations throughout Sussex and the UK.

    Ben Cox - Director
    "This film is the result of the wanting to create a passion project based around a local Brighton artist. The resulting film has surpassed all my original expectations both in the final product and the experience I had in making it. Working with Alan over the 6 months has been a wonderful experience and I have been exposed to an artist of great talent, imagination and humility. The project has been a wonderful collaboration, with Alan putting a lot of trust and faith in me as a filmmaker and I enjoyed every second of it".

  2. "In the vast waters of the Salish Sea, dwells an unseen glory... an abundance of life."
    This is a glimpse into the life of the fishing industry in Bellingham, WA. Not many know the details of the complex process that fish take from the sea to the dinner table. This film tells the story of just a few individuals who give of themselves every day to feed the masses.
    I came onto this project at the beginning of August and hit the ground running, learning about a complex industry that I knew nothing of. Being from the Midwest, I was completely green to every aspect. It is indeed a way of life that has shaped the PNW for centuries. Seeing the love the fishers, harvesters, processors, tenders, chefs, and retailers put behind their work for seafood was incredibly inspiring. It is truly an art-form.
    They are your unseen masters, your neighbors, your family, your servants of the Salish Sea.

    I wanted to share my animated sci-fi short Gleep-Glorp & Lasertag: it combines 2D characters soaked in neons with fully-constructed miniature sets and stop-motion background elements made with lots of cardboard n' glue. Thanks!
