1. We made this short music film for War on Want (waronwant.org) and our good friends at G2 Studios in Sheffield (g2studios.co.uk).

    They came up with the idea of producing an album in 24 hours using local artists and with all proceeds going to War on Want. This film is a snapshot of that process and a sampler for some of the music on the album.

  2. 'Closure’ is a short, experimental documentary focusing on one woman’s valiant campaign to save her childhood home (a local pub) from closure and demolition.

    As hopes for the campaign fade in the face of unrealistic renovation costs, Úna reflects upon the connection between the building's deterioration and that of both her ageing mother (the former landlady) and her local community.

    Úna's benevolent actions and efforts meet blow after blow until all that remains is a pile of rubble. But internally, her ability to forge connections with others and her relentless positivity mean that ultimately, her memories are enough. She engineers her own form of closure.

    In an attempt to express Úna's inward journey, the events of the film are presented in a reversed chronology, beginning with the pub's demolition and ending with Úna’s earliest memories.

    The film is currently being distributed to festivals around the world.

  4. A short documentary I've put together about the artist Simon Haw. I felt a really strong connection with Simon when I met him and although I didn't fully understand everything he was telling me on the day of filming, after going through the footage, I began to interpret and infer things about his backstory and inner emotional life. I hope you find something interesting in here too.

    Simon was born in York in 1965. In his youth he was an excellent tennis player. At eighteen, shortly after beginning an art course, Simon was involved in a road traffic accident that resulted in a very serious head injury and sight loss. His eye condition is Myopia, which makes it easier for him to see objects that are near to him than objects in the distance. Simon is registered as sight impaired.

    Filmed at Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre, Knaresborough, Yorkshire, UK.
