    It is a period of galactic instability. The Imperial Empire of the Imperium is locked in a bitter civil war between the Empiricists and the rebel forces, who champion the metric system but mainly just want to stay alive.

    Rebel forces have recently destroyed three Death Stars, floating space weapons of almost unimaginable power and equally unimaginable design flaws. Never one to abandon an idea just because of a long history of preventable failure, the Empire has begun construction of its latest super weapon, an improved prototype known as the Death Cube. Onboard, a new team assembles to keep it safe.

  2. ‘Hourglass’ was made for the London Sci Fi 48 Hour Film Challenge

    It was just a regular bank job - get in, open the safe, empty the safety deposit boxes, inadvertently steal an alien device, activate a sentry robot, get vaporised, get out. Six minutes, tops. Some of them made it back. It's not over.

    You are a gang of criminals.
    We are an ancient, warrior, race.
    You are weak.
    We can twist reality, tear your world apart.
    You have the Hourglass.
    We want it back.

  3. This is my submission for the 10-week course, T156: Digital Film Making at the Open University.

    We had several options for our assessments, but I naturally chose the narrative/short-drama piece.

    Shot on a hacked (Vitaliy Kiselev) Panasonic GH2 using Driftwood's Sedna AQ1 settings, using a Panasonic 14/25 and a Tokina 20-35/2.8. Edited in PP CS5.5 and Audition, Graded in AE5.5 using Shian Storm's excellent ColorGhear Presets, Workflows and Tutorials (

    Hey, it's not perfect in many ways, but it was more about learning than it was producing something perfect. Still, I'm pleased with the output with the time and resources that were available.

    Title: Unwritten

    Line: A perfectly ordinary person is rare in our society

    Prop: I (Heart) Badge: We see a character pin a badge with “I (The heart symbol) and any word” on to another character or an object - not just put on desk etc, must be ‘pinned’.

    This was an amazing experience and I can't thank enough all of the people that helped us out.

  5. In 2015 the UK Government initiated the largest ever test of a synthetic virus, aimed at subduing people with specific characteristics. It went horribly wrong. 300 Hours contains edited footage from the diary of the project's chief scientist, as a chilling warning to future generations.
