- Day 85Day 85 in lockdown. Following the sad monotony of day to day life during a pandemic, the meticulousness required to keep safe, and some fun memories from the times before lockdown.

- The CupboardThis is a short that I made on my phone while in isolation during the Coronavirus pandemic. I shot it on an iPhone X, edited it in iMovie, and used free music from iMovie - “Fol de Rol” by Claude Oak. The idea is mine, from a shot list I was previously working on. This version of the short was part of the official selection for MicroMania Film Fest 2020, the Los Angeles Motion Picture Festival 2020, and won the award for Best Mobile/Feature Film in the UK Motion Picture Festival 2020.
