I have always been a fan of film and television, however, it was not until during my studies in Animation where I realised that I had a passion to work in the live-action medium as well.
I began amassing my own selection of equipment during the pandemic and immediately found that owning this equipment and having it to hand was super useful to help me to continue to learn and develop my skillset in this medium.
With my education being in animation and not live-action, I have done my best to transfer what I know
I had the amazing opportunity to me the videographer for a beautiful wedding here in Cardiff.
This was a first for me; and despite being a long day, it proved very rewarding and highly memorable.
The outputs from my end contained a video of the entire day, a teaser video, a video of the ceremony and even a 'talking head' montage.
My graduate film, 'Page's Edge', is a hybrid of live-action and animation where we follow a school boy's drawing come to life and struggle with the confines of the page.
Despite winning multiple awards, the two festivals I was most honoured to be selected for were the 'British Short Film Awards' due to its prestige, and the 'Golden Knight Film Festival Malta' due to my Maltese heritage.
"A brilliant mix of live action and animation. Very clever and well crafted with some great gags. A feel good and inventive watch."

Flotsam & Jetsam BTS
Documenting the manic and chaotic process behind creating a 9 minute stop-motion film in your bedroom...during a pandemic. Watch as filmmaker Felix Surplus fills his lungs with flour and forever disrupts his - and others' - sleep schedule.
Felix's stop-motion short film 'Flotsam & Jetsam' has gone on to win multiple awards. So I am thrilled to have been able to see the madness behind the project.
Anamorphic Lens Test
For this project I worked alongside the organisation 'Care For The Family', I was tasked with making 5 animated clips to use as transitions during their live show.
The event, 'An Evening with Rob Parsons', was a celebration of the life of one of one of the core people of the organisation who was set to retire. Each of the animated segments follow Rob at a different moment in his life.
After having seen my graduate film, 'Care For The Family' asked for this project to follow the same rotoscope style as 'Page's Edge'.
