Human beings love telling and hearing stories. They make us think and imagine and empathise. They bring us together. When told well, they give us a brief escape from our mundane existence, a mind break. At their most powerful, they can change our thinking and inspire us to greatness in action or spirit.
The form of storytelling varies. For some it’s music or dance or theatre (I have directed a few of these over the years), but for me, I have been a film tragic for decades. Everything I’ve made feels like practice for a feature film one day and one day that will happen, be it on a shoestring or properly funded. In the meantime, you’re welcome to enjoy my ‘experiments’. Even writing this makes me want to make another short!
