My films and photographs are about ordinary people. The comments on film festivals are based on my own hit/miss experiences since writing and directing my 3 short films.
The above photo lets you see what I look like (or remind you if we've met). There is too much info here but it will explain what interests me.

I have made 3 short films. They have been more successful than I could ever have dreamt. They have all won awards. Highlights were when 'The Morning News' was presented with an award and $1000 by Australia's Minister of Arts in Sydney, winning the Waterford Festival and touring Germany with 'This is England'.
'Call Me Son' won awards in Toronto as the most requested and popular short film (following an interview I did on the radio when people started ringing in to buy tickets to see it). The young actor 'Ciaran Flynn' was seen in 'Call Me Son' by Ridley Scott's company and won a part in Robin Hood playing opposite Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett.
STANDUP has just won a major award at the Rhode Island International Film Festival in August 2012. It is a comedy plus drama about the aftermath of teen suicide.
THE MORNING NEWS and CALL ME SON are now both on youtube. HERE. STANDUP is only now going to festivals around the world.
