In 2008 I co-wrote a short film with Thomas Wightman and Rob Bailey which went on to receive funding
from Northwest Vision and Media's Virgin Shorts 2008 competition. 'Outside' was shot over four consecutive
days in locations around the North of England on a budget of £2,500. The short was directed by Wightman
with production design by myself and Bailey.

The film explores ideas about how advancement in technology has effected the way we communicate and
how as a result it may impact our society and environment.

'Outside' was shortlisted in the Top 20 Experimental category of the Vimeo awards 2010.
