A Work of Art – short film

A Work of Art is a British horror/drama short film I worked on last year and am proud to share with you all today! I was approached by Cameron King, who I met through Persona. His directing partner Emma Ashley had an idea for a grisly psychological horror and asked me if I wanted to write the script. I was delighted to work on this gruesome and frankly terrifying idea, with themes of obsessional love and the lengths an artist will go to for his work. If you would like to read my original script - the version we finalised before shooting - you can download it here. It's interesting to see what made the final cut and how the words on the page were translated to screen. If you enjoyed the film, please share and like the Facebook Page. We're hoping to take it on the film festival circuit this year and it would be great to rally some early support....

Because it portrays the struggle of the indie film company and the hard work and dedication of so many individuals. And it's our story too. Check it out here....
