Short films

I enjoy direct­ing films and have been lucky enough to work with some tal­ented, help­ful and friendly people who humoured me – and, of course, who shared my enthu­si­asm for the art. I have worked on five short films so far, the first of which is for­get­table. Below are the other four.

Not all of these are avail­able to watch online although their trail­ers are (see links below). Some of these have been show­cased in film fes­ti­vals while others are making the fes­ti­val cir­cuit, for exam­ple, being in con­sid­er­a­tion at the Big Apple Film Fes­ti­val, New York, and the Boul­der Inter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, Col­orado. Some of us appeared on local tele­vi­sion too – for origami – and it was quite fun.

The Cap­tive — watch the trailer below

The final instal­ment in my Out­doors tril­ogy explor­ing human nature set in an unre­al­is­ti­cally iso­lated world. This film looks at mul­ti­ple facets of human emo­tion from com­pan­ion­ship and lone­li­ness to empa­thy and our inher­ent social nature. But not every­thing is as it seems.

Film two in my Out­doors tril­ogy explor­ing human nature set in an unre­al­is­ti­cally iso­lated world. This one is about des­per­a­tion. On the sur­face this is about a bike theft, but the story inside is an explo­ration of the lines humans are pre­pared to cross to save them­selves. Watch the trailer.

Film one in my Out­doors tril­ogy explor­ing human nature set in an unre­al­is­ti­cally iso­lated world. This one is about the deep, unin­ten­tional con­nec­tions we share. A jogger and a man dying of cancer start to affect each other’s lives greatly only through a single piece of paper. Watch the trailer.

Also watch some of the cast and crew on a live tele­vi­sion inter­view with a local chan­nel. The inter­view is about 30 min long.

When a pho­tog­ra­pher dis­cov­ers a long lost pic­ture made by his favourite pho­tog­ra­pher, he sets out on a mad­den­ing jour­ney to recre­ate the mas­ter­piece. He fails mis­er­ably but learns an invalu­able lesson about art on the way. Watch the trailer.

Devel­op­ing on the events fol­low­ing Edgar Allen Poe’s short story The tell­tale heart, this film explores how the guilt of com­mit­ting murder weighs on a crim­i­nal who ulti­mately sees solace only in death. Watch the trailer.

There might be another one coming soon. See The Cap­tive above.
