Hi

Recently I directed two short films (BAT EYES, BOOT) which have been selected (from 15,000 submissions) as two of 50 semi-finalists for the inaugural YouTube film festival: Your Film Festival! The films were both shot by DOP Simon Chapman (The Loved One, Griff The Invisible). We shot both films back-to-back with the same crew in three days. Simon and I have collaborated on four short films in the last two years and plan to shoot a feature soon.

Until July 13 you can vote to determine 10 finalists to attend and show their work during the 2012 Venice Film Festival. A grand prize winner will then be named by a special jury and awarded a $500,000 grant to create a new work, produced by Ridley Scott's production company, Scott Free.

You can view (and vote) for BAT EYES here: http://www.bateyesan...com/votebateyes

And BOOT here: http://www.bateyesandboot.com/voteboot

A lot of love went into our films and I’m very excited about this latest development. I think Simon did a fantastic job and I hope you’ll check them out.

cheers

Thanks to everyone who viewed and voted in YouTube's Your Film Festival. Very pleased to let you know that BAT EYES, was voted a finalist and will be screened at the 69th Venice Film Festival, where I’m in the running for a 500k production grant from Ridley Scott’s production company Scott Free. Fingers crossed!
