Cradle poster onesheet v1

Logline: A man risks his body and mind to right a terrible wrong.

A young man walks in to a dingy and seemingly abandoned building with nothing but a chair, a notebook and a backpack of supplies. He looks like he’s been walking forever. After looking over the bleak surroundings, he sets up his chair in the middle of the room and begins to prepare himself.

After downing a large amount of food and water, he reaches into his pocket and retrieves a notebook. The notebook is filled from cover to cover with hand-drawn symbols, equations and notes.

Near the end of the book are several pages containing patches, each with a hand-drawn value next to them. The young man takes a patch with the value of ‘1’ written next to it and applies it to his neck. He takes a deep breath, closes his eyes and then…

News & Reviews

Director Statement

ON SUNDAY is a my paean to the science fiction films of my childhood. I wanted to create a simple film that told a story in its own time and captured the sense of wonder I feel is lost in many of the films released today.

‘ON SUNDAY’ took 5 years to complete – mainly because I did it ‘Gareth Edwards’ style taking on around 90% of the films production and post production myself and having to learn around 5 different CG packages from scratch in order to create the ship wreck which features in the film.

This film is a thank you to my Dad, who actually features in the film. Way back in 1984 he hand built a cabin bed for my bedroom and underneath this, made from wood, flashing lights and copper piping he’d constructed a spaceship cockpit. I was 6 years old and via fuzzy VHS’s already indoctrinated in the ways of the force, last star fighters and Xenomorphs – my dad used to censor the scary bits by recording Sunday Cricket over them. The finished cabin bed was a fledgling geek’s dream come true.

31 years later I thought it was past time to repay the favour and build him his very own spaceship.

Short Film playing at the Los Angeles Sci-Fi FEEDBACK Film Festival on Thursday June 1st. GET your FREE TICKETS

Started his career an editor and then a motion-graphic designer. Then found his place on movie sets as an Assistant Director. He work on feature films like “La journée de la jupe”, “Erreur de la Banque”, “La Rafle”, “Rien à Déclarer”, “Monte Carlo”, “Sherlock Holmes 2”, and “De l’huile sur le feu”.

Now he writes scripts and make shorts because he has things to say about his life and the life of others, but mostly because he is a movie buff.
