Bio

I've recently graduated from a Film and Video BA (Hons) course at the Surrey Institute of Art and Design in England. I'm currently working on the script for my fist feature film, and am in post on three films, two of which are being made by my company Tiga Kali Studio (see www.tigakalistudio.co.uk for more info). My taste in films is pretty wide, and I like both mainstream and arthouse material. My favourite directors include: Carl Th. Dreyer, Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton, Martin Scorsese, Steven Soderbergh, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Richard Linklater and Ingmar Bergman. Mainly, I just like films which engage successfully on either an emotional or an intellecual level (or both!). As well as films I'm into music and reading, but aren't we all? My favourite bands include The Wildhearts, Less Than Jake, Metallica and Pantera, and my favourite authors include Nikos Kazantzakis, William Thackeray, Douglas Coupland, Alan Moore and Brian Michael Bendis.

    In my opinion, ĎThe Furnitureí succeeds on the level that it was intended to (which I believe is, ultimately, the most important level for a film to succeed on!). The film was amusing, the images had a nice texture to them, and the in-camera effects were impressively done. Overall I thought it was a well crafted piece: nice lighting, editing, sound, etc, and all professionally... read

    This was great. The script was very smart and very funny, and kept me entertained and interested throughout. If I had to criticise then Iíd say that some of the cuts seemed a bit false and I found a couple of them a bit jarring, and Iíd also say that overall this seems like a film which will play better to filmmakers than to a wider audience. So, somewhere like Trigger Street... read
