(www.offplanetfilms.com) I make short experimental films in Tasmania, Australia, using mostly 2D puppetry & basic animation techniques. I'm the co-writer, editor, co-director & sound designer for "Off Planet Films".

I just adapted what I've always done with comics & applied the same storytelling techniques to filmmaking.

The middle section with the confessional box was extremely curious, and it opened up many more questions than it eventually... read
A review of New Roommateby tompriestley on 03/07/2008I loved the central idea to this fun short... the whole concept of catching the positive thinking yuppie with the photo of his dead girlfriend was a stroke of genius. The half improvised acting was carried out quite well overall... I think it benefited from not being overly scripted. The casting was perfect in all the roles. My only criticism was perhaps the camerawork was... read
