This is my most recent short film.  It’s currently a finalist in the Ignite Short Film Festival.  You can vote for it here, as well as watch the other 17 finalists.  They are all under five minutes, and all based on a Bible passage that features the word “hope”.  Well worth a look!  And of course, I’d love you to vote for mine :)

The Parting

A short film that Michael Gibson and I made for the Ignite Short Film Festival 2005 in Sydney. It is based on the story of Exodus 14 (the people of Israel being delivered from Egypt through the parted sea), but told from the perspective of a fish. It raises some of the questions brought up in the passage – when you realise who is in control, would you fear and trust him? It can feel a little like a comedy when you first meet the fish, but the narration and music is much more serious. (I like to think of it as a the Matrix meeting Free Willy – “My name is Nemo!”)

Starring James Deeth (Gillford’s voice).
Script by Guangyao Un and Michael Snowdon.
Music: ‘I Set Myself on Fire’ by Juxtapose (used with permission) – juxtaposemusic.com

Decisions, Decisions

Another short film I made for advertising Mid Year Conference at UNSW on ‘Guidance’ in 2007.
It was also entered into the Ignite Short Film Festival 2007 in Sydney (Winning Best Actor). It raises the question of our desire for guidance and where we might look for it. It is a kind of awkward comedy with fast paced dialogue.

Starring Marty Clarke and Jonathan Marquet.
Script by Guangyao Un and Michael Snowdon.

Blindness

A short film I made for the Ignite Short Film Festival 2010 in Sydney. It raises a key Biblical question – what does it mean to see?

Starring Daniel Morris.

It is set to an instrumental version of ‘Nothing But the Blood’ by Page CXVI (used with permission).

It was shot on a Canon HG20 using a lens adapter and Canon SLR 50mm lens.
