ALLEN & MERVE (2015)
“Allen and Merve” is a remake of a 2004 cartoon by my old school friend Jim Hort. I tasked myself to clean up all of the original audio and to create something that would not look out of place online today. Allen and Merve just want to sit around watching TV, it shouldn’t be as hard as it is.

JOHN THE FISHERMAN (2015)
Originally written in 2008 and set in the Northern Rivers town of Ballina, “John the Fisherman” was a project that spent almost a decade on the back burner. Despite being in production for all that time the core idea never changed from the original inspiration of seeing one lone man fishing in the same spot almost daily.

BAR

WHITE EYES (2014)
After numerous failed attempts to reboot the Gerkinman character I felt it was time to give the idea true closure so that I could move on. “White Eyes” was that closure I needed, even if the film itself doesn’t make much sense to anybody other than myself.
