January - Being a Wild Thing.
Adapted D. Gilson’s amazing poem ‘Where The Wild Things Go’ into a short film starring my favourite Irish actor John Morton and the INCREDIBLE Clare Monnelly. Seriously, I’ll work with Clare Monnelly until I die. Film will be out soon, very proud of it.
February - Thoughts on Shitting or Getting off the Pot.
Above is a cool Frank Miller drawing. I love Frank Miller drawings. I thought one day, what if that guy from the above drawing was a mute, the star of his own movie where the IRA execute him and his wife, but he survives the bullet, is mortally wounded, and has maybe an hour to kill everyone that wronged him in a weird, fantasy dreamland of a film. So yeah. I’m making that this year, first feature film, Ben Wheatley ‘Down Terrace’ job. Time to go, basically. Oh, and it’s called ‘The Dead Man’.
March - Resting.
Mad personal shit this month. Took time off my own stuff and just worked on my day-job. Sad.
April - Writing and Commercials.
A lot of writing and pitching on stuff this month. Wrote a pilot script for a series based on my short “Lost and Found” which I reckon could be really cool if anyone would like to give me a series order. That’d be fab. Quite a bit of “FILMMAKING IS FUTILE” moments this month, but I’m in a transition phase so leave me alone. Booked myself back into therapy. I’ll recommend therapy until the day I die. Moved into a new house. It’s nice! Solid month. Excited to debut the new shorts “Where The Wild Things Go”, “Stephanie”, and “Something Doesn’t Feel Right”, this year. Just gotta keep grinding. Finding I don’t enjoy days off, unsure if that’s a good thing or bad thing.
