Easy Does It

I always considered making a film was equivalent to taking part in some sort of odd science experiment. So many different pieces need to come together and balanced the right way to get the end result.

Sometimes Always Never

Corporate Animals

Morning huddles, after closing meetings, petty gossip and uninspired gathering/events seem to be the staple of any standard 9-5 job especially those in an office environment. Living it myself I cringe watching shows/films like The Office and Office Space. It is its own bubble and environment that is ripe for satire and some workplace violence … Continue reading Corporate Animals
