The Lion (8 minutes)

Writer, Director

The Lion is based on my own (fairly appalling) experiences recording corporate voice overs.

90% of the events of the film I have experienced first hand. There's just something about recording a voice over that can bring out everyone's worst qualities. We had a killer cast and crew and it was a blast putting this film together.


This film made me appreciate the value of a great casting director, Annie Rowe. She was unstoppable, she found us a terrific cast that really bring the script to life. 

Can't not mention the mighty Thom Heald, who brought some serious cinematic muscle. http://www.thomheald.com/

It's won a few awards, landed a Vimeo Staff Pick and has racked up almost 6 million views on YouTube.
