Imdb Credits

My first short credit goes back to 2008. Working with From The Shadows LTD. It was short called 'The Blood Beach'. A mix between The Lost Boys and TombRaider. I was asked to act but knowing I had a camera I was also asked to start taking some behind the scenes images for the production.

My second experience was in 2011, working back with From the Shadows on their next low budget endeavour 'Monitor'.

From the Shadows

In 2013 I reunited with a friend who was working with Sundance Institution. It was to be another short, and another horror. I was asked to come on board as a stills photographer, then my roles doubled as one of the male cast pulled out at last minute. I stepped up and took the acting spot. We were pressed for time and shot the complete thing in a single weekend..

In 2014, Director and writer Olga Matkovska took the film to Cannes short film festival. It won best horror.
