Todd Sloane

Todd Sloane is a wrong’un. He is a butcher with a huge desire for girls, but also a huge fear of himself. Can he sort himself out?

Approach

I wanted to create a tense atmosphere, with sickly green tinted images and bold compositions to get under the skin of Todd  Sloane.

Immune

Sarah is pregnant and immune, can she escape a government body who are hunting those immune for a virus to harvest their DNA for a cure.

Approach

I wanted to use a 1990’s approach of long lenses to heighten the tension. The image has solemn colours but rich sunlight to signify hope.

Little Thief

In a world where men are owned subversive to men, Emma suspects that her assigned partner Leo is having an affair. She is out for revenge.
