Nice to meet you
I am a Film Maker, Editor and Music Composer.
This is my final year University film. Filmed in Torquay and Paignton in arctic weather conditions, it tells the story of a mysterious woman and a man who has just had his now ex-girlfriend reject his marriage proposal.
The film premiered alongside John Tomkins ‘A Dark Tale’ to a packed audience in Torquay’s Central Cinema, John was also a producer on Bliss. The cast includes Alice Maguire, James Darby, Louisa Wilde with some memorable cameo appearances by James Cotter and James Coard.
I connected with Emily via Twitter and the idea of making a music video was discussed. It was filmed towards the end of 2013 at The Globe Inn, Newton. Ethan King helped with the filming.

A film which was made as part of my second year at University. Having read a book written by Harry Patch (the last survivor known to have fought in the trenches during World War one) I was inspired to make a film set primarily in the trenches. When researching further I came across story’s of soldiers who had ‘deserted’ during the conflict and this provided the major element of the story.
As I found out, trying to replicate the look and feel of a WW1 trench on a University budget was challenging, but I’m very pleased that I made the film.
This was made purely as an experimental piece to try out some different editing techniques. There was no real planning involved in for this, I filmed as many random things as I could then worked out how to piece them together later in the edit.
Adding sound effects which don’t really have any relation to the film was another way of making it a very surreal experience for the viewer.

On this short film I worked with others to help create the sound design of the film. It premiered alongside Shoe Polish in March 2014 and has been entered into festivals around the world of a successful fundraising campaign.
A short film Written & Directed by Aarrone Sangster. A man is kidnapped by a masked assailant who offers him one last chance of redemption. As the film progresses we learn the reasons why the man finds himself in his current situation.
I edited and mixed the sound as well as recording some foley effects. I also composed the music which is largely atmospheric until the tension filled ending where the music takes a more religious tone.

I edited the film as well as compositing a few of the VFX shots. I also worked on the sound mix alongside Adrian Morgan and Isaac Ray.
