REFUGE: The short film I made

Blimey, I haven't posted here in a while.

You may not be aware, but earlier this year I attempted to direct my first short film, Refuge. It was inspired by the refugee crisis, imagining what life would be like for us if we in the UK were the ones plunged into the middle of a civil war. We had virtually no budget and very little time to pull it together, so it was a major challenge – all the cast and crew (before, during and after production) were amazing though, and I am pleased to say the final edit was eventually completed in July.

Now that the film has been submitted to various film festivals, we are able to make it public via social media:

A slight word of caution - there is one particular scene featuring blood which some might find slightly off putting (it's just after the 4 minute mark).

Please feel free to share with whoever you like via whatever channels you are on (if you're into that sort of thing) or via good old fashioned email. Anything would be really appreciated.
