FELLAZ

(2018) - short

 

Director

 

 

When Andrew realises his barber is an old love rival he gets more than the undercut and quiff he asked for. 'Fellaz' is a comedy about two men laying the past to rest, a wrestle with some clippers and coming to understand that men like to look good too

DUTY CALLS

(2008) - short

 

Writer - Director

 

 

On a quiet night, an overweight warehouse security man is more concerned about watching his diet than in keeping an eye on the goods he is supposed to be guarding. This inevitably leads to unfortunate consequences in a tale of human frailty.
