SHORT FILMS:

Over the years, I have appeared in numerous short films. These offer a chance to practice my craft and are at times an opportunity to support a director or writer who is trying to create their own mark in the industry. There happen to be some great short film stories around. Some of the short films I have appeared in are:


WARM GUN                THE BEACH
THE BAR                 HENCHMAN
SACRIFICE               DANCING BAREFOOT
SECRETS                 FLYING
MAX GAIN                RUSHES
LINDA'S BODY            NINE ACROSS
THE FIND                POINT ANNIHILATION

Over the last few years I have tried to make time to act in 1 or 2 short films a year made by students at the various films schools in Auckland, as I believe in supporting the emerging talent while continuing to practice my craft.
