I am seeking an experienced, Auckland-based producer for my application to Kopere-Hou/Fresh Shorts funding round, this October. The script is called SHAPE OF MY HEART, and deals with teen cancer. It's just nine pages long, and is a very moving story with a bittersweet ending, loosely based on my time at Ronald McDonald House, and Camp Quality NZ.  

My first short as a writer-director was THE ODD SOCK THIEF, which starred Jimmy the Celebrity Dwarf, and Judy Bailey in a cameo. Whilst OST is a fun children's film, Shape is about the impact of cancer on a Scots family, and how it changes them - specifically, the father. Please feel free to download it online and reach out for korero if the story grabs you.
