Fish Upon A Star


A homage to children's bedtime stories and fairy-tales, Fish Upon a Star is a non-dialogue short film about a lonely old man who accidentally fishes a star out of the sky, only to become hooked (pun intended) when his initial desire for meaning and warmth in his life is gradually eclipsed by an ever growing greed.

As 1st AD, Screenwriter, Project and Transport Manager and Props Maker, I had the opportunity to be involved in a great many aspects of this project's production. Overall, working on this project has been a truly exceptional experience. And while film may not be my personal area of expertise, having the opportunity to work alongside such talented people on a project such as this has been an unforgettable, interesting and enlightening time.
