Which for a film that was made mostly in a council flat and a shed in my garden, is, I reckon, independent film making at it’s best! Watch The Man Whose Mind Exploded here.

No war is holy. The view from South 8th Street, my home, on the most terrible day. Even after all the deaths that followed this obscenity, people are still killing in the name of god. It’s so fucking sad.

The short film I made with the brilliant Mik Artistik as the final installment in the 5 Random Acts we produced for Channel 4.

4 star reviews from the Times, Guardian, Independent and Time Out and The Man Whose Mind Exploded is now available on iTunes.

The Man Whose Mind Exploded and I have been nominated for a Grierson Award for Best Newcomer! This is very exciting.

Saturday’s BFI Flare Screening of The Man Whose Mind Exploded in London is sold out, but a few tickets remain for the ones on Wednesday the 26th of March 9 (18.20) and Sunday the 30th (20.40).

I’ll be at all the screenings.

Twice the fun/double the trouble?

Here’s a film I made in collaboration with Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart of The Kills about collaboration in Art.


Jamie were Allison were wonderful to work with and I’m really happy with it. I do regret not filming more of the tandem bike cycling round the galleries but the Tate were understandably concerned that we’d knock over a Henry Moore or something.

Also featuring: cinematography by PJ Palomaki, costume and makeup by Heidi Heelz, editing by Leonie Watkins and Ian Pinder, animation by Scot McPherson, the assistance of Richard Barnardo, A&R by Gary Walker, music by Nikky French and produced by Kat Mansoor.


Here is the trailer for The Man Whose Mind Exploded. Warning! it contains saucy material and love.
