Very excited that the Kickstarter campaign for my next short film project ‘The Treehouse’ went live yesterday and within 12 hours was nearly at 50% of the target!
We still have a way to go to reach the target and every pound that is pledged will help us to make the film better and better. From more money for the art dept and set build, better locations and more flexibility with how we light and shoot the film to more time with our brilliant VFX mentor and post production partners.

We would really appreciate your support, regardless of how big or small!
The Kickstarter campaign for my latest short film project ‘The Treehouse’ goes live just after easter!
The film is being supported by the BFI and Creative England and whilst we have already matched their investment we need to raise a little bit more to enable us to build a set that is integral to the story. The film is firmly in a ‘magical realism’ world and the flexibility that building the interior of the treehouse will give us will make a huge difference to the look and film of the film.
Set in the shadow of a family funeral, ‘The Treehouse’ is about a young boy Connor, and his mum, as they come to terms with a death in the family. To cope, he retreats to the treehouse he built with his father and where they spent many happy times together. Whilst there he meets Fleur, an enigmatic girl from next door who appears offering chocolate and friendship. She talks her way into the treehouse and into his life and helps him to face up to the future.
We have assembled a great cast of kids along with an experienced crew and production is scheduled for the end of May. We’ll be launching a mini-site just for the film but there will be updates on here as well as twitter, Facebook etc.
The Treehouse is a co-production by Angelic Films in association with Haus Pictures and Sleepless Films.
