Here is a collection of improvised pieces I’ve made over the last few years. Some like Luke had a rough treatment and others like All Eyes On Thornbury and Will GreeneCat Lover relied on the site to inspire the shoot. At times my writing partner – Chris Harrigan – would throw in suggestions then attempt to film while trembling his hand.

Bored one day, Chris and I walked up to Thornbury village with a camera. The location pretty much wrote itself.
