Tidal [2016]

'Tidal' is my third short film and the first of a series of shorts to be set in the coastal Lancashire town of Fleetwood. A version of the script had been floating around for over a year before shooting . I am very pleased with how it has turned out. I am delighted to have worked with the supremely talented Director of Photography Ryan Eddleston, as well as some brilliant actors and crew.



Tidal examines a moment in the life of a young man [Lee] when he is faced with a difficult decision; to face up to his responsibilities and move forward with his life, or continue in fear and live to regret it.
