On Meeting An Agent is a series of eight short animations based on the experiences of a robot debut novelist called Roland and his attempts to secure a literary agent. Any similarities to the human Roland Denning are entirely coincidental although, it has to be said, both wrote a book called The Beach Beneath The Pavement. These films have become surprisingly popular - in fact much more popular than my book. They were made very quickly using a web-based animation tool called xtranormal (which I believe no longer exists).

During lockdown I made a series of silent films featuring my window blind. You could call them structuralist films if you really wanted to.

A low budget feature I shot for Chris Monger in 1983 released on October 24th 2011 by the BFI on DVD and Blu-ray. It also includes the even lower budget feature REPEATER (1979) which I also shot.
