Here is my short film Rose. I directed it while living in New Zealand…so most of the crew on this is from Lord of the Rings. It was a great experience and the film went off to play at numerous international film festivals and even won some amazing awards!

Hope you enjoy!

PS, please leave comments and tell me what you think!
