He has storyboarded numerous short films and features, most notably the theatrically released Splintered (2010) directed by Simeon Halligan, critically acclaimed Judge Dredd inspired film Judge Minty (2013) directed by Steven Sterlacchini, and the short film The Box (2015), directed by Shaune Harrison, which was entered into the 2015 Cannes Film Festival Short Film Corner.
